5am Monday morning and I’m rudely awoken by a screaming cat very proud of the fact that at the grand old age of 13 she’s managed to catch something – great! So of course the best action is to wake HP and tell him the cat’s got something and bless him, he does get out of bed while I turn over to ready myself for the inevitable scuffling, sighing and cursing that will follow. Sure enough after about 5 minutes of the former he comes back upstairs to tell me how cute the vole was, how he’d caught it but it jumped out of his hands and then how it escaped into the front room and there was no chance of him finding it so he’s shut the cat out and come back to bed; assuring me that the vole will find a hole to escape.
Now this maybe the case but I thought he’d told me how well we decorated the place and sealed up areas around the radiators etc. so where will this convenient hole be for the the lovely vole? So, I spent the rest of the 2 hours before I had to get up worrying about where the vole was, has it escaped? has it died from shock, only for me to find it’s cute but rotting corpse next time I move the sofa? Oh well another good start to the week…
