Oh dear, Susanne. That's such a funny story :lol: :lol: When I lived with cats, they would often bring live 'presents' into the house. I used to trap them and take them for a nice car ride to live in Hamsterley Forest about 5 miles away but one dear little thing took up residence in the drawer under the draining board and was there for months. It eventually succumbed to the temptation of a piece of chocolate biscuit but it taught me to keep all food in mouseproof containers and it's become a habit.

Hubby and the girls thought it was hilarious. The fact that I practically had steam coming out of my ears only made it funnier to them. We knew we likely had seasonal house guests, but that was the first time any food had been touched. Things escalated from there until we found a solution. Looking back, I can see a direct correlation between our kitty's old age/loss of hearing and the increased activities of the house guests. :roll:

Have I told the story about the racing pigeon? It's possible i have.....and the stoat? Two cats studying the ceiling and polishing their claws on their lapels and both denying any knowledge of a dead stoat posed fetchingly just inside the kitchen door. Stoats really pong too :mrgreen:

I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

Love both of those! My mom used to have a squirrel that would "knock" on her sliding glass door because she would give him walnuts.

Superb!
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.
