    The only present I like less than a dead mouse is a dying one. In my house.

    The not so adorable side of the kitties. But when they bring a bird in is even worst. Now, my most horrific experience was the day my cat brought a rat in, injured but far from dead, for me to finish it. Thank you very much…

    My husband has named him Mr. Jingles, which only makes him cuter and me feel guiltier for failing to save him. He is such a brave little survivor mouse…. not dead of mortal wounds in my heating duct as I had worried but very much alive and living behind our refrigerator.

    The cats are not bored.

    We have set a peanut butter trap (cat-proof even though Pogo has not earned any paw protection) to save him from starving slowly to death and we couldn’t find any of the  catch-and-release version. Oh Mr. Jingles! Run, Mr. Jingles, run!

    God, I love your narrative. I am gripped. Please write a book. I am totally serious.

    Chapter 3:

    Wherein Brave Sir Jingles dashes across the living room floor, heedless of his feline tyrants. Taking cover in Book Case, he makes his stand before taking another wound from Pogo the Bad and Lil the Tormentor.

    Will our valiant hero find his way to freedom? Will he accept a ride in Dust Pan from Scary Human? Will he perish in the spring-loaded jaws of an evil instrument of death in his quest for Peanut Butter? Or will he survive to fight and win yet another battle against the steepest of odds?

    Dunh dunh daaaah…..

    Chapter 4 : Jingles is Seriously Fucking Badass

    From the Land of Office Couch, Jingles dashes to the door (yes, I swear to mousey gods, he’s fucking smart), past The Cats, then seeing no exit, back again. All in the blink of an eye. Unscathed on this particular mission.

    Go J. You will prevail.

    The joys of Jingle’s engagement to Mingle, the dozens of offsprings in their remodeled condo of Land of Office Couch…

    Oooh, I hope not. I have become a big fan of Jingles. But not that big.

    I’m also dreading writing a eulogy for Jingles because if he’s in hiding, finding him for proper burial could be an issue. I really don’t want to have to explain why my house smells of dead rodents and why they have names.

    Jingles lives to tell the tale of the days when he fought two cats. And won.

    I might have just snagged my dream job after a Valentine dinner with potential colleagues. I really like them. I’ll be waiting by the phone hoping they call for the next couple of weeks.

    We’re a pretty lucky bunch, I have to say.

    No details here, but I will say that a potential future colleague/boss is TOTALLY Ron Swanson if Ron Swanson wore a fedora and glasses and was a crazy music freak. We whipped out our ipods and started quizzing each other on obscure artists and scared everyone else in the room (who were younger by far). It was the best job interview ever.

    Not quite official yet, but I get to move for a shiny new job.

    Non-Ron, as he will be known from now on, is now my new colleague, and not my boss. I couldn’t be happier. Goodbye, stress.
