Tally another rodent
Most of my public internet trail recently has been about little girls, and Izzy has not been getting his proper attention.
Therefore, I should announce that this morning he presented for tagging his first mouse of the season. (Mouse hunting season in most of the states he’s lived in runs from September 1 to August 31.) This is his first mouse of his second decade of hunting.
I was thinking about his record today, and unless I’m forgetting some, of the six places we’ve lived with him, he’s caught mice in three, and in a fourth he caught three bats(!) which I count as mice with wings. He also caught a mouse once while visiting A’s parents, so I make his total somewhere around eight non-flying mice and three flying mice.
I have a hunch he’s not done in this house, either.
