Mouse in the house

December 27, 2009
In the town of Doetinchem on Christmas Eve, a mouse also known as The Rat, was killed.

The Rat had taken up residence in a family home of seven. The husband and wife resisted his reign of terror and made several attempts on his life, but all in vain. The Rat was unimpressed.

In a rare interview, only days ago, he declared: 'I just lick the strawberry jam from the trap! They have to do better to catch me.' He fell silent for a moment and then said in thoughtful tones: 'I've got a good thing going here.'

But never shall he drink or eat again, for on Christmas Eve he met with an unfortunate accident.

The man of the household tried to catch him by throwing a box over him. 'I was going to catch him and then take him outside,' he said in his statement to the police. 'But just as I dropped the box, The Rat pulled back, and the box landed on his little neck.' With his neck snapped like a twig The Rat is no more.

The female resident said she was 'relieved' and 'happy'. 'Now I dare go to the toilet again at night!'

The Rat will be buried on Sunday the 27th.

  2. Oh the pooor rat, but I hate them in my house too. We used to get them quite often in our last house, you could hear them in the walls. I'm so glad we were able to move out of the evil forest we used to live in.

    To get traffic it takes a lot of work, or in the beginning it did. I had to do a lot of social networking, at first I used Mom Bloggers Club and visited a lot of individual blogs and made some friends, but I also spent a lot of time in Entrecard. I see you have one too. Entrecard has helped a lot of my statistics.

    The best way to get more traffic without hosting giveaways is to leave comments on other blogs. Lots and lots of comments

  3. It reminds me of the Christmas book - "Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse" except you had a mouse or rat stirring on Christmas Eve!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog♥

  4. Ok, first, EW. Yay for the death of Mr. Rat! We have (I believe) a small visitor in our garage of the rodent variety and I am PRAYING that is a Mickey instead of a Remy.

    Your posts crack me up. Hope you had a good Christmas!
