A Millie and the Mouse Story

It's been kinda quiet here at chez Millie during the day. Most of October was grey and rainy. Today it's sunny, so I've decided to nap in my kitty condo in the studio.

 Mom wanted me pose, but seriously?

I have a great story to tell you, but there aren't any pictures. Remember I said Mom hired some "pest" guys to keep the mice out of the house? Well it kinda works, but some still manage to get inside under the kitchen sink. Mom set up a trap and we have caught a couple, but the other night Mom was watching TV and I was napping nearby when we heard the trap go off.

Now I am no dummy. (I mean, I'm a CAT!) I went running to the cabinet, and got the door open. There was lots of rattling, and it turned out the mouse had got a foot caught. I pulled it out, trap and all and ran into the other room. Mom followed. I put the mouse down, and he got away. I merely went over and picked him up again. Mom got a little bit worked up. I tried to tell her everything was OK, but the mouse got loose and ran behind the desk.

Mom got really pissed and she yelled at me! Can you imagine? She told me it was bad enough she could hear some mice under the kitchen sink, but now she had one running loose in the house and she was ANGRY! She went on and on and I just let it go in one ear and out the other because, Hell-Oh! I'm a CAT!

She went to bed, but not before reminding me to Do Your Job! (Dunno where she got THAT from.)


The next morning she got up and got my food dish and refilled it, and as she walked toward the Office where my food tray lives, she looked over and saw the little mouse I had deaded overnight.

I have to give it to her. She looked right at me and apologized!


She said she was sorry for yelling at me and she would never doubt me again.

I just looked at her.

However, I have been a good share of treats every day.

I Work At Home

Mom just added the binding on this big quilt. She put in on this red chair and went to do something else, but I knew this quilt needed some of my furs.

What better way to do that than to take a bath?

In other news, Mom decided to get me some help in keeping mice outside our house. She hired an ex-term-inator to come over and make sure the mices and mousies stay away. Some dude came over and left some bait traps all over inside the house, left a couple of spiffy traps outside and then sprayed some stuff outside. Mom says I should not be insulted but the ex-term-inators can get to the mices and mousies in places neither of us can reach.

I'm good with that.  Now it's time for me to take a nap on this nice comfy quilt.

It was really, really, really HOT yesterday.

Mom was very surprised to find me hanging out on the front porch instead of napping in the air-colditioned house.

What can I say? Warm air, nifty smells, bird and chipmunk TV? Why would I want to be anywhere else?

Checking In

Hello kits and cats!

It's Spring in not-quite-sunny New Hampster. Mom has been to the big box hardware stores and bought dirt and herbies, which she will be planting when it isn't raining outside. Me? I keep finding new quilts that need my Quality Assurance checks and need an even distribution of my furs.

I've been spending a lot of time on the front porch watching the birds and everything else. It isn't quite warm enough to leave the window to the porch open all the time, but Mom has moved a kitty hammock out there for me for the good days.

I hope you are enjoying your Springtime!

Millie Performs Quality Assurance

Hey kits and cats, just checking in.

I am fine! The weather is getting warmer, the snow is almost gone and Mom lets me out on the porch every day now. Sometimes I can stay out there for half an hour!

But you know it's not all fun and games, I have to do the Quality Assurance checks on all her quilts, and omicat, has she been prolific this past year. I'm pretty sure I've had to do these checks on a dozen quilts! This particular one is the second one this week! It's a good thing I'm an expert.

It's a tough job, but somecat has to do it.

Beating the Cold!

Ha ha ha!

Lookit me! I am beating the cold of New Hampster! I am really and truly at the famous Opera House in Sydney Australia!

 Yup, I am really here! Up close and personal! 

You can't get more up close and personal than THIS!

OF COURSE I am with my best buddy Megan!

I told Megan that the next time I come, I'm going to bring my Mom, because she has always wanted to see the famous Sydney Opera House too.

Thank you Megan (and Michael).

Morning Snow

It snowed late yesterday so when I woke up this morning everything had a pretty white coating of snow. Naturally I had to go out on the porch to see for myself.

I am fine, just not blogging so much, so don't worry about me. I'm not going anywhere.

Well, maybe back into the house. It's below freezing out here.

Millie the Nurse

Mom woke up yesterday and today with tummy trouble. It was nasty. She ended up sacked out on the couch covered up with a quilt,

and naturally I decided to nap on top of her to help her get better.

But I'm pretty sure this wasn't helping.

Formerly Feral Friday

Even if it's 9 PM, I still want to check out what's happening outside.

Even if it is 40 degrees F.

Formerly Feral Friday

I am feeling much better. I have been eating everything in my food dish, and I even got treats last night. I am sleeping well and I haven't been bumping into things. I'm still not quite at 100 per cent but I'm much better. I even meowed at Mom this morning, but softly. My meow-er is still a little stiff and sore.

Scritches, of course, are always welcome.

My V-e-t Visit

My Mom stuck me into the crate yesterday and brought me to the v-e-t.  I didn't even get to have breakfast first!

I stayed there all day.  It was really weird. I stayed in my crate a lot of the time, but not all of it. I got stabbed and my leg got shaved as you can see and they took some of my blood. Then they stabbed me again, and everything got real fuzzy after that.

When I woke up I felt really dizzy and wobbly and my mouth felt funny. They took three of my teeths. The v-e-t says they were bad, rotten and ginny something. The v-e-t says I will feel better tomorrow after I catch up on my sleeps.

In the meantime, I'm so wobbly, I've been napping in the big bathroom next to Mom and she brought my litter box over so I wouldn't have to go far if I needed to use it. My foods are close by, but I'm not feeling all that hot.

I need a nice quiet nap.
