I was outside getting Lucy back into the yard after she jumped the fence when I heard commotion inside. As I headed back towards the house, Kiki comes running out “a mouse on the shoes” and runs back inside. What? I ran inside to find both girls on the couch, a mouse sitting on our shoe pile across the floor, and Guster sitting on the floor in between happily chewing on a toy.
The mouse just looked at us but did not attempt to run so I quickly ran downstairs to get a box. When I came back the mouse, amazingly, was still there. I cautiously walked over to it and tried to get it in the box. It jumped! Scared the living daylights out of me. I tried a second time to shoe it in the box and it jumped right in.
All I can conclude is that something was wrong with this mouse. Thankfully this particular one will no longer be a problem.
Later the girls were coloring and Kiki showed me her picture of the family: momm, daddy, Guster, Lulu, herself, Lucy, Miki, and the mouse.
