Emily the Mouseketeer

This morning I left the house in a hurry, forgetting that I'd left a mouse for Matilda the Snake defrosting on a kitchen counter. Later in the day I received this text from my son:
"Puppy was whining at dead mouse. I moved mouse to center of counter. A few minutes later crying stops. I check. Mouse is gone."

I guarantee the mouse did not walk away on its own steam. A search of the area revealed no clues.

Emily's new nickname is "Mouse-Breath."

Innocent as the day is long?


  1. Hmm. The circumstantial evidence is incredibly strong. Care to comment, Miss Emily? :)

  2. Way to go, Emily! Mousies are such fun to catch and play with and slobber all over!

    Love ya lots♥

  3. Plead the 5th Emily they can't get you on circumstanial evidence. Hold strong girl. You were whining because you were concerned about the mouse on the counter.

  4. BOL!!! Well shoot gurl, your Moms should have known our mouse drive is very HIGH!!! We will do anythings to get em'!! I say it's her fault, and you just smile purty and say...'yeah, so??" . Good work! Nows, let's make a plan for the next time there is a sirloin defrostin' on the counter.....☺

  5. Great hunting. We are proud of you for finding the mouse!
