This morning Vladi caught his first house mouse (to go along with the shrew he brought in from the kennel yesterday), and boy is he excited! There have been steady rains the past few days, and many mice have been searching for shelter in our walls. We can hear them scurrying around, especially at night. Yesterday we saw our first mouse in the house, but it eluded Tanji, despite his amazing stalking abilities. Today Vladi managed to catch a mouse by the washing machine, and there was the usual frenzy; Tanj and Usch wanting to play too, and me trying to get the mouse safely away from our wild men. Once the mouse was in a container, Vladi could take a closer look...
and at first Vladi does not see his catch...
There it is!
Mine, all mine!
Tanj and Usch are ready to assist, if necessary.
Vlad and Tanj take a closer look.
Vladi looks the mouse in the eye.
The little mouse is pretty scared, and its time
to take him back outside where he belongs.
The boys are keeping a united eye out for more mice.
That would have been good licking!
