Repost Friday: The Fuzzy Terminator

Dog Talk is out tomorrow in the print version of The Star, Weekender. And here is a post originally put up on 20th January 2007. Au catches maybe 1 thing every 18 months and most of the time I can rescue and release the victim, so this is unusual stuff!
Au and his mouse
Here is Au, showing off a captured mouse. Our fuzzy terminator is currently lolling around on the sofa, cleaning his claws, and making plans for the day.

His colleague Scoop has decided one of my plant pots is the best place to snooze the morning away. As my marjoram seedlings died weeks ago, I don’t really mind – except that Scoop’s feet, tummy and chin are covered in bits of soil which he cheerfully dumps on the living room floor when he comes in! But that’s cats for you…

Have a good weekend everyone.

Peeve likes to bring me mice also. I like for him to keep them outside!

Pam said...

You are right, candles are far too predictable. My favorite idea of a "romantic getaway" is a trip to a tropical island (or Cancun) with no kids. That hasn't happened in quite a while though!
I have to stick to the pizza and mountain dew for now.

Great! One less mouse in the world.

We're very impressed with the mouse! The mice here are very intelligent and stay in the basement because there is no door to there from our house. (Our mom said she doesn't know if we would know what to do with a mouse if it came in the house - she might be right.)

We hope you're enjoying the Year of the Tiger

Oh my! I have never caught a mousie! That is a good job that you did!

Great retrospective and nice catch! We don't have any pots large enough to nap in, but it sounds like a good idea.

My Rowdies bring me prezzies too -- half dead lizards and sometimes only their tails, cockroaches, stink bugs and crickets. And no, I've never been able to rescue any of their victims. 5 cats is too much for one bug to take. Au looks so confident and so proud of himself.
