Ringo and the mice

 Sorry we haven't posted in a while. Google decided to lock us out of our account when we wanted to change our password!

Ringo has been a busy kitty the past few days. He has surprised us by catching three mice in the house (likely the basement). Two of the mice, sadly, were already dead but the third one was still alive so Jim took it outside for release.

Oddly, Ringo had no interest in eating his catch, only to play with them. In fact, one of the dead mice was very wet from his licking it.

We debated showing you a photo with one of the mice. . .and ultimately, we won't share a photo. We know it might upset some people. While I'm not crazy about the dead mice, I also know a) they are carnivores and b) it's instinct to hunt. 

I've lived here 19 years and in that time, no cat has ever caught a mouse.  Ringo is on the hunt now and I'm sure he won't stop until the house is free from critters!

Thrifty Thursday: Cat pin and book



 I found a metal cat pin at a local thrift store recently. It was large but quite lightweight.


It is very similar in design to another pin I've had for years, right down to the clasp and glue on the back. Unfortunately, neither pin has a marking/signature.


I also found a cozy mystery. I'm hoping, based on the cover, that cats will be in the story.

The beloved Halloween blanket is back!

 Sadie: Last year, Mom bought this great Halloween blanket from Walmart, but then she put it away. It was so soft and warm! But now it's back, hooray!

Playing under the futon

 Sadie sneaked into the room while I was working to play with the catnip tomato that was under the futon.
