Mouse!


We've got a new friend! This morning BoyFriend spotted a mouse when he was in the bathroom this morning. The appartment where we live is underneath another house and down into the ground. The inner part of it isn't "fixed up" in any way.. just concrete floor and walls and full of all sorts of rubbish + the freezer (where all the yummo food is!) and a spare fridge. The apt. was made as a convertion a few years back, and the bathroom is in that area and separated from the rest of the apt. with a solid door. There's a door to the bathroom, allthough we've never understood the point. First of all it's harder to get in to keep mom company if she's allready in there on her own. We're not tall enough to open doors, unfortunately, and mom isn't willing to install new handles on our level. Unfair! Anyways.. If you're small as a mouse you can crawl into the bathroom from the cellar. you can't if you're a Whippet. Not even a pug. Now Nimbus is laughing because he says it's hard to get in anywhere if you're a sausage shaped pug. He's just jealous. But we digress.. again..

We're not sure what to do about the mouse just yet. If it's not ruining anything we might just let it stay here for a while. They tend to get in here in autumn. If she (we're sure she's a she) causes mom trouble we'll have to put up traps, though.. We used to have mouse friends when we lived with auntie. Before she had the cavies she had Fancy Mice, you see.. Here are some pictures for you to enjoy. If you like mice, that is...

This one, Doris, is daugher of the two mice in the next picture. She's dove/tan. Father is the black/tan and her mother is the PEW (Pink Eyed White). See? We even know stuff about mice!
For now we'll just keep an eye out for her. Mom's seen her three times allready. Once she hid in the shower for a bit.. after first attempting to get out underneath the bathroom door, but having trouble jumping high enough from the floor to get in between.. LOL.. Mom had a good laugh. We'll keep you posted if anything exciting happen!

Hehehehehe, this is soooo funny! Cause guess what? Snickers just about caught a mouse today in the bedroom. She started scratching at her kennel & Mama thought it was odd, so she pulled the kennel out a bit from the wall, expecting to see a bug or something & there was a MOUSE! Mama shoved the kennel back, got a bucket & her & Papa caught it, tee hee! We better send Snickers over to sniff the mouse out for you!!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
