But there's a mouse in my house.

My lovely cat brought it in as a gift, I'm sure, but I've told her before that I don't care for these types of gifts.

Obviously she doesn't care.

And I'd also like to clarify that if she's going to bring me mice as presents, I prefer the dead kind.  Otherwise, I spend days on end trying to chase down a mouse.

Leah tried to help last night.  I noticed she was camped out right by the pantry door, so I figured the mouse had scurried in to hide.  So what did I do?  Opened the pantry, moved some of the things on the floor to give Leah plenty of room to search, and let her at it.

The good news was she got the mouse. 

The bad news was that she dropped it at my feet and I wasn't quick enough to get it before it scurried behind the refrigerator.

RATS!  I'm mean, MOUSE!

awe, we both have pet posts today. i guess leah likes the friendhship in a mouse since apparently she has a no kill rule?

cute...but stinks at the same time because you know there's a mouse in your house. :)

Tiffany said...

What a little sweetie. ;) I give it to her for not wanting to harm it, though. Hope you find it soon!

Aahhhhh, I hate mice!!

Annie said...

oh my gosh!! i would be screaming and freaking out!! that pantry door would stay shut until someone else could come take care of it for me! ;)
you are brave lady!!

Oh my goodness! I think I would probably scream if a cat brought me a live mouse. Dead ones are bad enough but at least they can't run and hide.

But I will give Leah an A for effort since she did catch the mouse (well, unless she caught the mouse outside and brought it into the house.....then she might get a full grade deduction.....lol).

Hahaha! I love how cats present their 'catch' to you! My cats have fake mice that they love to bat around and they will always come and present it to me when their done.

dumb kitties lol!

Oh my gosh!! Too funny! My cat has killed a few mice in our house too. We can always tell when there's a mouse in the house because she goes into predatory stalker mode for days until she finally gets it! It's great! I've hear that cats are proud of their catch and will want to show them off to their owners. Our cat leaves the dead mice bodies in the dog's water bowl! I don't know if she's trying to feed her or poison her!

Burn the house down.

(at least, that's what I'd do. Same goes for spiders that disappear when you go to get something to smash them with.)

let's get acquainted

I’m Stephanie - wife to one extremely handsome cop; mother to two extremely silly kids. The hubs and I have been married since February ’99. I love him more each day and simply can’t get enough of him. My daughter, Ashton, is 12 going on 17. She’s beautiful, creative, smart, and oh, so sassy. Taylor, our son, is 8 and is so much like his daddy it’s scary. He makes me laugh all the time with the silly things he says and does. He won’t remember what you told him 5 minutes from now, just like his daddy. I love to laugh and spend time with friends and family. I’ve also recently discovered a love for cooking and enjoy sharing recipes. I love finding new blog friends, so be sure to leave a comment so I can do the same!
