"I disapprove of this bowl being empty." -Mr. Patch
So last night we're sitting on the couch, watching tv and all of a sudden I hear "squeak, squeak..... squeak, squeak, squeak ...."
Me: Do you hear that?
A: Hear what?
Me: That.... squeaking...
A: (starts to ignore me and goes back to watching tv)
Me: Honey, seriously. Do you hear that?
A: Hear what???
Me: (gets up and walks to dining room, turns on light)
What did I find? Princess Chloe torturing a poor little field mouse! It was half dead and she was swatting it with her paws. My little hunter. So of course I scream and run up the stairs. A then proceeds to get a plastic container, scoop it up and throw it outside.
Not more than 30 minutes later, I go to let Henry outside and she had another one cornered in the kitchen! So A caught that one too and threw it outside. Poor little guys. Although, I have to admit, I'm quite proud of Chloe! I've never seen her catch a mouse before! At least she knows what she's doing. I told her no napping today. She needs to search high and low while I'm at work and round up all the little mice so we can catch them and release them back into the wild that is the backyard. She said not to worry. She's on the job.
