Mouse


Mouse, originally uploaded by Bearded Jon.

A cat has moved in to the apartment below my office. This makes 2 dogs, 1 cat and 4 people living in a two bedroom basement. The cat's name is Boo or something easily as ridiculous that you would name a mostly black cat with white boots and a white stripe on it's nose. The cat likes to hang out outside and loiter on the front stop in the afternoons. When someone, anyone, goes out to check the mail the cat will come in, wander around the various rooms of the office, rub up against anything and everything and anyone. It lets me pet it without getting all freaked out which amazes me a little, because I'm a dog person and I'm usually too rough for cats, and amuses me. The cat too I think. I think he actually likes me.

He left me this present out the back door, which most people think is the front door, of the office. I know he left it for me because I found it in the middle of the gravel and grass patch where I park my truck right about directly below where my butt is on the seat when driving.

Millie lives downstairs and is the den mother of the extended family in the basement. She is deathly afraid of mice, dead or alive. I think she even squirmed when I told her I found this dead one.

And what of the mouse. It's been there since Monday, at least that is when I noticed it, at rest on it's back reaching for heaven, soaking up rain in the evening, dew in the morning and resting beneath the shelter of my truck during the day.
