Make Do Mouse


Apparently, during their night time adventures, if there
aren't any real mice to catch, the cats
have taken to using a jalapeno from the garden!

  I guess in the moonlight, it could make do for a mouse! ha.

    1. First thing in the morning, I did, too! haha. Had to take a closer look and then laughed.
      I've seen plenty of real ones, though.

    1. We never know what we're going to find on any given morning. Never a dull moment! I'm actually glad it wasn't really a mouse...

    1. yep...had plenty of those
      and they do cause woes
      although I thank them for killing them
      so I don't have to dwell with them.

    2. really, really bad cheat rhyme.
      Is that some kind of crime? ha.

      Delete
    3. Yes such a cheat
      Unforgivable at your street
      And better to have them dead
      Then inside crawling around in your bed

  17. It does look like a mouse at first glance!

    Wonder if they like the taste. My sister had a cat that used to like jalapeno cheese dip.

    1. Not sure if they tasted it, but it looked like it had been batted around quite a bit!

    1. It did me bright and early in the morning with out my contacts in! haha.

  19. I would have been fooled, too! But much better anyway than finding bits and pices of real mice. My cat Lilly usually bites of their heads and leaves them on the floor. One morning I found four little heads in a neat row on the conservatory floor...
    Enjoy your weekend

    1. hahaha...oh, my! They all have their own style, don't they? My dear old Teddy just played with them until they didn't move anymore and then proudly displayed them at the back door. Our Marmalade swallows them whole...a little gross, but at least there isn't any mess left to clean up. haha.
      One thing that is left here are squirrel tails. And they become a favorite toy since they seem to wiggle and move when touched. ha.

  20. Hi Betsy .. fooled yes - bet they're breathing fire right now ... though it looks like one brief tongue touch was enough to send them off find other toys! Cheers Hilary

    1. Yeah, they only did it once and it lay there a couple of days. Nobody wanted that toy anymore. ha.
