Got Mice? is the slogan for Barn Cat Buddies (the TNR/Rescue group for which Mom volunteers). Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette were all adopted from BCB. And Astrid has taken mouse hunting and catching as her personal responsibility. If you have not been following our Mouse in the House posts, you can do so by clicking on these links: Wordless Wednesday: Mouse in the House, Mouse in the House Part 2 and Mouse in the House Part 3.
The humans are extremely thankful that she is so diligent in her duties. After deading the large mouse that had taunted her and the rest of us, the humans thought the house was without a mouse. So imagine their surprise when they noticed Astrid standing on her hind legs juggling a mouse above her head. As Dad jumped up to grab a paper towel and then the mouse, Mom demanded he get some photos first. Of course, he missed the juggling, and the photos he did get weren’t great, but here’s the proof of Astrid’s pawsome mousing skills.
When Dad picked up the mousey, he discovered that the little fellow was not dead and so deposited it outside. Hope that little mousey learned his lesson and doesn’t try to sneak in again. We don’t think he will be so lucky next time.
None of us, including our humans, have any idea where Astrid is finding these mice. We’re delighted ’cause we think it is great fun to stalk and tease mousies. The humans are glad to have such a dedicated mouser in the house.
Now that the weather is warming up, we suspect we won’t see any more critters until next winter, but we feel certain that Astrid will remain on alert nonetheless.

Wow, that is pawsome Astrid. You are one very fine mouser.
Our outside brothers and sister (formerly feral) keep the mice away from our house. We wouldn’t mind if they would miss one sometimes so we could practice our hunting skills. Be then we do that with our pink and green mice so no big deal.
Great job, Astrid! You are a masterful mouser! That mousie is really lucky that your Mom and Dad are so compassionate (ours would have done the same, if it makes you feel any better).
Moosey, Gracie and Zoe
Great job Astrid,you’re such an Expert!Mummy wants to know if your mummy got her email,as we keep getting Techy gremlins,xx Speedy
Astrid is totally pawsome! She is my hero!!!
Mes never been much of a mouser.
Pawsome job Astrid.You are very brave to chase those mousies around and keeping them from attacking mom and dad.
Great job Astrid! How fun to be able to play with REAL mousies!
You are a Mighty Hunter Astrid!
Astrid you have a mousing super skills no question about it!
Way to go Astrid! I guess you can’t count on the mancat in the house to be the mouser. MOL!
Astrid, you’ve got great killer instincts!
That sure is some very impressive detective and hunting skills!
Way to go, Astrid! Carl is our champion mouser. Once he caught 3 mice in 20 minutes. The mom thought he was pulling the same one out of the trash. Sadly, this house doesn’t have mice. 🙁
Speaking of trash, thanks for all your help trashing our house while the mom was away! We’ll return the favor next week!
We get the odd mouse who has lost his way here too Astrid. They don’t seem to make that mistake twice. MOL
Way to go, Astrid!! Every house needs a good mouser.
Wonder if there are ever any she catches you don’t know about 🙂
You still have mice? Hmmm… Be right over.
SIVVERS! Prepare the teleportation device.
Wow, Astrid. At least you get to actually catch and keep the mouse. When I go to Barn Hunt, they take the rat away as soon as I find it….
Way to go, Astrid! I am so proud of you. There’s not a better mouser around. I’ve never seen a mouse before, but I hope that if I ever do that I will be as brave and skilled as you are. You are looking very beautiful, as always. –kitty-kisses and purrs, your very lucky boyfriend, Sampson
The rest of us are very impressed as well, Astrid! Very cool. Paw-fives from all of us, and hugs too.
We get mouse nests in the garage. A few years ago one took up residence in my car. I even wrote a Five Sentence Fiction story about him (Mr. Peabody. There are no cats in the garage to take care of things, so we have to. The house has a cement foundation, so no access for mice. I don’t think they would last long with Grizelda or Chloe Jo.
Excellent work Astrid!! Cleo is our chief mousey officer…but then again Forrest the poochies stole her last one after she worked so hard and then eated it!!! how rude 😉 hugs Fozziemum and gang xxx
Bravo Astrid! She’s certainly working hard for her kibble isn’t she??? Not every kitty “contributes” to the running of the house but as “Head Mouser” Astrid is pulling her weight. I’ve never caught a mouse but then we’ve never had one in the house to catch – when I was younger I caught a chipmunk once or twice but Mom always made me “drop it” and it would run away…..darn!
Go, Astrid, Go! We can’t believe your peeps took the mouse away from you before you were done with it, though. That’s impolite.
Way to go Astrid. You are one pawsome mouse catcher. They better stay outside from now on. Have a tremendous Thursday.
Best wishes Molly
How come nothing this exciting ever happens at MY house?
OMC Meez fawt da mousies wus gone fuw suwe. Good goin’ Astrid. Dat’ll show those mousies and maybe hims will tell hims buddies and dey won’t come back. MOL Hav a Pawsum day!! 😀
Luv and Hugs and Kitty Kisses ♥♥♥
Way to go Astrid! Wish I had some mousies to catch here.
Well done, Astrid ! You’re the best at mousing ! Purrs
Unfortunately for your humans, but lucky for Astrid, where there’s one mouse, there’s usually more. Keep up the good work at finding the little critters so your dad can…um…rescue them from your clutches.
