Well, The Boys Caught Another Mouse

I thought there was one about, because for the last couple of days they have been staring intently under the stove, and under the dishwasher. And this morning as I was going out to do some whacking back of bushes, they were staring intently under the bookcase in the sun room. When I came back in, the cats were nowhere to be seen.

When I called and rattled some dry food in their dish they came running up the basement stairs with what I thought was one of their toys. On closer inspection, it turned out to be the real thing, intact but quite deceased.

I suppose that if we do have mice, it's just as well that the cats should catch them. I just wish the mice would wise up and move out.

On a happier note, I did finish the little shrug. It softened a bit on washing, but still isn't merino. Since I want it to wear over turtlenecks in the winter, that isn't really a problem.

The colours are beautiful!
I hear mice don't like Irish Spring soap...chop it up and place around. There's lots of home remedies like that in internet land :)

Your shrug is adorable!

Regarding the mice, ew... Only had one once, when I was living alone in an apartment in Fort Wayne IN, and one of my friends set a trap, caught the mouse within five minutes, and then disposed of it (I don't know how...and don't want to know how...)

The shrug looks good, sorry about the mouse, for some reason they never seem to take a hint!
