Last night mayhen broke loose in the kitchen! Everything happened all at once! The phone rang, a tele marketer, at the same time one of the kittens jumped onto the kitchen bench stalking a piece of chicken left over from tea, and moving to shoo Buddy off the bench I caught a glimpse of a small grey creature scampering along the kitchen wall! A mouse! I hung up - somewhat abruptly - pushed the kitten off the bench, and yelled 'MOUSE" thinking as you do that having 2 kittens in the kitchen the mouse wouldn't stand a chance! (and of course I kinda expected them to know what the word 'mouse' meant!) WRONG! Shelby, who was trying to sleep amongst all this mayhem leaped from her basket and slid across the floor, into the path of the mouse. She missed it first time, but was not going to let that little sucker get the best of her! Amid hoots of laughter and much cheering back and forth the mouse ran, back and forward Shelby slid until she had it cornered - then with one gigantic snuffle she sucked it up and it was gone!!!! OMG! Kittens couldn't believe it! We couldn't believe it!
Shelby - my hero!!
