A Cat Doing What A Cat Does June 21, 2018

IMG_5759  Sad demise – I’ve buried the bird and feel awful. I’m glad Katerina doesn’t catch birds very often.  I buried a field mouse yesterday – I felt badly about that also – but not quite so bad.

Does the cat’s recent behavior have anything to do with the Solstice?  I wonder.

Garden Cleanup November 4, 2016

Filed under: Cats,Katerina,Mice — Janet @ 8:19 pm

So far since coming home from our recent trip to the East Coast I have buried 4 wee mice and 1 large mouse (hope it wasn’t a rat).  Our cat Katerina likes to leave her delicacies on the mat outside our bedroom window.  img_1573


Is The Mouse Still In The House? July 25, 2015

Filed under: Cats,Mice — Janet @ 6:41 pm

cats and squirrels 057     I think the mouse is still with us.  Now the cat is very interested in the area around the sofa.  My study is a messy fortress.  The siege continues.  The only thing I could imagine that would be worse would be a squirrel.
