Mighty Meezer Hunter!

Us Ballicai and our beans live in the country, and once in a while some interesting critters get into the house... like mousies!

So last night Momma was sittin' at her pooter workin' on a writing project, Marilyn was snoozin' on the JVC, and me and Brainball and Dorydoo were runnin' in a thundering Kitty Elephant Herd. Alla those things are real typickal around here.

But when Momma heard "SQUEAKIE SQUEAKIE SQUEAKIE" from the baffroom, she and Daddy came runnin' to see what me and Brainball and Dorydoo were into... or onto!

Turned out I'd caught a mousie. That mousie must not have been furry smart, comin' into a house with four kitties! I took him into the baffroom to play with him (the baffroom's where I kill Evil Coffee Stirrers, too), and Brainball and Dorydoo were helpin' me out. We were all in the bafftub playin' with the mousie, we were real ecksited. There was so much ruckus that we woke up Marilyn, and she jumped down off the JVC to see what was goin' on.

But when Momma and Daddy got into the baffroom, Daddy tried to take the mousie from us!

Well, I wasn't havin' none of that. I got that mousie in my mouth and run offt with him to the kitchen. Then I started playin' with him again and batted him under the fridgerator thingie. I couldn't get him after that, but Daddy was able to reach the mousie's tail just barely, and he got hold of him and pulled him out. Then Daddy took the mousie outside (the mousie was still alive -- the beans got involved quickly). DAGNABBIT!!!! Why'd he hafta take my mousie?!

Sheesh.

I don't know why Momma and Daddy wouldn't let me eat the mousie. But they nefur, efur, efur fuss at any of uskitties when we catch a critter. They praise us for bein' Mighty Hunters. It makes us feel so good.

So even though I didn't get to eat the mousie, I did get to catch one and play with him a little, and here I am lookin' mighty satisfied with myself.


Ariel, next time we get togethur, we'll hafta hunt mousies!

My big bruther Mao told me stories of how they used to live in a howse that had lotsa mowsies owtside, and he and Rocky wood bring 'em into the howse at nite thru the cat door and then play with them. Once they put one on the bed. And the FL and Mr TF wood be up for a long time trying to ketch the mowse with thare hands becuz they don't like to lissen to the sqweeking ... Mao sez peepul are reely bad at mowse hunting.

Mao I learned about it at Marilyn's blog - You surely are a great hunter - you played it with it too long I think or you would have eaten it already before the beans got involved...

Miss Peach>(^,^) said...

Next time tell the mouse to be quiet and not wake Marilyn....you might have better luck keepin it:)
Love Miss Peachy

Ariel said...

Hi My Sweet Mao,

"Wow" you are a great hunter too.

Ali & Fiona said...

You are a brave hunter Mao, we are proud.

Caesar and Princess said...

Oh wowie MaoMao.
What an exciting time at your house. we never get a mouse here... just a jumpy spider.

Kaze, Latte, or Chase said...

Good job hunting!!! I think all meezers have that hunting gene because I am the House Hunter in our house.

Latte
(they seem to always let me finish munching on the insects...)

Daisy said...

Very very impressive Mao! I have never even seen a mouse before. I'll bet he would have tasted good. I am guessing that his insides would have tasted like spaghetti. Maybe.

Yoggie said...

You are a very good hunter!
Yes, humans are crazy taking our preys away, arn't they?
Have fun brother!

Rosie said...

Wow, you guys are very good hunters! Your humans were really fast in getting your prize away from you. What a gyp.
We usually catch our critters at night, so our humans don't find out about the business until the morning.

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Mao, next time you guys should lock the baffroom door! He, he, he, wouldn't that be funny?

I have never even seen a real live mousey, just my fuzzy mouses.

The Furry Kids said...

It sounds like you guys had a party at your house last night. Thundering herd of elephants and mousie hunting? Wowie!

Love,
Tazo

Gretchen said...

I'm so glad all ya'll got to play with a real live mousie. You're very alert.

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh.

Sometimes mice can have diseases so it might be good that you didn't eat it. how awesome you got to play with it and bat it around and stuff. oooo I'll bet that was much more fun than even a fev-ver butt mousie!

lordjaders said...

Oh how wonderrrful forrr you, Mr. Chairman. Mousies would be sooo delightful, howeverrr, living with a rrrat terrrier, well therrre is a little hunting competition. I am so sorrry yourrr beans stole him frrrom you. You look quite content.

Yourrr Furrrend,

Jade

Derby said...

Good job! I had mousies in my house too a few weeks ago. Mum won't let me eat them either!

Henry Helton said...

I WANT A MOUSE! That sounds like so much fun. You and Derby are great mouse catchers.

Karen Jo said...

Good job on catching the mousie, Mao. Playing with it in the bathtub must have been lots of fun. It's too bad the beans took it away, but if it's stupid enough to come into a house with four cats in the first place, maybe it will come back.

Eric and Flynn said...

Oh no that wuz mean taking yer mousie away when yoo wuz doing rodent control furr yer Beans.Mum nefurr takes my mousies away, but I yooshully give them To Eric ennyway when they won't play wiv me ennymore. One day one uv us whapped a dead mousie unner the frij an mum didn't know till there wuz an awful smell.

Parker said...

Mice are OK - I liked to catch and eat them when I was feral. Now I just want to play with them.
