YUCK! We have a mouse. Apparently he’s very aware I never use my sweeper (we’ve all wood floors so we use a broom). Well, today we got the broom out. We were going to sweep under the fridge. Suddenly Tyler screams (but keeps hold of the sweeper pole thing!) “There’s a MOUSE!!!” My boy is only 10, wears an 18 & is as tall as me but a mouse has rendered him into a squealer.
I come running, grab the pole, he grabs the bottom of the sweeper & outside we go calling for the cats. I take the sweeper apart & can’t find any mouse. I left the bendy part & the metal pole outside with the sweeper body & come walking in with the floor attachment.
“Tyler are you sure you saw a mouse? I took it apart & couldn’t find it.” Tyler midway through grabs the attachment & shakes it…suddenly out pops a mouse tail! I snatch it right out of his hand & go running for the door. Mouse butt is now poking out the top & as I reach for the door he jumps! So…the mouse or mice I’m sure are now STILL in the house.
Being the smart person I am I say yes when the kids ask if they should let the cats in (even being vegan I’m SOOOOO not an animal lover so they stay outside!) so they can eat the mouse (less cat food I have to buy!) So…in they come…I’m working in the dining room & suddenly SCREAMS!
from the bird….
I run in ’cause I still didn’t know what was going on. Ninja is on the couch staring at poor Light! Poor Light is having a screaming fit & is on the floor of his cage in the back corner trying to peck his way out. I just lost it! That bird was Rhea’s gift for Christmas. With the cage & everything it came to nearly 300.00 for a cockatiel that’d let the kids hold him vs getting a parakeet that won’t let you hold it (he won’t…he actually bites & no one has ever forced him to come out of the cage. I think we should have gotten the other bird…not as ‘smart’ but so much cheaper…I think Lights’ just uppity.)..
So…sorry Light. I’ll give you some extra bird crack this week (he loves his millet!)
