Did you read it? Yay!
We got our brick this time for my parent’s kitty, Sir Moose-a-lot Goodyear Roadkill Thunderbottom! He’s a cat as large as his name!
I told his gotcha story over at Daily Dose, so I’m not going to say that again, but I’m going to tell you a funny story from just before Christmas.
My parents have a dual recliner loveseat so they can, after countless years in separate recliners, sit next to each other! Moose likes to sit on them, my dad mostly I think. And I think he likes this set up because he’s got his choice of blanketed laps to enjoy.
They were both in the recliner, or I should say they were all three in the recliner as Moose was in my dad’s lap. Dad and Moose were sleeping, as usual. My mom saw movement, looked down and a mouse(!) was crawling up her leg on top of the quilt!
She grabbed Moose so he could get it, but Moose missed seeing it. But since he was up (rudely awakened!) he decided to visit his food dish.
They live in the woods, and have had their share of critters getting in the house. And as many of you know, having a cat does not mean you won’t get mice occasionally. Moose will catch them, IF he sees them.
So then mom saw the mouse behind the chair and grabbed Moose again. (Poor cat!) But when they looked, the mouse was gone, again. I think Moose was done with this business at that time, so mom woke dad up, telling him there was a mouse under the chair.. And it came up and was on my dad’s feet! Bold little sucker! Apparently he knew how to avoid the cat, but not the people!
At that point my mom wrapped the quilt around the mouse and took him outside. She shook it out of the quilt and heard it scurry away in the leaves. Whew!
This all happened, as I said, before Christmas. So Greg and I found a very special gift for Moosy boy. We found a mouse toy that squeaks when it gets jarred. Perfect for mouse catching training!
I think you’ll see by the following pictures, that Sir Moose-a-lot Goodyear Roadkill Thunderbottom agrees!
Here he's getting his mouse, and I think he's pretty happy with it!
Oh, thank you, this looks yummy!
Look at that grab! Too bad the mouse isn't in the picture, but dang, it's gonna be dead!
He caught it! Chomp!
Nom nom nom!
Let's get a closer look look at that.. he is trying to stuff the whole thing down his gullet!
*gulp!* Dothent quite fith, mighth haff ta chew..
The mouse is mid-air here! He's a good tosser!
Fly, you crazy squeaker! I'm gonna catch you again and kill you dead!
So you see, adopting a kitty worked our pretty well for my parents. They love their Sir Moose-a-lot Goodyear Roadkill Thunderbottom!
