Gracie here. This has been a marvelous week for all of us except Mollie. The peep is so preoccupied that we could pull anything on her! And we sure did!
I can’t mention exactly who did it (the peep reads this blog because…well…it’s her blog!) but someone caught a mouse. Yes, yes, we do that frequently but this time we did something different.
Instead of putting it out in the open where everyone can admire it, we hid it in the closet so we could play with it during the day. If we leave it out the peep gets all “what’s this dead mouse doing here?” (insert cat eye-roll here!)
If parts are missing it’s even worse. The peep is terrified we’ll get worms from eating mice. They are quite yummy (a friend told me).
Anyhow Sasha (who has to be the star) ducked into the closet and came out with the mouse in her mouth. We had bets on how long it would take until anyone noticed. I won! It took three passes before the peep said, “that tail is too long for a catnip mouse!” How astute of her. Too bad Sasha wasn’t fast enough. The mouse was disposed of. The question is how long was it in the closet? We’ll never tell!
