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) 😀

Sometimes our lizards and birdies get a little bit dead. We are a teeny bit jealous of you as we have never seen a real mousie. But we think it looks like a small squirrel so we can understand that they would be great sport!
nice job meerkat
Sometimes my lizards get a little bit dead, too. I think this means they are poorly constructed and would have gotten deaded anyway. I never saw a real live mousie before. I am impressed!
Great Work Meerkat!!
I never get to play with mousies, but get bugs and crickets sometimes…they’re fun til they stop running and lay there twitching for a little while then get a little bit dead…I’d love to have a real mousie to play bunnykicking with!! Mommie has a fake mousie hanging in out tent, it just gets in my way though when I’m trying to hide and ambush Betty and Binky!!
Way to go Meerkat! I haven’t seen a mousie in ages, I wonder if I would still remember what to do with a real one!
