Furriday and the Mice Are Stirring




Kitties and woofies, my mom despairs of keeping track of my most favorite mousie for me.

This is the very one that I treasure.  It belonged to Robin, who has been gone 16 years, and then to Admiral and now to me.  I love this mousie and this is the very one that I placed at the small of mom's back night before last after Mom had lain on the floor trying to fish it out from under the china cabinet.  It took her awhile to find it again for me and then to fish it out... and I was just so happy to have it back.

 She put it on the floor for me that day, and I placed it in the bed that evening as I said before.  When she got up she threw it onto the floor for me to play with and Kitties,  it disappeared again. Sure enough, with the flashlight held between her toofs again, and her on the floor dislocating her shoulder just about AGAIN (kidding) she finally got it out from under and now, it is on a shelf. She found my corduroy ball as well  and my jingle ball but those  were under the sofa. She later found some hork from the Admiral UTB as she was looking for more of my treasures.  (she knows it was the Admiral's hork..it is that dessicated).

You may ask..why doesn't your mommy stuff something under the china cabinet so this mousie business won't happen?  Well, because anything used to do that would show from across the living room.

Here is a photo of the troublesome and much traveled mousie.  Its tail disappeared years ago and the other side of the mousie is messy. The key is there to show you how small it is.  That is one of those little keys with which you would lock a little "strong box" that holds important papers.

  3. That is an extremely precious looking mousie. We can see why all the kitties have loved it so much. The little ones you can buy nowadays with leather tails are probably not anywhere near as wonderful but perhaps you would like them well enough as a substitute for the meantime.

  4. I luf tiny mousies, too. I've never seen a black and white one, though. Our human wonders if a windshield brush scraper would help your mommy. Just swish it under things and see what comes out!

  5. My, a mouse would never last that long with me! First I chew the tail off to make it more aerodynamic. Next come the ears. Eventually I skin it. Maybe yours *should* stay on the shelf since it is so special! Princess Treasure

  7. Maybe she should buy you a new mousie and keep this one in a specil place since it has such memories for her.

    Enjoy your Purrfect weekend,

  8. That little mouse is so special since it has been passed around to all the kitties in that house. It is a cute tiny little mousie. Hope all of you have a wonderful day and a better week end.

  9. Arty Mouse hides our mice under the couch. We wishes she would come home and play with them.

    We are not sure what you mean by "pet finder" which probably means there isn't one in our area, but we would appreciate clarification.

    Mommy is in touch with an animal communicator who helped when Kimo was lost (don't know if you know them) but the communicator lives in CA and we are in MS so...................If there was someone local that would be great.

  10. Nice mousie. Now help keep it out from under things and Mom won't put them on a shelf.

  11. Oh the mousie is so special! It has the memories of Robin and Admiral san. And you love it so much. I can understand why your mom is trying to save it even if she dislocates her shoulder :-)
    Have a great weekend, Katie san!

  12. That mouse sure is special to have been loved by Robin, then Admiral and now you.
    Mommy has our toys in a basket which she checks daily. If a toy is missing, she'll hunt for it immediately...we keep Mommy very busy!

  14. I use the extra long feather wand stick- it sure is fun when the toys taunt kitties from under there

  15. We can't believe that teeny tiny little mousie has been around for over sixteen years! Gah.It would be lost in a day at our place (mostly because of the kitten babies as they are out of control always). We hope you get to enjoy it for years to come Katie :)

  16. That mouse has been around a long time and looks good for being that old.

    It's a very special mouse to have been Robin's, the Admiral's, and now yours.

  18. That is a tiny little mousie. No wonder it keeps getting lost. Mom is very nice to keep finding it for you!

  19. We really love that your mousie has been loved by three generations of kitties, Katie. That is so very sweet. :)

    Hugs to you and Mommy!

  22. I think that is the perfect size mousie! Too bad you lose it all the time - but that's what humans are for!

  23. Star says, "Have you tried a squeaky mouse? Have your mom look on our want page. I bet you would like a squeaky mouse and they're a wee bit bigger. Maybe a pretty carved piece of wood under the china cabinet? I'll be right over to groom your beautiful furs and purr about it!"

  24. That is a lovely little mousie. Mum keeps a bamboo cane indoors for poking mousies and other toys from under the oven and fridge. I have got my Scruffy Rat which I have had since I was a kitten so he is 12 years old now. Mum calls him Fred Bare.

  28. Well loved mousies are the best kinds!

  29. The Big Thing here: So much to mention!

    I made an "L" shape piece of 1" board to scoop toys from under things. No toy mousie here survives Iza's active attention for more than a few months. She "skins" the fur off them. There is an old ball here, too. It is a plastic ball that unscrews in half so you can put nip in, and it has holes to smell through. It pre-dates Skeeter.

    And your Mom commented about not remembering any "Tom Swifties" (like posted on the Cavebear blog). My favorite is "I'll take the prisoners downstairs", said Tom, condescendingly.

  30. That must be some strong mousie to last through 3 kitties!!

  31. Well, Miss Katie, I'm sure you love that special mousie, but if you didn't make it so hard to find, your Mom could keep better track of it. :-)

  32. Now, *that* is a tiny, precious, and well-loved mousie! We think it's wonderful how the sweet darlings that came before softened the mousie up with nibbles and lovins, then delivered it to you.

    Your brofurs, Nik & Rocky

  33. I can see that it has a special mousie Aura from being well-played with. Actually, the Human and I cannot BELIEVE that you have had that little mousie for 16+ years. Most efurrything I play with vanishes into the ether in no time at all, MOL!

  34. Dear Katie, me can see that mousie is a family heirloom! It is priceless. Your Mommy must be really nice to gets it out for yous too! Our Mommy does not do that since wes gots my Hairy Slobbery Sister Cinnamon. She thinks anybody on the floor is fair game an she kisses their face until they laughs so hard they can't breathe!

  35. That is one tough tiny mousie! We are not much for them, but the cat before was. My woman still finds meeces that had hidden from him. We wonder where he hid the plushy mouse with the catnip pouch. He carried it off and tucked it in inner space, we think. Here mousie, mousie!
