Daily Feline Prompt: Dear Leader - Who??????

If your government (local or national) accomplishes one thing this year, what would you like that to be?

Monogolian Spring mouse - at the pet shop

“Now that is a great photo Mrs. Human. Is that today’s dinner?”

“Definitely not Tabby, that is a photo I took at the pet shop when I was buying your super dehydrated vitamin filled pellets.”

“But I would prefer a super live vitamin filled Mongolian mouse: much more tasty. What do they cost? Can I buy them on with my pawpad?”

“Tabby they are not sold to be eaten. You can buy one as a pet.”

“Aha, then buy one as a pet. I am sure we have room. You could put it next to my sleeping cushion. I have a better idea. I would let it run free in our apartment. We felines would make sure that nothing would happen to it.”

“Tabby that is a Mongolian spring mouse. They are one of the fastest mice you can have and I am not going to have a live mouse running around in the apartment. It wouldn’t be hygienic.”

“Exactly Mrs. Human, then put it next to my sleeping place, I would look after it.”

“Oh yes, Tabby, that would be great, we could share it.”

“Fluffy we felines do not share, everyone for himself.”

“For once I agree felines, no mouse will be shared here, especially as I am not going to complement your rations with a live mouse.”

“She’s gone Fluffy, now we can discuss the matter.”

“No way Tabby, she will not get a live mouse for us. She has funny ideas about animals. She likes to fuss over them and feed them.”

“All the better Fluffy, it would become a nice fat well fed mouse. A very tasty morsel.”

“But I don’t think she will get one for us, so we just have to be satisfied with a photo of the one that got away.”


  1. He's such a cute little fellow. He would be welcome to live in my home, although he might not enjoy getting here......flying is not a natural state for a mouse!!

    1. I think they do fly. They are the fastest mice on earth. We looked after one once from a friend and I was warned not to let him out for a walk.They don't walk but make constant attempts to break the speed of light.

  2. We could have one here, my cat would never catch it!
