The Meece....

Well, we don't have the mice anymore. Except for two, who were out when the others got taken for adoption. I didn't want to give the mice up, but there wasn't a whole lot of choice after a look at the score board:

to start-21

to start-0

at the end-15

at the end-6

The mice kept mysteriously disappearing. I was a bit perplexed until the other night when I heard a mouse screaming. I looked over and Ko Ko had one by the tail pulling and *Squish* he pulled it right through the mouse house bars and then let him go so he could chase him.

I can't handle picking up any more dead mice. They don't eat them. They don't even leave any sores on them. They just play with them like they are toys and don't understand when their toys won't move anymore. It's what cats do, but it wasn't fair for the mice.

The cats are very disappointed. All of their mobile toys are gone, except for two. One we caught mid jump as Ko Ko was chasing him after the others had been dropped off and the other is still loose in the house. He was eating out of the garbage can today. They have a safer cage the last little two. I hope we can catch the other one.

You did the right thing - as you said, it's just what cats do...

Poor little meece! I knew there was a reason why we like our house set so far back from the street. The dogs would have given the rabbits heart attacks by now!

Yes, that is best for the mice. Bubbles catches outdoor mice all the time, and I try to save as many as I can. But it is what cats do, so I cannot get angry at Bubbles for acting like a cat.

Poor babies! I have a confession, though. When Mom took me and my cat mom in after we'd been abandoned, my cat mom was pregnant again. When she had her babies, I thought *they* were toys, too. Mom had to keep a very close eye on me and never let me alone with the little ones. I was only little myself then and really couldn't help it.

Oh my. Poor mousies, though I totally see the cats' point of view, being one and all.

The People would like a hamster, but they're pretty sure Buddah and I would try to do the same thing...
