See this blank white spot…. no photo of the caught mouse that plays in the knife drawer in the kitchen that those cats live in… in  the house that Nadine owns!!!!!!!!!!

You all know how much I love furry creatures. I’m like EllyMae Clampett… SnowWhite…  I’ve raised orphaned baby opossums for Pete’s Sake! A law has been passed out our house that All Furry Creatures are ALLOWED to eat cat food from the back porch without fear of the Shotgun… could be my opossums!! Or relatives. Opossums only live about 3yrs and Pete and Pattie were released in 2003… long gone. But all opossums with white tipped ears are given a free cat food. I’m a freak about it.

Roy called one day, “There’s a dead opossum in the road. I’ve done a quick autopsy and have determined it’s not yours so don’t freak! Just keep drivin’.” Becuz he knows how I reacted to the dead one at the end of the driveway… which wasn’t mine either but you know there’s still a scream of horror anyway!!

So here we have mice in the house… a whole different critter!

We have talked about puttin’ out poison but I’m not thrilled by it. And totally scared to death the cats will get into it. A long time ago… back when Monster was an outside/indoor cat… Roy and him were out workin’ on the truck. Roy noticed that Monster had what looked like antifreeze on his chin. He called me to see what he needed to do and I told him. I would have loved to see him tryin’ to get that cat to ingest peroxide!! Monster is THE easiest cat to doctor but Roy is not the best doctor. Scary stuff until that cat puked!!

Crisis averted.

And then I opened the knife drawer…

“EEEEUUUWW!! EUW!! EUW!! RAT POOP!!!”

Roy comes runnin’!! “It’s not rat poop.”

“GROSS ICK GROSS EEEEEEEEUUUUUWWW!!!!!! GET RID OF THE RAT POOP!!!”

“It’s not rat poop, it’s mouse poop.”

LIKE IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE!!!!!

Poison was promptly bought and put out in places the cats can’t get... lazy bastards!!

Yikes! So your cats can't catch the mice for you? They totally should. It's in their blood or gene pool or something, right?

Tell the cats that until they catch that mouse...half rations.

Just a suggestion.
