Lor in a drawer

The cats love to spend time in the kitchen, for example: Lor in a drawer.
Lor's new hobby is to lay on the ironing board.
Mika's new hobby is to lay in the cabinet where the broom is and go in cabinets maybe looking for mice.
Something has changed in the past two days. Kerstin and I are going to school, so the cats are really freaked out about that.
They are even looking for the suitcases, since we get up at 6 in the morning every day.
The cats might throw a party when we are gone, with all of the alley cats. Every single one. From every single alley in the city of Dubuque.
And Mika starves herself when we are gone. But the funniest part is that once she sees one of us walk in the door, she runs to the food bowl.
Our schools are Thomas Jefferson Middle School and John Marshall Elementary School.

Mouse! Mouse! Mika, catch it!

Last night when I went to bed, my dad came running upstairs, saying "Mika caught a mouse!"
I thought that daddy was kidding, then I thought about it, and actually thought that it was true, because he told me all about it and I heard a big crash.
The crash was Mika capturing the mouse in the kitchen.
She chased it into the bathroom and it ran into a hole behind the sink, but Mika was waiting for it and caught it again and they severely injured it and brought it into the living room and started playing with it.
It died because she was playing with it so hard. My dad used a plastic bag and threw it outside.
I think if Mika can catch a bat -- she caught a flying bat earlier this summer -- she can catch anything.
