yesterday panda bear and i did not greet mommy and daddy when they got home from “work”.  usually all three of us furry bambinos meet mommy and daddy when they come in the front door, but not yesterday.

at first mommy was worried that something had happened to panda bear and me.  but then even with the lights off mommy could see that panda bear and i were on a mission.  (cue the mission impossible music)

mouse patrol, part deux!!

so daddy turned on the lights in the fambly room.  i had the mousie in my mouth.  next, i bunnykicked the mousie, threw the mousie across the room, and grabbed it again for more bunnykicking and throwing.  panda bear watched my technique closely.

i guess i was a little too rough with all the games i was playing with the mousie.  by the time mommy and daddy got home, the mousie was a little bit dead.  sorry mousie!

mommy spoke to gramma and grampa today on the talkie thingy.  she told them that millie’s mom is done making gramma’s quilt and will be mailing it soon.  mommy also told gramma and grampa the story about the mousie.  grampa said it was a case of “the mousie being at the wrong place at the wrong time”.

mommy and daddy feel very sorry for the mousie.  normally mommy and daddy catch the mousies and release them outdoors.  mommy refers to the mousies as “the lenten mice” because the mousies tend to come inside the house during lent.  probably because there is usually snow on the ground and they are looking for food.

now mommy and daddy are calling me “killer”.

who, me?  (wide-eyed innocent look)  😀

Today we were listening to Daddy’s radio show, and he played some song called “Moon River” from some movie called “Breakfast At Tiffany’s”.  Mommy says it’s a movie that stars a cat named Cat, which makes it sound like a good movie in my book.  Daddy was playing songs that some guy named Oscar gave awards to for “best song from a movie”, because Oscar has another show on teevee tonight. On Daddy’s radio show, Daddy normally plays songs from musicals from Broadway and London. Occasionally he plays songs from movies.

I guess Mommy knew to expect the “Moon River” song, so when it came on, she grabbed me, picked me up, and started to slow dance with me. Grrrrrrr. While I like Mommy very much, and I might go so far as to say that I love Mommy, I do NOT like to dance with Mommy. I wriggled free and jumped to the top of the cat perch. I stretched out in the sunbeam. Sigh.

Later Daddy told me that Mommy used to waltz with Mohawk to “Moon River”. Poor Mohawk. Luckily I made my escape before she started waltzing!

Mommy talked to Gramma and Grampa on the talkie thingy last night. Gramma and Grampa said that Gramma’s Quilt had arrived in the mail yesterday afternoon. If you read Darling Millie’s blog, then you would have seen the quilt in progress while Millie’s Mom Lynne made it.

“The quilt is GORGEOUS!” is how Gramma described it. Grampa also said that the quilt is really beautiful.

“EXQUISITE!” is the other big word that Gramma used to describe her quilt.

Mommy says that means that Gramma is very happy. “Exquisite” is Gramma’s highest complment. 🙂 We are glad that she is happy with her quilt.

Thanks, “Mom Lynne”!!!

… There is a sign of spring …

Snow view out the front door

… Somewhere My Love …

Snow on back railing

… There are birds that sing …

Panda Bear playing in the snow!

… But there is no sign of spring here in Northeast Ohio!

Meerkat sniffs the snow!

OK. The picture of the kitty on the wall with all the little blocks says that today is March 1st. We still have lots and lots of snow here! Mommy says that the snow the other day reminded her of some guy named Dr. Zhivago. I don’t get humans sometimes. Why would snow make her think of a V-E-T?

A few days ago, Mommy opened the back door to throw peace offerings to the big fat beaver squirrels, and to the tiny little snowbirds, and to the bluejays. Mmmmm, blue jays, now I’m getting hungry just telling you this story. Anyway, I got to sniff and eat and play in the snow a little bit. Then Mommy picked me up by the scruff of my neck and hauled me back inside.

Next, Meerkat got to sniff and eat and play in the snow for a little while, and then Mommy grabbed her by the scruff of the neck and hauled her back inside too.

We had a great time! Mommy said that the snow was too cold and too deep for us to play in, but it sure was fun while it lasted!! 🙂

Can you believe it? Last week The Furry Bambinos had the great fortune of getting to hunt three mousies in the same night!!

It all started after dinner. We could tell that there was a mousie in the basement, so we surrounded it, and I brought it upstairs to the fambly room where we like to play with them.

Panda Bear pins down the mouse!

We roughed the mousie up a little bit before Mom and Dad took the mousie away from us. They released it out the back door.

Within 5 minutes, Meerkat had caught a second mousie and ran upstairs from the basement at top speed. She took the mousie into the fambly room, where we proceeded to play with it. We roughed the second mousie up, too.

“Another mouse?” Dad exclaimed. “Do you think it’s the same one we just put outside? He looks kind of sluggish.”

“Who knows?” Mom answered. “Maybe we should start tagging them.”

Mom and Dad took the second mousie away from us, capturing it in the mousie catcher.

They released it out the back door.

Then, the three of us Furry Bambinos headed to the basement where we surrounded the third mousie. This one took a little longer to ferret out from its hidey spot under one of the big white machines. I caught it, and all three of us raced back upstairs to the fambly room for the playing.

Panda Bear tags the mouse!

Mom and Dad took the third mousie away from us. This one was real easy for them to catch, because he wasn’t running very much. This time, they released it out the front door.

Mom and Dad were wondering if we had three dumb mice, or the same really really STUPID mousie.

The Furry Bambinos will never tell! 🙂
