    Oh! The MAYHEM!
    Every sense was prickled. Each character ubiquitous, playing his or her role with precision. I was right there, helpless in the chaos.

    Oh lord………I'm sore from laughing so hard. This was me when a rat got in my apartment years ago and my cat was completely uninterested in helping out. He was a lover, ot a fighter.

    Haha, I loved the bit about your pants, Beth. A beautiful diversionary tactic 😀 And Brutus is a wonderful cat, but I can imagine he's hard to resist when he's suffocating you!

    I wish you had been there, Nancy, you'd have been much more helpful than our mangy crew!

    Teehee, I'd love to say that these stories aren't true, but that would be a lie!! Thanks ever so much, Laurie – I'm incredibly grateful to you for taking the time to read them!

    Heh heh heh, in that case, Sue, you'll understand exactly how the scenes of chaos played out!! I'm so glad it gave you a chuckle, thanks for reading it!

    Well, Val, one simply CAN'T be left wandering around with one's nether regions unprotected as it were, who knows what might have happened! The problem with Brutus is that I'm putty in his paws. I must learn to be tougher on him…it's so hard though!! 😀

    Well, Pam, they're certainly not my favourite species when they're pottering all over my veggies, that's for sure! :/

    Just hilarious! I laughed so much I cried through it. I had my own dealing with mice and a disinterested cat who I had to put in the bedroom as I was afraid one would bite my poor Midnight!

    Heh heh heh, bless you, Amy, thanks so much for reading it. Argh, you poor thing! I can picture the scene, it's never an easy task having to remove unwanted visitors. :/
