Uh oh!

First of all we want to thank all of you for your support during this difficult time. All your kind thoughts really do help.
Several of you have told us we have to work hard to make our mum and dad smile. Well we succeeded this morning.
Dad woke up about 4.30 to go to the bathroom and we asked if we could go out in the garden so he opened the door for us and went back to bed. A bit later he thought he heard a noise but didn't hear anything else so thought he had imagined it. A bit later still mum wanted to go to the bathroom and thought it was strange that we hadn't been back in to see them so went out to look in the other room.

This is what she found! There were CDs, camera boxes, heavy phone books and all sorts scattered on the floor.

The first thing that came into her mind (after she grabbed the camera) was whether it was a bird or a mouse.

She didn't see any feathers so thought it must be a mousie and I was still trying to climb through the computer desk.

She called dad to see the mess and I thought I was in big trouble but they both were laughing about it and they thanked me for starting their day with a smile. Then she picked up the worst of the mess and moved the small shelves and I helped dad catch the mousie.

That is such good news that you started the day off for mum and dad with a smile. Well done on catching that mousie and whats a few spilled books when you are on the hunt. Your mum will win through with so much support behind her. The power of the paw.. Hugs GJ xx

Daisy said...

Glad to see you started their day off right!

betweencatsblog said...

On the bad side, a mouse in the house! On the good side, an awesome mouser like you was around to take care of it. Your mum and dad must be so grateful. Dora killed a moth the other day which flew into the toe of a clog and she had to get into the clog to get it...all fun and games.
We are thinking of your mum and Dora is purring like crazy.

Hannah and Lucy said...

We laughed at your mum and Dad cleaning up about 4.30 a.m. but it was your dad's mistake for letting you go into the garden when mousies think they are safe from the mighty hunters! We love how your mum grabbed the camera before clearing up the mess - she's got her priorities right. Well done for making them laugh - especially so early in the day. We are still purring for you all lots and lots.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Penny said...

A mighty hunter just can't worry about being neat - especially when in hot pursuit of a mousie.
You did great. And I'm sure you mum and dad where proud. They like the fact you keep the house mouse free.

Purrs,
Genghis

Marg said...

Good job Eric and Flynn, especially making Mom and Dad smile. We know they are having a rough time right now and are sending so many purrs, we know Mom will get better. A tiny bit of advice from our Mom, take it ONE day at a time. Take care and you are really in our thoughts a lot.

TK and Squashies said...

You boys are pawsome! We likes the part that sais "after she grabbed the camera". Your mom sure has her priorities straight!
Thanks fur the smiles, both for them and for us.
We is purring and purring.
Love, TK

Very good job.

OKcats said...

Well, gosh, boys and parents, we are without words. We've been away for over a week, and we are just now seeing this news. We just don't know what to say except that we're so very sorry for the bad news, but your Mum is amazing, and a good attitude surely must help. And you know you have a good Mum. How, you ask? Our mom would have skinned us alive for that mess - yours just laughed! We love you all, and we'll be sending you purrs, ok?

Love, Fuzzy and Zoe

Huffle Mawson said...
