I like telling you all about my wonderful adventures as an owner of indoor/outdoor cats while living in the country. There have been many a morning when I have walked into the bathroom half asleep only to come wide awake when I stepped on the remains of some animal one of the cats had as a midnight snack. Then there are the nights I've been woken up by the death throws of a small mammal or a bird flying around my house. Yes, it's all very exciting.
This morning, as I was grabbing my shoes in preparation for leaving for church, I noticed my cats all focusing on my bedroom window. Then I heard it...the sound of a small animal on my windowsill. I pulled back the curtain to see a chipmunk racing back and forth on the sill. I grabbed my leather animal catching gloves (I was bit by a shrew before) and went to catch the intruder.
With the "help" of Cullen, the shrew ran around the bedroom, through the laundry room and into the kitchen. Then it ran back into the laundry room and through the cat door.
Just another exciting and adventurous morning.
