Skinny Spider and Mice
Speaking of the cats, last Thursday night we were going to sleep, we were actually in bed, and it was seconds before I turned out the light on the nightstand. Randy had already fallen asleep. And then Shadow jumped up in the middle of the bed with a live mouse in her mouth!
In the springtime mice somehow always get into our old house. The 2 cats have a great time hunting and catching them. And now Shadow likes to bring them to us!
I was so shocked and concerned that if we startled Shadow she'd drop the mouse in the bed, all I could do was sit perfectly still and repeatedly bump Randy's arm to wake him. The only words I could get out were "The cat has a mouse! A live mouse! In bed!"
Luckily Shadow turned and took the mouse down to the kitchen, where Randy dealt with it. Both cats continued to look for other mice all night that night.
