Sprackle Update – Quotes for Cat Owners

Sprackle At PlaySprackle has discovered a new lease of life this week – Spring must have woken her up. She does seem to have slept all winter!

She is now proving her skills as an adept, vicious and merciless mouser. So far this week we have had two.

  • One teeny and just about still alive on Friday (upstairs).
  • One larger, cold and feet-upwards on the kitchen mat on Monday.

She is also molting prolifically. We have invested in one of
those rolling ‘clothes brushes’ with tear-off sticky strips and I still
feel perennially covered in a soft down of cat fur.

    love those quotes, particularly the last one. Can’t wait till my life
    is settled enough to get a feline. Jealous of one of my mates back home
    as she gets to look after my cats while my mum’s away on sabbatical later this year.

  2. Casey, dare I ask…..?

    What happened to the teeny and ‘just about still alive’ mouse that you discovered on Friday??

    “Cats aren’t clean, they’re just covered with cat spit.”

    know this all too well. 😦 I love cats, but I’m very allergic to them
    and could never own one. Appparently the chemical I’m allergic to is in
    their saliva.

  4. Casey Leaver says:

    I took the teeny one back outside.

    When I went back 5 minutes later it wasn’t there. I’m hoping it gathered its wits and ran for its life.

  5. Pop says:

    His mate Joe has had a few this week to incl one very large one, def a mouse not a rat thankfully.
    Its the season for mice — birds next month.

  6. Here’s another for your list:
