Mini Scaredy likes to sleep with me on top of my blankets. But she also has her own little nest right below where I sleep, where she likes to curl up and take naps. . . This morning as I was packing up my blankets, I noticed under my blankets, on my cardboard matting, was this dead, half-eaten, mashed-up mouse that I had been sleeping on top of all night long. I flicked the thing down the hill to where Mini Scaredy is lying. She looked at me like: “Oh. I wondered where that thing went to.” And then went back to sleep. . . Kitty cats are so cute.
