Mice!

edited October 2004 in General Discussion
You know Dawnie rescued three baby mice and tried to raise them, but they died.

Well, the other day, Vixie, the very fat lazy lady cat, caught and killed a mouse in the utility room. Dawnie told her she was a good girl. I had to dispose of the mouse carcass.

Then, this evening, Dawnie noticed Vixie staring intently at the base of a shelf unit in the utility room. She moved it slightly and there were mice under it.

Well...now...rescued baby mice are one thing. Mice running loose in the house are another. Dawnie demanded that I do something.

I moved the shelf unit and managed to kill four of the mice with a yardstick. They were young ones. Mom and another young one escaped to other parts of the room, so we set out some traps.

Not 10 minutes later, Vixie caught and killed the remaining youngster. Mom is still at large, but there are four traps and Vixie waiting for her.

Funny thing about big-hearted women like Dawnie. Whether you kill it or rescue it depends on where you find it.

    We don't rescue rodents here at the Miller household. They're always trouble and they make more quick enough to replenish any shortages.

    No such thing as a good rodent in the house!

    I would like to see a post about someone beating some newborn kittens to death with a yardstick. All the bleeding hearts would come out of the woodwork then......

    Nunn, your insight and perception is ageless. Your statement is so true that it needs to be carved in stone to endure.

    All the women in my life have one thing in common: they don't want rodents anywhere near them, but they don't want me to kill them.


    Figure that one out.

    O Lord,
    grant me the Serenity
    to accept the things
    I cannot change
    the courage to change the things I can,
    and the supreme firepower to make the difference.

    My cat frequently comes busting thru the pet door and turns a live rat loose in the middle of the floor. Don't know why but they always head straight for me. I've learned to quickly pick my feet up when I hear the pet door bang open and that squeeling sound. I think the cat just enjoys watching me spaz out.

    The other day, it happened again, but this time it flew straight at my head! I almost sprained something trying to pick my feet up and duck at the same time. It was a dove. I know the cat got a big chuckle out of that.
    G O O D KITTY!!

    Don't forget, this often applies in their attitude toward us men.[:D]

    That should become the quote of the century. Thanks Nunn. I am tucking that away to use myself.

    I think we should present it to our Commander and Chief. Simple words that justifies military action and is a truism that will be difficult to refute.[;)]
