The nature of nature

Pickle's Mouse

Found in my ancient sketchbook

My cat did what cats do
inexorable nature
recorded for posterity

  1. I saw a wee one last summer in the stairs. It was so sweet. Then I heard one in my air ducts. Not so sweet. We trapped it and took it outside. Yesterday I saw a dead one in the middle of the yard. My son thought maybe the gopher snake had done it’s job. Who knows. I would have thought a snake would eat it. Three mice in a week. Hmmmm.

    Pickles was just showing love.
    I’m going to have to try other verses with that Minute formula.
    That was indeed interesting.

    I opened the laundry room door this morning to find one looking just like that. One of my cats must have killed it and left it in the garden and then one of my dogs bought it into the house just in case I missed out on the fun. The mice don’t upset me so much as the birds they sometimes get.

    That made me sad. I remember putting my foot into my riding boots only to find a dead mouse in the bottom – must have been mauled by Pickle and then crawled away to die. Sally
