Unwelcome guest

No, actually, I am not okay.

I live in an old house in the middle of the woods. I am used to the occasional mouse. I can usually deal: I leave traps in a few of their favorite spots; I'm careful in the kitchen and make sure I wash anything I'm unsure of before using. I don't like it, but I deal.

Tonight was different. Tonight Dewey found his first mouse. But he didn't kill it. (That I could have dealt with.) It got away. And I'm not sure where it went. Or how hurt it was. I am hoping against hope that it wasn't very hurt, and got outside. Or that if it did die somewhere, I find it before too long. I keep thinking I see it out of the corner of my eye. I'm not sure I'll be able to sleep. The kitten is still pretty freaked out, too.

I must say that it's at times like this that I'd give almost anything to have Defulct back... or, honestly, just someone else in the house. I like living alone, much of the time. Except when I really really don't.

I know what you mean about living alone. I've been single now for three years and it does take some getting used to. The mouse thing would have me freaked out. I'm guessing it took off and is outside somewhere nursing his/her wounds! Try not to think about it!

Ugh. I'm with you. Just remember, he's just a scared little guy, and way more scared of you than anything else (except kitty). Let's hope he got out.

Hopefully you had a very uneventful night!!

Ick. I hope it made it back outside too.

Poor Dewey...he didn't know what to do. Hopefully the mouse got out, but keep in mind that Dewey will figure out what to do with them eventually.
