Remember back a few weeks ago when Stitch brought a friend home to play? (If you wish to refresh your memory, click HERE.) Well, I'm
happy able to say that he/she/it is alive and doing well--thriving, in fact.
Since that evening, Stitch has lost all interest but Spike has remained on the alert. We've noticed now and then that she'll sit in the kitchen, staring intently at one of the cabinets, the dishwasher, the stove, or the refrigerator for quite a long time. Then, a few days ago, we found mouse droppings on the floor of the cabinet under the kitchen sink, so Hubby went out and bought two traps.
No luck so far. But this morning, Hubby found Spike staring at the refrigerator again, and a little bit of movement caught his attention. I was brushing my teeth when he called me, but I quickly grabbed my camera--because, of course, as a true blogger, DOCUMENTING the event took priority over CATCHING the little guy. (Look away if you're bothered by the sight of mice.)
See it there in the corner? I wasn't sure if the photo would turn out, so I got up on a chair and snapped another.
Cute, eh? Before we could catch it, it jumped down behind the refrigerator. Hubby found that one of his traps under the sink had been sprung, so he re-peanut buttered it and moved it next to the refrigerator. I sure hope we can catch this guy soon! In the meantime, Spike is standing guard. Stitch--not so much. He's probably out looking for more friends.
