earning his keep

as the weather turns to chill,
little grey rodents come looking for a warm place to nest.
henry has become a mouser by night
and a napper by day.

(i know it's a little rough, but mother nature has
a plan that we don't mess with).


  1. What big paws he has! I'm sure he's an excellent mouser. Our last cat was such a city boy--he would just watch any mice that came inside! Thank heavens it was relatively rare.

  2. So sweet:) I think my cat would pee herself if she saw a mouse.

  3. What a cute picture!! I just want to hug Henry!!

  4. If I had a lovely blue quilt like that I would be fast asleep under it day and night!

  5. Henry, you are quite the cat! Now Bella and BooBoo want some mice to capture!

  6. I love Henry and I ESP love this photo, those paws! That blue, lovely.
