Unlike the eastern part of the country we in the PNW haven't had much of a winter, but what we have had is officially over. One of our cats brought in a live mouse for us to enjoy.
Luckily he dropped it in one of Mme. Liberal's shoes when I yelled at him and the mouse had just climbed out when I got over to it and was able to scoop it up with another shoe and take it outside. Now the culprit is giving me the evil eye because I took his most excellent toy away from him and closed the door so he can't go out again. I'm a mean cat-daddy.
