Thats right kitty cats - I caught me a mouse this afternoon. Right after dinner - you may call it dessert. We had a great day. Lovely warm weather. Mum had a wee sleep in, then it was getting the chores and washing done, so that the weekend would be free for fun. The landlords came round to fix some plumbing and then mums friends came for a visit. Mum and the friends went off into town to visit the Te Papa Museum that was having a Meccano show and a Air New Zealand show. They did like looking at all the Meccano sets made up, and imagined all the men that made them had big old sheds at home, and spend many hours and dollars getting things together.
After mum made her dinner (lemon chicken risotto - a good old standby) I got my feast, but then mum chased me out the cat door as I started to do the old cat puking noises and doing that strange stretch that comes before a big old vomitus. Twenty minutes later she caught me trying to charge back into the house with a mouthful of mouse, the camera wasn't handy so luckily it is not rerecorded. She chased me outside, and I sat and played. When mum looked out the window she realised the mouse was not deaded, so she grabbed me to give the mouse a chance to get away (outside). I did manage to trap it again, before mum grabbed me a second time.
So after all that adrenaline action I am just plain tuckered out, and me and mum are hitting the sack at 10:30. She is enjoying her book and wants to read a bit before lights out.
