Miaow!! Update [2013-1-22 20:41:41 by anonimouse]: with pic

Plus other news in Sniff-O-Vision

Just prior to the Great Snowfall in the UK, Mrs Mouse saw an advert for a three year old cat needing a new home. So she went to view the cat, and decided that our home should be its new one. It's apparently a Maine Coon, but because the previous owners obtained it from a cat shelter, there are no papers to back up that assertion. It has the right shape and fur length, but is a little undersized for me to be fully confident, as our year old "genuine" female is already bigger than it.

Anyway, in the week we've had it, we've managed to lose it multiple times, as it seems to be a little paranoid and tries to find every single nook and cranny to stay in. When you do get hold of it, it seems to switch off its paranoia for half an hour and be perfectly happy to lie there and have its tummy rubbed, but eventually he will wander off and hide again. He seems to have settled on hiding under Miss Minimouse's bed, which is a bad move as far as he is concerned, as the bed has removable slats for easy underbed cat extraction.

Due to its habits, it hasn't established a relationship with the other cats, which spent the Great Snowfall in two different ways. The two moggies spent it on the top of Mr Minimouses bunk bed, curled tightly into balls asleep, and coming down only for food and water, with very quick trips outside only when needed. The Maine Coon spent the time in the next door neighbours house; for some reason it gets on extremely well with her Border Collie, and romping around in the snow, seeming slightly disappointed that none of the others would come out and play.

..are off school because the school bus can't get into our village. They seem disgustingly pleased about this. Mrs Mouse is hopefully and finally about to pass her driving test and become a proper driver, so they only have this year to enjoy the experience.

Strenuous efforts are being made to stop a foul stench coming across the Channel from France to England. The problem could be simply solved if only the French cut out garlic and Roquefort....

I knew the title would be deliberately misleading about a cat, but we still want an oGirl update

One of ours is like that.  He's always hiding.  I don't think it's necessarily hiding from us, as he has a lot of favorite spots we know to look for him.  It's just that he doesn't like being in the open.  He won't sit in laps, but is often under/behind the chair my wife is sitting in.
