Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: Mouse Rescues Can Be Very Moving

Hello everyone, welcome to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  Y’all know the drill, we always welcome the opportunity to share what we’re most thankful for.  We totally love reading your thankfuls and we love it when you hop along with us.

Today I’m thankful for Dad, the mouse rescuer.  You might remember that I got several fuzzy mice for Christmas.  As most of you know, the fuzzy mice like to run away and hide under things.  One of their favorite hiding places always seems to be under the couch.  Some couches are high, some couches are low, ours happens to be really low and it makes just the purrfect hiding place for a runaway mouse.

Of course I’m somewhat the independent type, so I often like to try and take matters into my own paws.

Sometimes we do need a little helping hand to get those couches and chairs moved. And we may need to annoy until that hand comes haha

Humans do come in handy sometimes….moving furniture is one of those times – it’s fun to hide stuff under furniture but it’s also nice to get it back to play with AGAIN when it’s out of reach!!!!

Love, Teddy

Our mice like to hide under our couch too, but were thankful that the couch is high enough for kitty cats to get under there too!

We are glad your Dad was there to help you retrieve your mousies! Under the fridge and stove are other places toys like to hide. Those are harder for the humans to move, MOL.

Your dad sure is a hero for you and your mice, Brian. We are also always so thankful for toy rescues from beneath the couch. Purrs!

Cat toys are so small, they easily get stuck in tight spots. Hope you have a GPS collar on your mouse so you can locate it easily.

Brian, you sure did try to move the couch! Dads come in handy for these kinds things. This inspired the lady to go find all of Pierrot’s toys.

We’re thankful for you!

We have a yard stick handy, to help scoop out any wayward toys! We are thankful that the temps went up for a few days, making some snow disappear, and that the next cold front isn’t quite as frigid as that last one!

Brian, we thought maybe your dad saved a real mouse, as ours did a coupe of weeks ago. Our toys usually go missing under the stove or fridge. Fiona’s favorite place to stash them was under the fridge. Hmmm, wonder how many things are there now? We always considered your dad to be an exceptionally nice and kind person! We are thankful today that our dear Cooper Murphy is finally starting to get better.

Looks like your Dad is a good mouse-catcher, Brian. My mousie keeps on hanging on to my claws, so he doesn’t need to get rescued…so far 😀 Pawkisses for a Thankful Day 🙂 <3
