One last mousie showed up. He was hiding in the big windows that go to the floor and I kept pawing at the door which was almost totally open. It was night time and mum turned on the lights to see if she could see anything. She didn't, but since it was time for her to sleep, she shut the door.
So as she got ready Sunday morning to get Grampie for church, she looked over to see me pawing at the closed door. To her surprise she saw the mousie running up and down the screen! Below are pictures of the mousie as it moved around the screen.
Even though mum was ready to leave she wasn't going to let this mousie just sit there for the time she was gone. She was determined to make sure he didn't escape.
So she slowly and carefully opened the door and smacked the mousie with a shoe. It dropped down to the bottom of the door and I kept watch on the mousie while mum went to get a paper towel to pick up the mousie. But then as she tried to pick up the mousie, it ran away! But not far and I was right on it! I pounced on it and then mum smacked it again with the shoe. It was just twitching and then mum smacked it again!
So once she picked it up she put it inside a bag and took it outside to the trash. Mum showed it to Grampie when they got here. It was still dead and Grampie said it looked like a baby mousie. Mum just keeps looking to find where these guys are getting in the house. Must be some small hole that she can't find. She has even paid the Governator to come in but all they do is put out poison or traps. Mum says that she can buy lots of mousie traps for what she pays them and the problem still isn't solved.
No I don't get to eat the mousies. Like Max said, they could have cooties and mum doesn't want me to eat anything that might have cooties on it. Plus just in case the mousies might have been at the poison, mum doesn't want me to get that either!
So since Sunday morning we haven't had any more mousies, so mum is hoping that we got this little family eliminated.
Plus we found a story about a kittie with lots of toes, maybe even more than Mittens, who lives in the UK. He has 26 which they are trying to figure out if this is a record.
