You know your life has gone pear-shaped when...

you have to do a google image search for 'weasel poop'.
Because of something you found in your kitchen.
Now, I have nothing against Weird, per se.  Weird is fine.  Weird makes life interesting.
But when you have to get a new Hav-a-Heart trap (because the old one is too big and still full of skunkiness), and set it up in the living room, life has become a wee bit too interesting.
And it's going to have to be a two-step process.  Step one is to set a baited mousetrap in the Hav-a-Heart, in order to catch a mouse, which will become the bait for the weasel.
Maybe I'll just pretend there's no weasel.  Everything is Perfectly Normal, here.
Or maybe I'll just accept that it's good to have a creature in the house who catches mice.  Our cat used to catch mice.  Nothing Weird about that.  There's just a tiny little invisible ferrety thing catching mice now, just like a cat.  Perfectly Normal.
Yeah.

 I swear, if Rod Serling shows up at the door, I'm going to slam it in his face.

Can you tame the weasel and keep it as a mouse-catcher?

You just said the weasel hadn't been seen again!!! Oh boy!

You have a very strange life.

I think Rod Serling would take a look at your house and run screaming the other way! I always love it when I see you've posted. I know I'm in for a good laugh. Aren't you glad your life is so entertaining?

I would keep the weasel. That way when you have visitors, and they hear/see/imagine anything odd, you can say offhandedly "Oh, that's just our invisible weasel."

Really, you've got a story straight out of James Thurber here!

The only issues I see with the weasel is house-training and your chickens.

Oh, and the possibility of it bringing in a mate and little weasels! Then you can become a weasel lady instead of a cat lady. LOL

A weasel in the house? What could possibly go wrong?

Cookie said...

First, it's one weasel. Then the weasel gets a girlfriend. Next thing you know, you're knitting baby surprise jackets for tiny little baby weasels. It's the circle of life...

Don't you have a local 12-year-old boy with a bb-gun?

I know, in the house... but how bad can it be?

I'm late to the party, but I need to say you're only allowed to keep the weasel if you can litter-box train it ;-)
