On a hat trick

My lovely, furry, purry kitty evil murdering bastard cat has gifted us with two mice in two days.  And I’ve found both of them.  Pah!  Tomorrow, I’m having a lie-in so that my OH can do the honours.

You don’t care?  You want to hear about my running?  Just a short run around the block, and a leisurely, if expensive, stroll from Kings Cross to Waterloo via Covent Garden.

    Pierrot is clearly a gifted hunter. What can you expect, when you make him try to earn his food and film him at the same time? So mean!

  2. Mice? Mice? My old German Shepherd Dog gifted me with a badger – alive! Deal with that…..
    A short run is a run nonetheless, keep going!

    I’m fortunate – our 2 cats are terrible hunters. Think we had a moth once, and that probably managed to escape.

    Sounds like a fruitful stroll.
    Better dead mice than live ones running up the stairs!

  5. A short run is still a run. I like the kitty story, although not so much the mices.

    run is a run, did you buy anything nice? aaahhh kitty just leaving you a little present, thank goodness ours are too old now to worry about mice 🙂

    Oh, I know what that is like… only it was my dog on Sunday morning that surprised me… she stood at the door looking as though she’d found something of interest but wasn’t sure if she was allowed it or what, if she was, she should do with it! Thankfully at least a ‘drop it Doris’ works with her… unlike the cat who raises her heckles and hisses… how dare I take her prize away!

    LOL have to agree rather a dead one than a live one I then spend an hour trying to save…great run did you buy nooo shoooos??

      Nooo swimsoooot, nooo shoooos, three books and some bike lubricant from a man in Evans who seemed shocked that I ride a bike, yet don’t know how to strip one down and reassemble it. How come it is fine to drive a car without knowing anything about engines, but not to ride a bike without having a degree in bike maintenance? Grrrr.

    Fullest sympathies. My cat just wins the award for the naughtiest cat in the street. He kept us awake for most of last night rampaging round the house and standing on us. Fortunately as Louis used to be an indoor cat, he hasn’t leant to hunt very well. I would have more chance of catching a bird than him. The entertaining and far more pleasant alternative is that he hunts cuddley toys instead. He brings them down the stairs and leaves them round the house. When next door was looking after him he dragged a teddy bear from upstairs in our house, through the cat flap, through next doors garden and through their cat flap- I’m not kidding!!!

    Good shopping. I always find this just as exhausting as running so doing shopping and running in one day means, in my mind, that you ahve done TWO training sessions today. Good work.

  11. Ah yes… Never underestimate the comedy value of a ‘strikethrough’ 🙂

  12. EEEEP! My dog came in one night with a bloody, frothy face…….and after further investigations, I found a bloody, frothy hedgehog with it’s insides on the outside! As a pacifist….I almost passed out! x
