Vasco Update



Vasco the kitty (full name: Vasco T. Kitty-Cat. The "T" stands for "travieso," which means "troublemaker") has been growing bigger and bigger, though he has managed to retain all of his kittenly cuteness. Among his new favorite things to do: sit on the (heated) floor in the kitchen, watching for mice. We have at least one uninvited new Menagerie member whom we occasionally hear scurrying about. I actually saw him one morning in the kitchen. Last night, Vasco caught him (we'll see if there are more), around 1 a.m., and brought him into the bedroom. Presumably he wanted to show off his hunting skill. He did not want to give the mouse up, but I eventually pried it from his jaws and threw it out of the house. When I went to check a few minutes later, the mouse was gone, apparently having survived his capture. Here's hoping he finds another house to settle in....

Anyway, here are a few Vasco pictures from recent weeks.

Does Halloween count as "recent weeks"? Ugh, it's been a while...


There's a lot of bed-stealing in our Menagerie: Moose loves to sleep in Lucy's bed upstairs, Lucy prefers Moose's downstairs bed, and Vasco likes all the dog beds. And neither Moose nor Lucy will do anything to roust him from their bed, except look sadly at us.... So here's Vasco occupying Lucy's bed.


And here he is in ultra-cute "why did you wake me up?" pose in Moose's bed.


And finally, taking a ride on Eric's shoulders. He enjoys climbing humans...

I think maybe Vasco could be a less good hunter. Last night, for the second night in a row, he chased a mouse into the bedroom at 1.30am and caught it shortly thereafter. I mean, it's good he's catching mice. But does he have to chase them/bring them to our bedroom???? When we're trying to you know sleep?
