yesterday my wife found traces of a mouse in the basement. i took one of our cats to the spot and pointed it out(like you can train a cat)this morning at 5:30 i let the cat in and to my suprise she had learned what i wanted EXCEPT SHE MUST HAVE MISUNDERSTOOD she had a live mouse which she proceded to release as soon as she entered the house, now i don't know how wide awake your house is at 5:30 am but trying to catch a mouse with a dog a cat a half awake old man and a screaming wife is certianly one way of starting the old heart working good morning world

Fine cat you have there, bob ny.
People think you cant train a cat,
I disagree.
In one day I taught Top Cat to ring a door bell when he wants in.
He kept tearing up the screen junping on it.
So I attached a small bell at the bottom of the door showed him how to ring it.
Now he rings it when folks come over, he helps them by ringing his door bell.
I only showed him a couple of times.
Cats are pretty smart,
yours knew what you wanted.
I am not sure how to tell him you would prefer them dead.
Mine brought me all kind of little "gifts" like that birds, snakes, lizzards;
once a live flyig squirrel!
Talk about excitement; it took a minute to figure out what he was giving us.
When we did find out, the next challenge was catching it.

Hate to say it, but if there are traces of "a mouse", you have more than one.

Yep, we always used to say if you see one rat in the corn crib, you have at least ten!
This is the time of year when those furry little critters are moving in for the winter. I always try my best to be a good host, and make sure they have plenty to eat! LOL.
