The Huntress Strikes Again

Mom’s paw is kinda wrecked due to her RA so she figured perhaps you’d like to read a post from 2014 while she is mending. I was only 7 and a busy girl.

Well, today started out the same as any other day. I was stretched out on mom’s bed when she gave me a kiss and said, “Good morning sunshine.” Wha, Wha”…I was tempted to roll over and cover my eyes up with my paw. It was so bright. Aww…the sun is back. In that case, I gotta get up. I ran to the back door and crossed my legs. I gotta go….gotta go….let me out….let me out! The back door opened and I poured into the garden and chose which plant to water today. I decided to see what was happening in the Lane. My good friend Mortimer was just finishing a nip leaf…his way of starting the day.

Happy cat…who wouldn’t be after a touch of the nip.

We decided to check out the house that was falling apart for signs of mice. Sure enough there was a fat little sucker under the half fallen down porch. In two shakes of a mouse’s tail I had him. I waved my tail to say ,”bye” at Mortimer and pranced home with my catch dangling from my mouth. I played with the mouse on our deck until I got hungry and then hollered to get in….mom was waving at me….”Ya right, hi to you too mom…now let me in!”. She finally let me in saying, “Really Shoko did you have to bring it home.” “Yes mom I did and I thought you’d be a bit happier…you can play too.” I filled up on some kibble and went out to tackle this catch of mine. It was gone!! What happened? I guess the mouse didn’t want to play anymore…

    Hmm…did you grow out of catching mice…or do you think that one you caught was so terrified he went back and told the others and they decided to move out?

    Sorry to hear Mom’s hand is sore, sending hugs and healing thoughts 😺💕xxx

      Personally, I think the whole dang clan moved out. Although Cow Kitty used to find the odd one in his compost heap. I wouldn’t go in the compost heap, that place stunk. Kali used to give me high pawed whaps for going in it so I just never went back and left any mouses for Cow Kitty.

    Hmm, so you didn’t kill it, only used the mouse as a play toy. I really did enjoy reading something from 4 years ago…there is so much to share with us folks who weren’t with you back then. Please ask your Mom to repost more of these while the RA is giving her fits.And we hope her joints feel better very soon!

      I was catching mice a few years ago but then I must have wiped them all out except for the odd one but I don’t see them as much.

      Mom thanks you for your comments about the old posts. She is starting to feel a little better with the antibiotics.

    I hope your moms hand gets better soon.

    What a worn out little mouse. I’m glad you just played with it though. Probably scared it half to death.

    Have a purrfect day. My best to your mom. ♥

      Mom thanks you for your happy thoughts and says she’ll be with it soon.

      I tried not to scare the wee guy but I guess a big Shoko face in it’s face would be scary.

      No…all the mice moved away! Cow Kitty would bring me one every now and then bur he’s not here and Juno is not a very good huntress. You should see that girl’s whiskers, they’re long enough to trip a mouse. No messy with you.

      My word…I’m packed and on my way immediately. This French mouse is causing havoc in your home. Until I get there yell at the mouse..”RAID”. Just like on TV. It’s the same in English or French. This should shock him into either dropping dead or packing to leave.

    If you want mousies you need to come over here. Since my Mighty Hunter had to leave the population has exploded.

      Sounds like your living on a farm. This is a full time job for one kitty as I’m sure Flynn can verify. You need to set up a cat shelter at your place and the mouse problem will be gone. Although, you’ll be very busy looking after all your furry guests.
