(Trickery and Treachery Day - Beware.)
Trousers woke me from a wonderful dream about
Snowball, with screams of “Mouse! Mouse!” Running across the
carpet was a huge, fierce grey mouse that looked like a cross
between a rat and a vacuum cleaner. Being brave and valiant I
had to save my humans from this beast. I bounced across the room
and, with great precision and dexterity, leapt upon the monster.
Clutching the viscous demon between my paws, I held it captive
as I rolled over and over. Even when I hit the wall with a
mighty thud I held on tight. I looked up, expecting adoration
and praise for my heroic act - but everyone was laughing. Only
then did I realize it was a plastic clockwork mouse. I had been
tricked. What a cheek!
11:00 PM: Caught a mouse in the
garden. After snapping off its head I smuggled the pieces into
the house. When Trousers and skirt were sound asleep, I left the
head and body on their pillows as a nice little surprise.
