A Mighty Hunter

I have been a good kittie for mum the past few days. A few mousies thought they could sneak in the house and hang out. WRONG! Friday morning while mum was working she noticed I was patiently sitting at the door of the bathroom. Mum came over to look and saw what I had gotten for her. Mousie number one! Then mum worked the rest of the day and then left for a long time and didn't get back until after dark. But shortly after she got home I was chasing another little mousie around and finally got him cornered and killed! Mousie number two.
Mousie number three, well I am still working on that one. I had him in my mouth and put it down so I could play with it. But it ranned away. Mum says as much as I want to play with the mousie, the mousie doesn't want me to play with it! So I should just kill it and be done with it. But that isn't any fun! Mousies are fun to play with as they react and run around, but toy mousies don't move unless you move them!

And where did mum go last night? She went to a concert with Miss Lynn to see
Doc Severinsen. For those of you not old enough to know, Doc was the band conductor for the Tonight show when Johnny Carson was the host. Mum said the concert was very good (here is the local review) and they had seats in the second row! Mum loved being that close because you could see the people, mainly Doc. He wasn't just a little bright blip of bright clothing!

Wait, we interupt this post to bring you an update on mousie number three. I got it! I was just going off to have a snooze when I heard mum calling. Derby get back here and get the mousie and I did!
Mum says "Good job Derby"! Go ahead and take your nap!

Hi Derby,
Nice to meet you too! You look like my good buddy Jimmy Joe. He's a mouser too. I'm too ADHD to catch much of anything.
p.s. I posted some more pikturs.

You are so lucky, Derby, to have those mice to hunt down. Nothing here but bugs.
