Mice in my bedroom! They would destroy my home. I hit one; it shivered and started running. It ran outside through a hole in the shingles.

  1. Oh Sonia, ‘mice in the bedroom!’ That could be disastrous. But the poor mouse, she hit it?
    Let’s run them all out and then close the hole in the shingles. 🙂

  2. NOT the kind of pitter-patter of little feet running around the house you had in mind, eh? (I’d lend you one of my kit-kats, but heck, are they are losers. When it comes to catching “snacks,” they tend to make friends instead, and rather opt to play with their “food”!)

  3. I’m trying to decide which is creepier- a ghost in the house or mice in the bed! That house needs to be razed.

  4. She’s as ineffective a mouser as my two old lady cats would be. LOL Fortunately, we don’t have a mouse problem (although my dog brought me a dead–ugh!–mole from the backyard). I like your different take on the photo. Nice!

Say something and make my day!
