Mouse V Chicken

Update on the mouse.

Millie caught the mouse this morning in the kitchen and I picked them both up and back into the small toilet room they went. Without the rubbish bin this time in with them both.

About an hour later it was all over. Mouse's batteries had gone flat and it was just laying there. Alive. Sadly Millie had lost all interest.

So the poor mouse was given a new cat to finish it off. Harley (Pat's Siamese) who promptly cried like a girl to come out of the room.

Mouse was then collected and taken out for the chooks to finish off.

Food V Sleep

I often think our cats live the life of Riley. All they do is eat, sleep and crap. Oh they are good for cuddling, more so in the winter months. Oh and they are good company.

They tend to like sleeping against our legs and feet at night. At times I'll hear a clunk as a cat falls off the bed if we move our legs against them. I used to feel guilty about this, but now I think after years of pampering to the fur kids, its my turn to be comfy at night.

This morning Millie did earn her board for the coming week. She caught what I believe to be the very first mouse in our house. She had the baby mouse cornered in the laundry tub.

She actually caught it, so both were thrown into the toilet room and the door firmly shut. After the squeaking and banging from the small room went quiet I had a peek in.

Big mistake. eek Little mouse was cowering behind the little bin in the little room with the big cat just staring at it. I moved the bin and the little mouse ran out between my big feet with Millie hot after it.

But not fast enough and the mouse made it safely under the washing machine. On and off all day Millie has visited the area, sat and just watched. Waiting for her battery free friend to come out and play again.

Now for someone who missed all of this morning's action was my white Russian cat Rebel. Check the lazy bugger out. Lucky he's cute and is just such a softy for a tomcat.

While Rebel slept away his day I was busy cleaning our house and also I harvested more zucchinis and also some red capsicums.

Another zucchini slice for the freezer and the capsicums will be used in tomorrow night's meal.

I'm so glad I am able to go about my day without disturbing the sleeping fur kids. On that note I'm just about to turf them off the bed and put freshly washed sheets back onto the bed.

Okay you furry, free loaders...up & atom.

Until next time....hoo roo

Rain & Zucchinis

I might not have a lot growing in the vegie garden, but one plant that never lets me down is my zucchini plants.

For the people who don't follow my sewing blog, Pat was admitted to hospital almost a fortnight ago and spent 5 days in hospital.

Not much time for me at home, but heaps of time for the zucchini vegies to grow. I actually took some zucchinis in for the nurses, so they wouldn't be wasted. Organic vegies were snapped up with their thanks.

More still growing and this means more slices made for the freezer., more for a side vegie.

Over the weekend we had 19 mm of rain. It was just wonderful to hear the rain fall on our rumpus room as it tin roof.

This means the lawn will kick on and the weeds will grow.

Having my hands full at home at the moment, we cheated with mowing the lawns this time. We borrowed Amy & Ben's lawn mower.

Said to Pat I want one. lol Oh it was so much fun, hooning around the backyard. I became a real petrol head. So much quicker than our push one. But as I love the environment so much, we'll stick to the push one.

Interesting thing was the ducks and chooks have never heard a motor run mower in our yard.

Until next time....hoo roo
