The Mouse Trap

I went to visit a friend of mine yesterday who is an animal lover, he has a lovely black cat called Chicken!, this cat has a problem with bringing mice into the house, usually they are little tiny mice that she does not eat, she just likes to chase them around the house then kill them and leave them as a present to her owner, he is very disturbed by this natural behaviour and is always trying to save these little mice which he thinks they are cute (I don't!) few days ago chicken brought in this little mouse but my friend managed to save it before Chicken caused it any harm, the mouse was really stressed and even when it was put in the garden it just stood there not moving. So he decided to put it in a little box with some seeds and moist bread and shredded tissue to hide under and then put this Little box inside a big glass enclosure that used to house a Water Dragon that died recently of old age, this was done to protect it from the cat.
The mouse apparently gained strength and started to jump outside its little box into the main enclosure but what my friend failed to notice is the plastic container which the water dragon used to swim in and still had some water in it. Yesterday the mouse was so healthy, it jumped so high and straight into the water container, it drowned.
My friend was a bit upset when he told me what happened, I wanted to laugh but said nothing until I looked inside the plastic water container and saw the little mouse dead and floating, I burst out laughing so loud and just could not stop, he was angry with me telling me that I am a great support but I just kept on laughing, I am not cruel and although I am not crazy about mice but the whole thing was so funny, the mouse came back to life gained so much strength just to jump in the water and die!
Last night in bed the image of the mouse was haunting me and I just laughed and laughed loudly, I am laughing now writing this post.

I laughed and felt sorry for the mouse at the same time !

I always thought mice were quite clever and could swim.

Maybe I watched and still do Tom and Jerry !
Thanks for sharing.

What a story!!
I read it having a motion picture on my mind and it was much better than watching cartoons for sure. In fact, this post could become a cartoon easily!
BTW, thanks for including my blog on your link list!

so funny, poor little mouse, i guess its a situation where you either have to cry or laugh.

i agree this should be made into a cartoon.

AngloLibyan said...
