The Mystery is Solved

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Oscar was stand on my bed and looking up at the ceiling fan meowing. Now I was beginning to wonder if we had a vistor from the other side in my room Oscar had been doing that for over thirty minutes when Ken decide to see what he was up too. Ken spins the ceiling fan and a mouse came flying off there and landed right by his feet. I know that I would have cracked up if it had landed on his head A lot of jumping and hollering going on and the little mouse has escaped under my dresser where Oscar now has him cornered.

We have no clue as to how the mouse got up there either but we know now that we don't have a vistor from the other side just a pesky mouse

The mouse could have crawled through the mechanical part of the fan to get there. It's amazing the spaces they can squeeze through!

True, so true. That poor mouse wouldn't have a chance with my three house babies.

update Poor little mouse didn't make it. I moved a sweater that was in the pile of clothes to be washed and there it was I'm sorry little mouse I really am but you can't live here with us. I am guilty of murder Before I thought about it I grabbed my boot and whacked the little mouse, it was a quick death, but now I feel really, really bad.

Where was Oscar when I needed him you say? Why he was up on the bed snoozing away and having kitty dreams curled up next to Ken

Probably was easier on the mouse than if Oscar had got him, so maybe you were really being merciful! Happy Christmas

OH my, sorry to hear that little guy had to die, but I'm gonna tell ya, if that thing dropped on me while I was in bed, I would have died from fright. I hate rodents.

Poor little mousie!
We used to have mice here, and we never touched them, but when we had cats we never saw another mouse again. I think they smelled the cats and decided to move out.
Rest in mouse heaven, Mickey.

i actually like mices and i couldnt kill it.
I dont even like to kill moths or flies. you could have just put the mouse outside to be free. thats what i used to do when i saw spiders.
I felt so bad when i accidently amputated one of its legs off while catching it with a cup to throw it outside.

I used to have a cat that was a great mouser. She would never eat them though, just bring them in the house. I got very talented at catching mice, myself. You have to do it while they are still stunned from the experience. They run for the nearest shelter they see but I would get a bowl and pop it over the top of them, then slide a thin kid's book under the bowl and voila! mouse is trapped. I would take them outside and across the street to a berry patch where they stood a better chance of evading Patches. Becky

Poor little mousie - although I HATE mice, love rats though!

A couple of years ago my cat Holly loved to sleep on my Mums bed and above her bed was a chandelier and Holly used to sit there for up to an hour and just MEOW at it. Never knew to this day why? Now we just have ordinary lights and she just snoozes the day away.

Yup! When I see one of mine looking up with that kind of focus, I look for the small grey person with the long tail.

We've had 'em on top of the dart board -- good thing for the mouse that there's a massive unstable pile of boxes in front of it, or it would have been an easy climb up the carpeted back board for any of the cats. We've had 'em on top of the window above the front door -- twelve feet up. I tried to catch that one and he lost his footing and fell into harm's way, but hit the floor running -- not sure whether they caught him or not. Mostly ours don't eat them, but we have found the odd head. I try to rescue them if they're still alive, and take them up the lane to a neighbour's woodpile, to recover in peace. Otherwise, it's the garbage.

We used to have mice in the house, and recently I thought there was one or more in the space between the upstairs floor and the downstairs ceiling, but I haven't heard that activity for a while. Fawn's the hunter and brings them in to play with.

That little guy falling from the ceiling fan would have been quite the shock!

Ben, the two of us need look no more
We both found what we were looking for
They don't see you as I do
I wish they would try to
Cause then my friend they'd see
You've got a friend in me
