Oh my.

Well, it finally happened.

Numfar just came into the bedroom carrying something and chirruping happily. I was a bit confused, because we'd put Mr. Mouse (the beanie baby) in his spot on the cat tree for the night already... and that's what she usually carries around the house. Then she dropped what she was carrying, making even more happy noises, and I realized she'd been carrying around an actual, real mouse!! Thankfully, it was a deceased mouse.

I'm just glad this happened before I managed to fall asleep and that I noticed something was up, or my deep-seated fear of waking to find a dead mouse next to me on my pillow may have come true.

OTOH, this means she found a mouse *inside* our house. Considering we live in the country (seriously, we're just up the street from a very large dairy farm), I guess I should be happy that this is the first sign we've had of mice inside the house since we moved in.

And, you know, take another moment to be VERY happy there will be no dead mouse on my pillow when I wake up in the morning.

Yeah, at least it wasn't alive, but also--no pillow. I can't count how many half alive birds and mice my idiots have brought inside, Blues especially seems to believe he HAS to bring anything inside. He will sit desperately at the door glass and scratach to get in. I dread the day something's found inside the house and he catches it. Emma went apeshit years ago when I had rats in my furnace vent--so tantalizingly close and she could see them, but couldn't catch them.
