Rufus, I second your motion. There are three of us in this house, and only a very, very occasional live mouse. When one does get in here, Tailer always catches it and kills it before either one of us have a chance!! We definitely need to get our owners to supply more live mice!
On another note, I am sad to report that I lost my battle on Saturday morning. Even though I deleted the voice message, Meowmy remembered the vet appointment. I hid as far as I could under the bed, and refused to come out. I even stayed there when Meowmy nudged me with a stick and when she shook a plastic bag under the bed. It was no use, though...she got Pawpa to come and move the bed.
We had to wait a very, very long time at the vet. I think they torture dogs the dogs that come there, too, because I could hear them all barking. They gave me a shot and made me pee and poked me to get blood. It was awful. I didn't speak to Meowmy until 3:00 this morning. She was so sad, I just had to forgive her. I nudged her awake to tell her so. I could tell she slept much more peacefully afterwards.
