That’s Not My Idea of a Present, MeMe

15 Sep

FurryMurray I hate spiders in the house. I can handle the little ones, ones smaller than a ten pence piece, but anything bigger and I get the vacuum out.

But do you know what I really hate in my house?

Dead mice.

Thank you, MeMe, I do appreciate the, uh…gesture, but mice are not on the menu in this house. I don’t mind if you leave them on the door step, I can handle that. But I don’t like it when you bring them into the kitchen and hide them; they’re not my idea of a nice surprise. And they smell. Bad.

This has been a major drawback of the cat flap.

I’m not pleased.

    Eww! Although I’d take a dead mouse cat present over the odorous “found a dead thing and rolled in it” presents from my dogs!

    I know all about that one, too! When I visit my family in the Ohio, my mum’s dog is constantly doing that and I’ve had the pleasure of washing her after one of her dead chipmunk-marinades. Bleaugh!

    Oh no! I have a hard enough time with the mice on the doorstep (which happens about every other day here).
