Noll Chucks Up a Letter to the Home Office

Dear Management,

Over the course of this past week, you have sallied forth with nonstop mutterings. I am disappointed because most of what we have overheard has been very judgemental.

Nevertheless, in response, I take the high road and refrain from passing judgement. I will, however, defend our position as neutrally as possible.

Firstly, the felines in this establishment understand our responsibility vis-a-vis the delicate predator/prey relationship.

Secondly, we admit to our "recent sloppy, pitiful mousing" (did I quote you correctly?) if you admit to your role in undermining the situation.

Tiggy was on that mouse under the plant stand. He'd have succeeded in waiting it out too. You, however, moved the stand and allowed it to escape. We also know there was a second mouse under the microwave. I was on that one. But, you of course, had to move that stand as well!

You screaming "Get the mousies! Get the mousies!" confused poor grandma into thinking you were yelling at her. Of course, grandma teatering off balance from whipping off her slipper and whacking after the escaping mousies, threw everyone's game off.

Which meant we now had two baby mice on the run with grandma swinging her slipper and you running poor interference, shouting plays at us. How many times do I have to remind you, "UNCLE KEAKS CAN'T HEAR?!?"

I waited almost all day by the china hutch for the mice to come out.
Your glueboards were insulting AND redundant!

Next time, don't have a bedtime snack and you'll not chance upon our "**Half (rhymes with) Mast** work." Tiggy was on that mousie....AGAIN! You could have turned around and pretended you never saw it lolling by the pantry. Oh no, you had to grab a glueboard, corner it, and scoop it up. Duh!...Einstein....
G-L-U-E-B-O-A-R-D?

We're sorry about the outcome...
We know you prefer to catch and release!

Next time, a little self-restraint on your part AND we will put the sloppy work behind us!


Yours Purrfully,

Noll, Tiggy, Keaks, & Luigi (who was noticeably absent during the event)

That is a very exciting story! We understand screaming humans can throw off the mouse hunt every time!

Gandalf and Grayson said...

Luigi was probably on a solo hunt, no doubt, given all the aforesaid commotion.

Reese =^..^= said...

Sometimes I puke. Nothing like a mousey hunt to make me feels better.

Eric and Flynn said...

Beans just don't get it that they should keep out of the way and leave the mouse hunting to us.

The Creek Cats said...

We think your letter was well thought out and to the point. We also agree with Eric and Flynn... humans should definitely stay out of the way of a good mouse hunt!

Fin said...

I guess they think yelling helps... Staff!

Tristan and Crikey said...

Poor Grandma! Catch those mousies quickly!

Lisa, Jack and Baby said...

Jack has been stalking the chipmunk in the garden. He's not fast enough to ever catch it. I could, but I am not allowed outside as I can squeeze through the fence. - Baby

LOL Brilliant story. I have to agree with everyone, the beans should keep out of it, you could have sorted the situation n a jiffy. Beans ba humbug.

I agree Noll...the humans have to leave us alone so we can do our work properly!

Junior and Orion said...

Oh my.......sounds like it was fun and interesting. Hopefully your beans will learn more appreciation for your skills after this.
