To creat good ch'i, a living wild creature should be brought inside the house to be played with.
If it dies during play, walk away from it. Dead things have negative engery - except when given as gifts to your owner.

See the mousey? I am checking it out after mum smacked it with her shoe last summer. I didn't bring it in the house, it came in all by itself. He didn't figure on meeting up with me or Mum.
Here mum moved it over so the grey mousey is on a lighter covered paper thing so you could see it better.
But I found a mousie the other day and left it on the floor by her 'puter bag. I wanted to make sure she didn't miss it. She found it just fine, then she moved it outside again. You can click on the pictures to biggify them.
