    A Mouse In The House

    My cat Joey has been spending a lot of time down in the basement lately. He would sit on the basement stairway
    just staring into the basement floor area. I went down there a couple of times but never saw anything unusual.Yesterday
    evening Joey ran into the dining room and sat in the middle of the floor & released something from his mouth.

    It ran so fast under the couch, I could barely get a good look at it & thought it might be a big bug or spider. Since then
    it has relocated to my kitchen and it's now in a heating register near the stove. Joey stands guard every night & day waiting
    for it to come out. I'm heading to the hardware store tomorrow to pick up mousetraps. What a kitty I have.

    At least he is on the job! That mouse is likely already regretting his choice of cold-weather domicile!

    My Terrance Jeffrey spend a lot of time in the cellar, as he and Scrapster are not friendly at all.
    He is death on mice, and he is a ex stray and he is like Tabby greased lighting, and there is no Mighty Mouse to save the day.
    Poor little Mice, but they do chew the wiring!!!

    Isn't it nice to have a mouse alarm? My mouse alarm was my kitty Taz. I always knew when we had "visitors" because he would stand guard in the kitchen staring at the cabinets.
    My two felines now aren't as diligent in the mouse field.
    Jax, however, will get any bug he sees, even if I don't see them.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    Yay, Joey caught the mouse last night. He is a very patient little hunter. He came racing into the dining room & headed for
    the living room when Maggie & Smokey joined the chase. They were so excited by the new game and they made such a racket, joey
    released the mouse again & it ran under the couch. Geeze. I had it all planned out. Joey gets the mouse, I pick up Joey & set him
    outside where he will then release the critter. I got hold of joey's back leg but couldn't hold on because I thought I might hurt him.

    I don't want to hurt the mouse (or Joey), just want it out of the house. Back to the drawing board.
