A mouse in the apple tree ! This winter we decided to put a tallow ball for the birds. We have never put anything for the birds for the wintertime because all our other cats were able to stay in the backyard all year round. The backyard is fenced and they got used to stay there from an very young age. I wonder whether we will ever be able to let Jacky stay there by himself ! He’s so different from all the others. We’ll see in the spring.
Today Jacky was watching the birds as usually. Suddenly he made a lot’s of sounds. Loudly telling there’s something he has never seen before. I went to have a look. I said, nope, nothing there. No birds. Just a dry leaf. He said, no, no look closer. Eeek, you are right. There’s A MOUSE ! Where’s my camera. I had to give it try even if I know the pictures shot though the window hardly ever turn out well. Neither did these but, look how much the little mouse ate from the ball in a short time. Guess what. There’s not going to be anymore tallow balls in our apple tree. I hope the mouse will disappear, vanish, move away from here when he finds out there will nothing for him to eat. Or that some of the cats, I see around in the neighborhood, will fix the problem for me. Or that Jacky will catch him in the spring. The other cats we have had used to catch and bring them in. Which of course made me to loudly scream: take it out, take it out ! Heh-heh. I know I’m a wimp 😀
lovely pictures, but “eeek!” from me, too! 😀 one of my husband’s cousins has the same thing with her cats, they always give her some ‘gifts’ (in the form of dead mice) in the summer. which was good for her plants, but she also screamed to take them out! LOL.
LOL ! Can you believe I felt so sorry for him when he had had all the tallow so we put one more tallow ball out there 😦 🙂 I hope he will leave us in the spring 😀
you’re too kind! 😀 LOL. maybe in spring then, thumbs up that he will leave!
The pictures are really nice! I love mice! 😉
Thank you tarnegolita. He is back up in the tree several times a day. So little by little I have come to think he is kind of cute 😀
