    • I hate waking up to that “eek eek eek” that I know is a mouse being chased by our cat. Our cat has now spent the last 24 hours staring at a spot in our closet. I hope when Stewart finally gets the darned thing, he leaves the body where we can find it!

    • Thanks, Dianna. Not that funny though when you are lying in bed hoping the cat does not bring you the mouse – and drop it on the bed – perhaps still alive.

    I don’t comment often but you are my spirit animal. And are very cool too. Wait, whoa, was that 80s speak?
    And I love your writing and your sensibility. If that makes sense. Ha ha.

  5. What else can you get him to do in his sleep?

    • Turn over if he is snoring… haven’t tried much else, but perhaps I should!

    He seemed really out of it. Is it just because he’s a heavy sleeper?

    • He was in the middle of a dream I think, and he kept trying to incorporate the whole mouse conversation into the dream so he wouldn’t have to wake up.

        That happens to me sometimes. Like, when I’m trying to sleep late on a weekend, and somehow, someone in my dream asks me when I’m going to get up, and what am I going to make for breakfast!

  7. The only thing close to mouse noise in the night for the hubs and me was when this horrible noise came from the AC unit outside our bedroom window. Sonething (?) met its demise by getting caught in the fan. Awful noise. Of course the husband slept right through it. I nudged him awake to go investigate. He found remnants of fur and guts and sprayed it down with the hose. We’re guessing it was a rat. Yuck.

    • Yuck is right! All the mousies in the neighborhood are trying to get in now that the weather has turned colder. It’s been one big game for our cats. Even our really fat cat came up from the cellar last night with a mouse dangling from her mouth.

  8. The joys of having a cat. Mine is so fat and old, he wouldn’t know what to do with a mouse if it ran in front of him. He’d probably have a heart attack.

    • All my cats love this time of year, when the mice try to get in and the cats are thoroughly entertained with murder.

  9. If he is anything like my cats, he will bring it to you as an offering. Wanting to share, perhaps he will leave it at the foot of your bed.

    • I am always afraid he will want to bring it to us IN BED. And it might or might not be totally dead.
