Mouse Busters

Who ya gonna call? Mouse Busters!

The little guys are starting their own business. At this time the score is Harper and Ramona, 3, Mice 0. It gets pretty wild here around 3 AM when they are chasing a terrified critter who should know better than to come out in the open when these two are around. I found one hiding in my slipper one morning. I'm not in the least afraid of mice, since I kept them as pets when I was a kid. I just picked up my slipper and dumped mousie out the window, onto the roof, to Ramona's chagrin. Mice aren't allowed in the house, I figure they should know that by now so if they get killed, the next generation should be smarter. But I won't turn one over to the hunters if it is smart enough to find a place like my slipper to hide in. And we have pretty mice, brown with big eyes and a white underbelly.

Last night the wind was whipping around here and Harper came to snuggle in my arms. We kept the wood stove going and it is below zero right now. Our biggest snow storm in two years is predicted for tonight. Yippee. We could get two feet.

I don't think they call it hunting anymore. It's now called behavioral enrichment.

I can just imagine what it looks like when they are both in full stalking mode. The best High Definition Nature Program ever produced.

Finny & Buddy would loooove to have some real mice to chase! If you see an orange tiger and a white with beige spots and racoon tail, just send 'em home when they've caught their fill, ok?

Enjoy the snow! Wish we'd get just a little, but we've probably only got about 2 more weeks where that's a possibility.

I agree, it was the mousies fault for not learning the rules about staying outside the house. Stay warm!

You could get two feet of snow -- 'Yippee'?

We have around six inches, and we all think that is PLENTY, especially since it is still snowing.

Different stokes...

MOUSIES, we get them here too. But mum sets traps to kill them. So they usually don't make it to my part of the house to take care of.

You can have the snow. I am ready for warm weather and sunshine.

With those two on the job no mousie is safe!
