A Mouse Tale! — 12 Comments

  1. Seeing an animal in your food box — I hate that when that happens. LOL. I have racked my brain and I can’t for the life of me figure out God’s purpose of a slimy mouse, at least in our food box. LOL.

    One evening when I opened the back door to my home, I heard a rustling in my garbage can. Ah ha, I’m going to catch me a cat. I saw the fur on his back and while he was rummaging, I snuck down the stairs, reached in, and grabbed the intruder by the skin and fur and yarded him out of my garbage can. I am very lucky that I was not bitten or hurt, because what I grabbed a hold of was not a cat but a large possum, and he was NOT playing possum. I think my heart stopped, I can’t remember but needless to say he ended up flat against my garage door, which was about 20 feet away. The old adage, “Your strength is magnified when scared,” is true Karen, trust me. LOL.

  2. When I saw the title “Mouse Tale” I had a hard time as my Mom always had a fear of mice and instilled that in me. I never thought about God made those creatures so I had better start liking them and not be so afraid. I really do enjoy your articles.

    • Mary, fun to hear from you. Thanks for reading and for rethinking your opinion of mice!! I’ve had to do the same. 🙂

  3. Karen, I can’t imagine you not smiling but I bet your smile vanished at that sight. I could relate to your comment, however. After 9/11 I couldn’t kill an ant that I found in my newspaper. I carefully carried the paper to the front stoop and set it free. It, too, was one of God’s creatures.

    • Marie, thanks for sharing your mouse ‘tale’ too. Yes, these little guys are God’s creatures too.

  4. YIKES! I don’t like furry little creatures with tails. I’d scream. Thank goodness for workers to help you out. 🙂

    • Thanks, Sherry. I better get over my screaming–since God loves these little guys too!

  5. When my sister and I were stil living at home ( in Highschool), Mom saw signs of a mouse on our screened in back porch so she set a trap. When my sister and I got home from school she saw a mouse in the trap caught by it’s tale, so she let it go! When mom found out she asked her why she did it. Edith said, “it was crying because his tale was caught and I felt sorry for him” ! ME? I would not touch it! Loved your story.

    • Margaret, what a cute ‘tale’ about the mouse you encountered when you were a teen. It made me smile!

  6. Your Mouse Tale had a surprising twist! I did not expect that as the point of your story! Fun and thought provoking. I’m pondering somewhat, over just where the boundary lines are for these little creatures. lol
