Happy Gotcha Day, Banshee!!!

Hi furriends! It has been way too long! The PM has been super busy but at least she had the sense to remember my special day!  It has been two years that I have been living here and I am still lovin' it!

I invite you all to come over and celebrate with me!

The PM changed the upstairs around as the wee lass wanted her own room. It is pink and purple and very cosy! Purrfect for a nice nap pile! The wee lass even has a Maggie May print on her dresser!! 

Us calicos are so very pretty.


After our nice nap we can do some hunting! We are having some rodent issues here out in the woods and it is causing a bit of stress.  

First off we have the regular mice. We thrash around after them during the night and the PM hears them in the walls. Awhile ago the PM smelled "death" in the dining room and the MM was sent on a search while the PM was out with the wee ones. He found a corpse under the sideboard.  I was wondering where that little devil went.  Then we had a nest in the car! Every time the fan was put on, bits of fluff and grass flew out! The MM took it apart but nothing was found. Then one morning, while the MM was driving home after a night shift, a mouse crawled out through the vent and sat on the dashboard!! The MM thought he was hallucinating! He tried to get him out but he squeezed back into the vent. The next evening, the MM went to leave for work and the mouse was sitting beside the window so he opened the door and he ran out! 

Now the PM has found some rather large droppings in the attic and it is not mice! So, we have either rats or a squirrel living in there. We have seen both in the yard. The MM had to get all geared up and clean out the poo and we have some live traps set out to try and catch whomever is coming in. 

Our friend, Mr. Weasel, has been around too, probably after all the rodents. I wouldn't tango with him though, he's a tad vicious. He's pretty quick too! The PM tried to take his photo but he's wild!





Just yesterday the PM noticed someone has chewed a hole in the screen in the wood room. We keep that open to air out the wood we just put in there. Not anymore! 


Come join the chase!!!

Happiest second Gotcha Day, Banshee! We'll join in in everything you proposed. And wow, that's quite the Weasel you got there.
Purrs,

P.S.: Your Gotcha Day reminds me that a few days after you came to live in the woods a certain someone appeared at my house too. Those were exciting times!

Cory said...

Happy Gotcha Day Banshee! I remember that day so well because mom was leaking about how long you spent at the shelter and how they made you a poster and all that! What a happy day!

We'd love to teleport over to help you celebrate. Grete said she might be useful with the larger critter and promises to give them a good chase.

xoxo Cory and family

It sure sounds like you have your work cut out for you. And Happy Gotcha day. We are just so glad that you found such a great home. Better get busy catching those varmits. Love the story about the mouse in the car.
Take care and have a fantastic week end.

Happy Gotcha Day, Banshee! Gosh, we can't wait to get to your house and start hunting...CC is on the Catio stropping his claws...he's a bit dim, but deadly!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Happy Gotcha Day! Oh, chasing kritters sounds like a great way to celebrate. Lets go get 'em.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Happy Gotcha Day, Banshee!

A plumber left a hole under the house once and very large rats (wharf rats from the mill) got in the walls and chased smaller rodents and scared Jan half to death. Drove us crazy because we could hear them but not reach them. So Jan has an idea how your PM is taking the mouse problem.

Wishing you a Very Happy Gotcha Day, Banshee!

We know all about mice noises in the walls here too... Bibi must start working on his hunting skills now that our Champion Mouser Yuu-Chan is no longer with us.

CCL Wendy said...

Happy Gotcha Day, Banshee! Wow, you sure have lots of good hunting out your way.

Dante has made friends with the squirrels where we live, but I think a mousie or rat would tempt him.

Have a great day and I hope you get lots of treats, nip and extra cuddles.

Wyatt said...

Glad the PM remembered your Gotcha day and you have plenty of mice to chase to keep you young. Watch out for that weasel!

Ayla and Iza, said...

The best way ta get mousies out of the car is ta put the car in a pond fer a day. Not that there arent some complilacations after, but we are pretty sure it werks.

Daisy said...

Happy belated Gotcha Day, Banshee! It appears that you had a wonderful and exciting day. Sounds like it has been a rodent fest round your house and yard! I'm sure the wee lass is thrilled with her new decor -- it sets you off right as well!
Hi to the PM -- tell her I'm sorry that I've gone underground again, but I HAVE at least gotten some things done around the house, and I'm sure she will understand! =^..^=

Cat said...
