While we’ve been working in the office, the guest bed that is usually in that room has been leaning on end in the hallway. Artie figured out that the top of the mattress was an comfortable and hidden place for a nap. We’ve been trying to discourage him from climbing up the side of the mattress so last night I got out the squirt bottle and let him have it. I think he realized I was mad at him and so he brought me gifts today. The first one came around 10am when he came in and I heard him meow kind of funny. I looked down and he had brought a big field mouse in and then proceeded to play with under my chair until I took his outside toy back outside. After running up to Lori’s office to fix her computer I got home about 5pm and there was Artie, with another large field mouse, again at my desk. I took that one outside too. And yes, he ate both of them, and then still wanted dinner when Lori got home.
