came home to a little surprise!

I am not afraid of mice.. and I do actually think they are cute for the most part.. In fact there was a time in my life when I had a couple of fat rats for pets. but I dont like to be surprised by any type of little critter running around in my house!
I came in after being out to dinner with 4 girlfriends.. (such fun!) and frannie and figgy did not come running to see me... I went into the kitchen and they were extremely interested in something else that was hiding behind the vacuum cleaner that I had left out yesterday! I moved it a little and out it came!! My son and his buddy came out and wanted to catch it.. so Now I had two adult?? boys and 2 cats after one litte (though rather large) mouse! it ran towards me.. and up onto the chair I jumped.. as I screamed ummm.... and screamed.. umm.. a few times...
robert caught it.. then held it in front of the cats noses.. it was jumping around and I thought it would bite them.. so I screamed again.. get it out of here!! He said he was going to kill it.. and then I screamed some more.. "YOure not going to kill it!! take it out and let it go in the cemetary!! " then he started out the door talking about how it would come back in and he was going to have to kill it.. so I ran in the bathroom and opened the window and screamed some more at my husband... "dont let him kill that thing!! make him let it go.." I got a "what the hell are you talking about and whats going on in there?" then I yelled some more telling him about what was going on.. as my son carried the poor thing by the tail out to the barn to show him!
I dont know what happen to the mouse..
frannie and figgy are still looking for it!
and I have a sore throat!!!!!!!

I can almost picture it! Too funny. I am the same way about critters, though. No killing. The kids always ask me to get the spiders/bugs/etc because they know I'll catch them. My hubby smushes them.

I love your story. I would do the same thing. No animal killing in my house. My love doesn't understand it always but listens to me.......sometimes.
Have a great week.
greetings and a hug.

maybe the part about taking him to the cemetery caused some confusion...we has a mouse running around at work a few weeks ago...he was cute...but i don't like how fast they are...that's what freaks me out about them...plus the fact that they should be outside...cute story Viv!!!

Oh dear! Haha, Viv, I know it was probably a crazy time but it makes for a sort of funny story! My mother is deathly afraid of mice. Shes not quite a young woman anymore but she will jump, with the ease of a young girl, onto a table or other high place, if she sense one anywhere in here vicinity.

Yikes, poor thing, hope it got away unscathed.

UH OH VIV __ YIKEY YIKES double yikes !! I am so sorry the only good mouse is a ( delicately put for your sensibilities an expired mouse )) I AM as afraid and grossed out as if it were a LION -or snake . Moving to the country on acreage hasn't helped lol!! Can we say {{{field mice }}}}-- THis is me shaking -thinking about it . Now you see my bloodthirsty side --
I cannot watch them even on t.v --or sorry :( dwell on your pictures -- a fast scan past those . Also they carry diseases --ARGH !! can't dwell on that - OK gotta wipe that critter from my mind -- Kathy - ga

kathy said...

Poor critter was probably trying to stay warm! Glad you released (or tried to) him. We had a chipmunk about 7 months ago in the house...for 2 weeks. None of the 3 cats I have could catch it (it was on the 1st floor with the dog, so it was a smart chippie). lol!! I would have screamed too!

Oh no not a sore throat??? Take a teaspoon full of vinegar (apple cider if you have it! Helps change the PH balance to kill the germs that are trying to attach... A nurse friend turned me on to this.

Stay Well, Carrie
