Cat and Mouse

To my knowledge, we don't have any mice around here - though sometimes I hear a strange rustling in the attic, a squirrel perhaps?  Considering we have 4 cats in this house right now, we better not have mice!  Though I do wonder if any of the cats would know what to do with a mouse if he (or she) found one.  They have fun batting the toy mice around, but I think a real mouse would probably get away - because they're not used to something that actually moves.

It's like watching those old Tom & Jerry cartoons from Warner Bros where the cat is always trying to get the mouse, but he's just so smart he always gets away.  Speaking of Warner Bros - Dark Shadows comes out today.  Yes, I know, this has absolutely nothing to do with the cats and any hypothetical mice, but - Johnny Depp!  ...and the previews look really good, too.  We probably won't see it this weekend, but I'm definitely wanting to see that movie. 

OK, back to the cats.  Considering there are so many cats around here, things are going quite well.  They are getting along better than I thought they would.  Beth's two cats get along with each other, and Weasley gets along quite well with Nitro.  They play with each other and even snuggle up together sometimes.  And, surprisingly, Tillie doesn't seem to mind either one of them.  She even chases Nitro and bats at him like she wants to play - even when he's just lying around minding his own business.  Beth's other cat Turbo is kind of left out, though he's trying to make friends.  He's a sweet kitty, so I'm not sure why neither Tillie or Weasley seems to like him.  Well, Tillie, because I didn't expect her to like either one of them, but I'm not sure why Weasley likes one cat but not the other one.

I guess I shouldn't complain.  We could have all four of them running around after each other like some crazy episode of Tom & Jerry.  It's bad enough when a couple of them start playing and I start hearing claws on my furniture.  Yeah, I'll just go play some free games on and figure that's enough Tom & Jerry for me!  (and continue to hope/believe there are no mice in the house)

I'm not so good at games - I tried a couple of those games I mentioned, and I had no idea what I was doing.  I guess that means I'm just gonna have to play more, right?
