A Mouse in the House

Last night, as I was enjoying a conversation with my sister-in-law, she all of a sudden stopped and said, "Um, there is a mouse by your Christmas tree."

(Yes still have Christmas up at our house. I mean, it takes so long to put up, what's the rush?)

Anyway. Mice are definitely not welcome in my living room. So of course I yell to the cowboy that there is a mouse, and quickly, he grabs the cat to come and catch the mouse. That's the most logical solution, right?

But Moley didn't really understand what she was looking for. She just thought we were welcoming her the warm house to lounge around. I mean, what else does a 4-month-pregnant cat want to do? So she headed toward the stairs, which is for some reason, her favorite place to lay. (It must be the shag carpet.)

I went after her trying to explain that there was a treat in the other room, as I heard a loud pound and the husband say, "Dang, I'm good!"

I brought the cat back in and saw a dead mouse on the floor.

"Wow, did you kill him yourself?"

And he said, "Yep, with my bare hands. Well, with this flashlight."

I must say. It was pretty impressive. Kind of like a knight in shining armor killing the dragon for his princess... Okay, maybe not, but I was still impressed. I mean he is my knight in shining armor...or a t-shirt and lounge pants. However you want to describe him.

So we brought Moley over to the mouse, to which she immediately started playing with it. I ran to grab my camera and had to tell everyone to hold up so that I could get some pictures of this amazing moment. The cowboy still doesn't understand that I like to document everything with pictures, so he went a little too fast for me, but I was able to catch these shots.


Which right afterwards, I yelled in disgust at my toddler who tried to grab the mouse out of his dad's hand, cause he wanted to hold it too. So gross.

Oh, and where is the sister-in-law do you ask? She stayed in the other room. I don't know why.

Things are pretty eventful in a farm house, wouldn't you say? I mean, this was quite the excitement.

Stay tuned for more. Coming up next: Dog opens the front door at 2 AM and let's himself in while forgetting to close the door behind him in the middle of winter. You don't want to miss this story!
