Oh MY oh MY MY MY!

Mom was eating her curds and whey this morning (oatmeal) and I came crashing (yes I did actually) through her feet on the floor as she sat at the computer, and landed at the wall under the desk.  I hurried out crashing her feet and ran to my clients trampoline stored against the wall.  I flew out of the room and tried with all my might to get the hall for closed  It had a flat iron keeping it open.    Mom rose and closed it somewhat and a nasty looking dark gray mouse-- or rat one, scurried out and across the living room.  I chased it, cornered it- and it slipped under the china cabinet.  I am now glued to the carpet in front.   Who knows how long the standoff will last.




Brovver is here till in the morning, so mom has to start with the eggs.  She already cooked the bacons.  Cinnamon toast too.  We thought the plumber would be here but our seeming emergency stopped.  Mom and I and brovver too heard water running somewhere (sound seemed in the pipes or something only in the bathroom). He was supposed to be here 8 this morning but mom said the sound stopped finally.  She will re-make the appt. and try for an inspection next week.


By the way, Mom was pulling my leg about saving and using my furs.  You were right.  But she'd have a heckuva pillow or blankie of she did!

Look, I brought Donkey, Mousie and Turtle to us last night.  Each with a happy announcement.




Look how big Bald Eagles really ARE.  This is a good comparison shot.  Sorry Tabbies...:-(

I hope you catch that mouse for your mum!

That mouse better watch out, Katie is on guard!

Tell mom bean not to wait too long for the plumbing inspection. If there is a problem there could be flooding and your toys might get washed away!

Brian said...

The mouse hunting sounds like a pretty fun time sweet Katie!

Eastside Cats said...

Katie, did you need a cloth to wipe the drool off of your chin as you sat and waited?

My Mind's Eye said...

Brovver is so lucky to have an entertaining sister like you Katie Isabella
What time is breakfast?
Hugs cecilia

We hope you did catch that Mouse Katie.
And that emergency water issue is solved quickly.

Wow! You are a mighty Huntress, Katie!

I, Genji, was very upset because #1 actually got a lizard out of my mouth today...

Purrs,
Tama and Genji

Dearest Katie Isabella,
WOW, glad that your brovver is there too and no doubt you will catch that mouse/rat soon enough!
As for the water running, you better be very careful.
Hugs,
Mariette

Oh my gosh, an unwanted visitor. I hope you can humanely chase him off

pilch92 said...

Yikes! You are a very brave kitty. And sweet too . XO

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

OMG Katie! You are not only beautiful, you are very very brave. I am not at all sure that a rat would not end up chasing ME, ha ha ha. Honestly, I bet you didn't know that I am kind of a coward. Lub me anyway? XOXO

Summer at sparklecat.com said...

How fun, a critter to chase! I get the feeling that your human isn't quite as willing to help you with the catch as mine generally is! She says it's because I can't handle it myself. Maybe yours thinks you are more capable.

Tamago said...

Oh mousie! Sounds like you had a very exciting time chasing him. Mousie must be very careful when he comes out of hiding!

Pam and Teddy said...

Oh boy! You'll get that mousie I just KNOW IT! How dare it invade your domain! As for the sound of water dripping - I hope your Mom will make sure somebody checks it out ASAP - that sound is a "WARNING" !!! Must be. You sure don't want a big flood to happen - EEEEK! Nice that you brought all of your babies to bed last night - I also know that your Mom loves when you do that!

Hugs, teddy

Cupcake said...

OMGoodness, KI. You are remarkably courageous. Your mama, too! I hope you get that mouse, plus I also hope you don't. I'm too scared to think about either choice. My mama, too! We don't do well with unwelcome critters. OR leak sounds inside the wall. Best of luck with both.

Love and licks and yikes,
Cupcake

Timmy Tomcat said...

Very excellent guard work Katie. You have to be right on them when they try and sneak in. Purrs the plumbing is something simple

Catwoods said...

Oh my Katie, what exciting times with the mousie!Hopefully the water can be fixed soon.

John Bellen said...

That mouse had a close call, Katie; it sounds like you were right on his tail the whole way. And I hope your water-emergency isn't a bad one.

meowmeowmans said...

That mouse doesn't stand a chance against the Mighty Katie Isabella!

Question is.....did you get a taste of the bacon?

How dare a mouse or rat be in your house

The J-Cats said...

A mousie (or rat) under the CHINA cabinet? Oh, dear! That sounds bad. The purr-tential for mass destruction is enormous...

dellgirl said...

Oh Goodness Gracious! That silly mouse doesn't have a clue who he's messing with. Somebody better tell him (under that china cabinet) that Miss Katie Isabella "ain't one to be messed with"!

Stay Safe, Sweet Katie!

Katie, you sure live an ACTIVE life! The best kind.

Lola The Rescued Cat said...

Oh my stars!! Now that was some excitement! What would your mom do without you?

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

We can't wait to hear how the mouse thing turned out! My Kitty ignored mice ... until she was nine and then she picked them off one at a time. I figure she let them get fat and complacent and then took care of the problem (or she found one eating out of her food bowl and that was it). She always brought them to MY room and then would drop them and they'd scurry under the furniture. At the time, I wasn't amused ... but it makes a pretty great story!
