Mouse House


Yes, in yesterdays post that was another mousie I caught. When I caught it, it wasn't deaded for a while. So while it was still wriggly jiggly, I tried to carry it into my mums room and plonk it on the bed for a present. But she said no - No - NO!!!! And I had to carry it back outside til it was deaded.

We live in an old wood house, and with the changing of the season approaching the mousie families are moving about and stocking up for winter.

Mum is off to do some chores and stock up for Easter too, some nice buns for breakfast, some dvds and some new music to dance to.

  1. Well, it's the thought that counts, isn't it Poppy? It was nice of you to think of goving that not-quite-deaded mousie to your mum.

    BTW, that's a lovely picture of you relaxing on the comforter! :)

  3. You are SO CUTE Poppy and what a superb huntress! A not quite deaded mousie is quite a prize to present to your mum.

    You certainly deserve a nice nap now!

  11. The Humans have a strange reaction to mousies, especially the half deaded kind. Odd.

  13. It is too bad she didn't let that mousie come right on in. I bet you would have made fine companions for the winter.

  16. Doesn't your mum realise how much you're saving her in mouse catcher bills?

  17. But, but, wiggly jiggly mice are THE BEST! Doesn't your mum know that?

  18. That sounds like a great shopping list. We trust it also includes "treats for Poppu"!

  20. I think a mousie on the bed would be a welcome gift! But I also think my Mom would react the same as yours.

  23. That was so thoughtful of you to bring your Mum a present. I, myself, prefer them deaded too (or alive in a field 100 feet away). I hope you find nip and treats in your basket come Sunday. Dance one for Cat of Nine Tales! We like the oldies :).

  27. You are a very talented mouser, Poppy! The "lenten mice" have returned to our house, and we have been on Mouse Patrol! (Mousie Count so far: 5)

  28. Yes very clever!
    I brought inside Laura - a beautiful Burmese as I was sure I saw a rat under book case. Laura is a breeding queen & unfortunately was on call. Had no interest in anything but flopping on floor purring & wishing to visit the looove shack.
    I will tell Laura about you!

    Love Leanne NZ

    ps it was a rat - YUCKY and it had a lucky escape out kitchen door. But if it ever comes again blue bate is under book shelf. Autumn is here - not that we have ever had a rat before.
