Mousie in the Housie
We dramatically caught one (hopefully the) of the mousies in our housie last night. We were in the dining room putting together a puzzle, when we heard noises from the kitchen. Since "noises" is code word for "dogs getting into trouble," we yelled at the dogs. Who promptly looked up from where they were sleeping quietly on the couches in the living room.
When the noises resumed, tismo sneaked into the kitchen and threw open the cupboard door (we know the mousies access this cupboard because all of our plastic bagged food items have ended up with little chew holes in them). Sure enough, little mousie had gotten himself trapped on the second shelf with no where to run. I grabbed a container we had gotten with take out chinese (one of the larger plastic soup containers), while tismo played hide & seek with mousie.
In a daring attempt to evade capture mousie leaped forward...right into the container. He nearly escaped while we tried to get the lid on, but ultimately he was sealed in. Cute little bugger, too. Tismo took him for a little drive to a nearby park for relocation, so we waved to him this morning on our way to work.
