Mewsette and Mr. Sunshine have settled in spots on the basement steps with the best view for another exciting evening program of Mousewatch.
Patience is a virtue that is rewarded for good black kitties. Mousewatch is a little more engrossing in the basement episodes because this is where the mice are
stupid daring enough enter a house with multiple cats, very near where the main litterboxes have always been placed, directly under the steps. But some kitties need to wait for hours until finally a mousie quietly enters.
From several heavy rains lately we’ve had floods of water in the basement, and even when I sweep the puddles to the drain, under the discerning supervision of basement kitties, the floor still stays damp, as you can see on and around the basement doorstep. This means that the soil outside is still damp, and this encourages the mice to enter, though through what entries I can’t really find.
And I still wonder if these mice are being paid by the network to engage in high risk behaviors for the entertainment of feline audiences.
