Foolin Mousies...

Ayla:  There are tricks ta catchin the house-mousies!  Ya can just pounce them, but thats too easy.  Ta do it right takes stealth.

Fer example, when ya see one ya wanna catch, never let it know ya are watchin it.  Pertend ya are asleep...

But know ezactly where it is!  Thats impawtant... 

Cuz when it thinks ya are asleep an thinking of fevvers, reach out suddenly an GRAB it!
 Yeah, thats the way ta surprise the house-mousies...

IZA:    MOL!  I have my own way.  I guard them like a dragon on its pile of gold.  Keep them inna box right close ta ya, an they will allus be there fer the grabbin...
An when Im readdy ta play, I just push the box over on the floor and THERE THEY ALL ARE!

I like the dragon on a pile of gold analogy. When Ichiro tries to steal my toys I shall breathe fire!

My Sister Zoe is that way, I swear she knows if even one toy is out of place!

Love the post and photos; you guys are both fun, silly girls!...We love our mousies too and Mommy thinks it is funny how we stalk them and hide behind things before the pounce...kisses, sweet friends...Calle, Halle, Sukki

That's two very good ways to fool those mousies!!

We are not too good with our mousies...they get away under the Catio screens. Mommy goes around once a week or so and gathers them up for us, and then they escape all over again!

You know what? My Human has MOUSES in her office at work (she thinks that's because the students leave food in their lockers in the hallway outside her office.) They had to have an "ex-ter-min-a-tor" come and he put traps and it caught one mousie. The Human felt kinda bad for it, but she really doesn't want to share her office either. She should bring ME to school! Ha ha ha

Our mousies, and a bunch of other things like them, are in a box - but the box has a lid and a latch! Now, that is what I call totally unfair! They are not supposed to be rationed... I don't see anything about a mousie shortage anywhere.

We think both strategies are cool! We LOVE to tip the basket of toys over and then scatter them throughout the entire house as fast as possible so that we can hunt and pounce them.

Excellent huntin' techniques here.
I bet no mousies escape from either of you!
