Tekulo: Mouse Catcher Extraordinaire
Cat Hunters Suck
Long story short: My cats found a mouse. It was stunned for a moment, and they actually started to lose interest and walk away when-
The mouse began to twitch,
The kits they took a swish,
They ran until the mouse was caught by Tekulo's simple stitch,
Which was not a healthy situation for the little kits
-cough- Sorry, with all of the scary stuff from Halloween, it appears I've caught Bieber Fever coupled with Sparkly Vampire Middle School Musical syndrome. D=
Anyway, to explain those poorly put together lyrics, I ended up catching the mouse with my superior thumbs and a cardboard cup.
Now, nearly everyone and I mean EVERYONE that I've been with in these situations always tell me to "KILL KILL KILL!" in these situations (be them mice, spiders, etc). I am a total wuss, a hippie, a tree-marrying sap (those huggers are lightweights. My husband may be 200 years old, but at least he listens! D= ), however I'm not vegetarian (though I really, really hate processed meats. =/ No flavor but salt and most of it just ends up in the garbage with my family anyway). Which reminds me; I could never go vegan. Dairy products are my favorite food group outside of bread (and my favorite bread is made with egg and milk anyway, so they overlap in my favorite food genre. If I ever become a vegetarian, It's lacto-ovo for me!).
ANYWAY, no; I do not kill vermin if I can help it. I once found a mouse in my toilet when I was living in a camp in the woods (and treefrogs this one other time. Though, everyone actually tried to save those "because those are frogs" VIVA TAUTOLOGY!). I got a plastic cup (which I wasn't a fan of to begin with) and set it next to the mouse. The poor thing hopped in (you should've seen it! It was shivering and afraid for its life. I couldn't just flush it; waaaay too cruel for my taste) and I took it out to the woods and let it go. Plus, mice, rats, etc are totally adorable. Like a chinchilla; both are rodents and both are totally cute. So, that's exactly what I did this time around. Got a disposable cup, managed to trap it when stunned/trapped by cats and then took it to the woods. It was curled into a ball when I took off the lid. SO ADORABLE! Field mice are always adorable. ^^
So, the moral of this story is; I may be just as lame as my cats in the "number of kills" department, but I can actually catch a mouse, so I make a better pet. XD
GET OFF MY LAWN!
