    I don't know how long the mouse was in the trap overnight but a sizable piece of cracker and peanut butter was missing. I think he got a pretty good deal.

    If there was a live mouse - even in a trap - in my house, I'd STILL be standing on a chair with my cell phone, shrieking for someone to come and take it away. I'm SUCH a wimp!

    Well, I took my kitties to the vet today. My credit card took a $500 hit and I found out Squirty has a heart murmur.

    It doesn't sound like there's anything to do about the heart murmur but just watch him and bring him in if he starts breathing hard or acting strange. I hope he's going to be alright! I can't afford heroic treatment efforts and I wouldn't have him put down unless he appeared to be suffering. He seems perfectly happy right now. Or as happy as any cat is directly after a bath, which he got when I got home to take care of some fleas.

    How old is squirty?

    The only thing I know about heart murmurs is sometimes they can be cuased by thyroid "problems" and lately ... many cats I know l seem to have thyroid issues lately. Also ... if there is any coughing ... be sure to call the vet.

    Sorry about the fleas

    Joey had a heart murmur when he became anxious, (going to the vet for instance) but the vet checked a few times during each exam and most of the time she didn't hear it.

    Squirt's about 12 or 13 years old. I can't remember right off which year I got him, but he's not a kitten. The vet did say not to worry about it, she was just letting me know.

    Imagery spooks (a ceiling fan) made a small piece of paper suddenly flutter in front of my cat as he was walking to another sunny window...it made Mr. Macho put his owl ears on and jump straight it the air.
    No, I didn't see you and laugh ... as he puffs his shoulders up and saunters to his sunbeam.
