A mouse in my house.....

Today, I'm hardly hard at work up in the computer room aka exercise room (no I don't exercise anything except my right not to exercise)!!! In early Spring Mom ordered something for this room. It came in a box labeled "Mouse Platform". I was intrigued by the box....but like my fellow felines, didn't lose any sleep over it or what might actually be in the box. My motto is naps first! However, recently mom was missing for about 2 days an hour. My tummy was growling so I figured it was time for rescue and recovery of said Mom.













I found mom and, unfortunately, the flashy beast...they are joined at the hip.
Lo and behold here is the 'Mouse platform' fully equipped with a mousie with a very long tail that ever so slightly moves.I told mom not to worry I had my eye on the mousie and its tail. I also expect there is something very wrong with the flashy beast. In this picture it portrays me as laid back, lazy feline. When, in fact, this is my famous nonchalant pounce in progress pose. You felines know the one, where we are hardly breathing, our eyes appear drowsy, but there is that every so slight tilt in the ears while the brain is calculating the Physics involved in the Pounce.

  3. Hello Madi, Diva Cat!

    We thoughts it was going to be a real mouse, s in VERMIN and were going to volly to come and gets it fer yer (we are the Krays rember?). Turns out it a compoooter thing and we not eat wires any more.

    Sooo about the ears thing, we have observed Margaret the neighbours cat very closely and can confirm a CAT will spring without warning. Will be watching her ears next time...

    Lol

    Hector and Bonny too!

    PS We saw your admission that it wasn't really icing on the leaf yesterday. You know, mum was convinced your mom a cakey bakey lady 'til she was told.

  4. Madi, you are such a clever feline!
    The old "I'm pretending to rest my eyes, but I'm really keeping an eye on that mouse thing" ploy!
    Chin scratches to you,
    Hugs to Mom,

  5. Oh, I know that position. Simone has it when she's deciding whether she wants to attack something or let it be - for now. It fools some, but not me. I bet that mouse, being new on that platform, has no idea what you're thinking. Very feline of you, Madi.

    lotsa licks, Lola

  21. Madi! You know the best places to sit! Watch that mouse! When it gets big enough you can eat it.

  22. Careful how you time your pounce Madi those mousies are sneaky!

    The mouse on mommy's desk used to have a tail and I liked to chase it but mom must have chopped the tail off cause it doesn't have one anymore, poor mousie. It doesn't matter I will get that mouse someday, MOL.

  23. PS from Cindi's Mom.

    I lost my internet connection last night just after I did my Squirrel Eyes post. It has been coming and going for almost two weeks now, very frustrating.

  24. We know that is the ready to pounce mode really Madi. Sometimes when I wait for a mouse, I stand motionless and barely breathing waiting for exactly the right moment. Then Eric comes stomping along and scares the mouse off.
