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.
