The Case Of The Disappearing Mouse June 3, 2017

Filed under: Animals,Cats,Katerina — Janet @ 3:23 pm

I pulled the bedroom curtain aside early this morning and sure enough there was the cat on the mat………but instead of stretching and reaching up to get in, the cat’s back was to me and she appeared to be eating/chewing on something.  A telltale tail was seen – thin, black.  O.K. she had a mouse – and she was busy.  No wish to come in.  I was a bit dismayed but at least the poor creature being devoured was not a bird.

I went upstairs and went out on the back deck and down the outside stairs to spy on the cat and its creature.  THEY WEREN”T  THERE.  Nor did they appear anywhere nearby.  Two hours later the cat appeared – alone – wanting her breakfast.

Just 2 small hand carved wooden animals.  I particularly like the grain of the wood in the little bear.  Simple objects which I have on my desk.  (Part of the clutter to the despair of my sons!)
