The Mom speaks:
Look at those two little angels. They are just sitting outside watching the world go by. Who would know that such mischievous deeds lie in their future?
I am currently between jobs so I have more time to spend at home with the boys. They really enjoy having Mom around ‘cuz it usually means they can spend more time outside. On the nice days I have enjoyed the freedom of going out with a book while the boys explore.
Remember when Shakespeare was naughty and tried to bribe me with that field mouse? First of all, let me explain that since his night of escape he has been very good and hasn’t even tried to get out of the yard again. He’s happy being here with his toys and treats.
It seems Hemingway thought I was really upset with Shakespeare so this week he decided he should do something nice for Mom. You guessed it! He came waltzing in with a field mouse in his mouth. I tried to get it away from him and the stupid mouse went behind some furniture. Hemingway stayed on guard while I went to get some “mouse mazes” to capture the guy. I should have known that Hemingway would eventually get him again and he did. I chased Hemingway round the house trying to convince him to go outside. He didn’t understand what I was doing and thought all the running was fun and good exercise for me. Of course Shakespeare wanted in on it as well. I finally got Hemingway outside with his prize. Shakespeare stayed inside with me running from window to window so he could check up on Hemingway. It took a while, but eventually Hemingway came up to the back door. I was going to let him in, but then I noticed the field mouse in his mouth. I don’t know if it was the same one or not but this time it wasn’t moving. I looked at Hemingway and said, “There’s no way you are bringing that into the house.” He just looked at me and dropped it on the deck. My gift for the day!!
I need to get another job soon. I don’t like “MOUSE BREATH”!!!!

This made our Mum laugh as one of her before cats used to go hunting and bring her mice back and if she was sitting down he would drop them in her lap!

We still don’t understand why you humans are so fussy about gifts. 😉
Gasp! Oh, no, we’re going to interview you for Mousebreath. You have to like mousebreath. Not liking a mouse in the house is okay, though. 🙂
We like mouse breath but Mom doesn’t. She’s a human……’nuff said. 🙂
I am sure you don’t like mousebreath, but I am sure Hemingway was very proud. Good luck on the job search.
Thanks for stopping by to chat with us. We told Mom she doesn’t have to get a job but then she asked us how much we like our food and treats. Now we’re looking on the puter for jobs for her, too!
Aw, Hemingway must have been so disappointed that you rejected his nice gift! I would have happily and gratefully accepted it – and eaten it too!
Summer, humans are just different. 😉
OMC…we have been bringing our mom presents as well. We think Mauricio is providing them for us. Yesterday Dad chased Calista Jo all over the house to get the dead bird from her. The day before Mom chased Lisbeth who had a dead bird. The day before that she found a dead bat on the threshold outside the kitchen door. As none of us had been outside since the day before she blamed it on the raccoon that shows up every night. Thank COD. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
Aren’t humans funny when they’re chasing us???? 🙂
Oh dear. Maybe they are trying to teach you to hunt and fend for yourself. Whee have been teaching our hoomans to forage by hiding in large piles of hay!

Our human isn’t paying attention. 🙂
The boys are being so sweet bringing you snacks! They do look quite handsome lounging on the catio!
They love being out there and usually are really good. Now that it’s getting cooler, the field mice want to find some warm bungalows. The boys don’t want them in here so I guess that’s a good thing. However, they really don’t have to bring them to me. 😉
I believe your human has a lot in common with this human. http://thehopefulherbalist.wordpress.com/2014/09/10/a-mouse-tale/
You two are such fluffy moggies 🙂 cute
Thanks!!! Mom likes our fluffiness.
