Well, look what the cat brought in. Poor baby mouse. When you have cats no telling what you will find on the porch. Birds, mice, lizards, etc. I try to tell my cats not to bother the birds, lizards, frogs, or butterflies, but they don't listen very well. I guess when they see one of these little critters their natural instincts kick in and off they go after it.

This is my great niece's cat and I couldn't figure out where she was and then I looked up and there she was, way up on the side of the cabinet very near the ceiling. Those Siamese cats have the loudest meows and it's more like they are crying or trying to talk instead of meowing! They have two of them and they are long and lean and I love to watch them playing. They can jump so high and they are really funny in their antics.
Today was hot and I must admit that I was quite lazy and didn't get much accomplished. I did finish reading a book if that counts.

Cats have a way of not listening and just doing what they want. I don't like the "gifts" either, but it's part of being a cat owner.
Love the cat perched on the cabinet!

Our cat recently brought a dead bird into my husband's den! I wish he wouldn't catch the birds!

Once- when I called them up for their dinner in the evening -one came- the other didn't right away...but finally did...and in his mouth was the biggest rat I had ever seen! Not quite dead ! Yuck! I didn't watch so I don't know if he decided to eat his rat or the Meow Mix I offered!

I know just what you mean about the cats. I have 2 but they're both inside kitties so I don't have to worry about the unexpected gifts they tend to bring in. One of mine is a Siamese mix so I know exactly what you're talking about with their voices, too.

Muffy, a tomcat we had when I was a teenager, used to bring in rabbits, moles, rats, mice, voles, and of all things, crawdads! One of my sisters' cats brought in a live bat and turned it loose! Now that was interesting to say the least, trying to catch the poor frightened thing so we could release it back outside!

Have a wonderful Friday, Rachel. :-)

Love and hugs,

I'd still need a good working mouser here on the farm. I catch mice even in the summer. They are unstoppable. All I can do is set traps.

Oh, that siamese looks so regal perched up there.
Of course reading counts! I love to read. What book did you finish?

Finishing a book does count!
I wish my cat would bring in dead stuff, he specializes in the dazed and confused critters that come to life in my living room.

Acomplish what you can when you can. That is my philosophy. I hope that book was a good one! That is an accomplishment, reading is a great way to expand your mind and horizons, and if you borrow the book form the library, consider it a free vacation in your mind! Have a great weekend, Rachel! Oh, and by the by, Marley, our dear departed dog, was a mouser. He would bring us moles, water rats, mice and the like. So, it isn't just cats! Siamese cats are really interesting cats, and I am not a cat person, they are smart and selective, and can "feel a person's vibes."

Ya know, some genius actually put field mice on the endangered species list. Bwahahahahahah!! I read about it when it impacted a community development project - I wish I could refer you to the article.

Have a great weekend, Rachel. ;)

Poor little baby mousy-poo! He was no match for a wily kitty.
My MIL and SIL are visiting here until Saturday.
I have just a few moments to stop by and say hello to a few blog buddies.

HELLO, Rachel!! :-)

I will have a new post up on Sunday.
I hope you have had a good week.

Cats are better than mice. So keep the cat. It's nearly a toss up though.
Yes finishing a book does count.

I'm not much of a cat-person, but I do like the looks of the Siamese cats.
Don't EVER feel guilty about finishing a book. I don't!
Reading is my favorite pastime...just don't get much time to do it anymore.

Rachel, you have told us the best thing about cats. They should be outside and they like to show the master what they have eradicated.
Rachel, that is how long (six weeks) my leg will be in the 'immobilizer' while some of the knee-cap fragments are mending and the others healing.
It comes off for showering but even then I have to keep my leg straight.

Yes, it's hard to tell a cat not to go after anything that moves. I haven't had much luck at it myself and it does seem like such a waste of a life since they don't even eat the stuff.

I used to have siamese cats and yes they are very loud. They also like to sit on top of curtain rods and will destroy the delicat-est curtins climbing up there. hehehe
