    Inflation has hit Mousie fer sure. S/he had to
    fork over a lot of gelt for that treat. Things are
    bad all over, apparently.

    The other’s insane.

  11. Not ONLY highway robbery, but quite a bit
    of Hard Labor in forking over the metal lettuce, too!!!

  12. oooooooooooooooooo I hope not . I’m such a dang wimp that I STILL haz a Sad about Algernon AND Charly’s eventual re-descent into not-so-uber-smartness. 😦

  13. 😯

  14. Do we really want to know? Some questions should remain unanswered.

  15. Extorbitant!

  16. OMG that is soooo awesome!!!! 😀 😀

  17. More cute pawseez! I am being slain left right and centre today!

  18. Do you think if our hands were covered with more fur they’d be cute too? I don’t care who the paw belongs to,big or small (think how cute a big beary paw is) paws are cute!

  19. Hey Fird, I seem to be getting mod’d in Your Very Special Post, but I just wanted to say Congratulations to you! We loffs u!!

  20. The last chapter kills my heart every time I read it.

  26. Hummm… maybe I should start charging my cats for their treats.

  27. Sheesh, me too. Every time I just walk into the kitchen, she follows me, sits politely, and meows at her treat cabinet. What does she think I am, made of treat money?!

  29. Okay, I’m not a rodent fan (I actually have a phobia of them), but this was completely adorable! I approve!

  30. So tiny! I’ve never understood how mice aren’t considered universally cute. Ratties too.

  31. Awesome!!!!!!!

  32. good luck with that……

  33. I know, right? Cause a bubonic plague or two, and your whole species is vilified.

  34. Really? I’m giving up unidentified food pellets myself.

  35. Yes I know, a lot of people don’t like mice and rats but they like squirrels, and what are squirrels, they are rats with bushy tails and good PR.

  36. fleurdamour says:

    Cats? No, I think if you tried to charge, they’d just rob you.

  37. *sniff*

    *wipes tears wif back of shirt sleeves*

  38. “In a Related Story…”

  39. (JK of course; the film was — I think — a Fiction film ….)

  40. I know that wouldn’t work with my two critters. I’m just grateful they allow me to live here and cater to their every need. 🙂

  41. I actually share your phobia but thankfully that doesn’t keep me from appreciating how adorable they look. It’s just that in my dreams, they are never adorable or small or sweet. Been having those terrible rattie dreams since I can remember. *shoulder shrug*

  42. It was FLEAS who caused the plague.

  43. William Johnson says:

    Well if you want to get pedantic, it was bacteria (Yersinia pestis) who caused the plague, and the bacteria were carried by fleas, and the fleas were carried by rats. After that I think it was turtles all the way down, or something like that.

  44. I think that’s a rat.

    May I assume from the details here, that each of you is already familiar with
    Ellen de G’s bit about having a telephone chat with God and her enquiring of Him, as to the logic behind the creation of mosquitos, flies and ants????
