This last weekend Nadine and I went up to our cottage in Flagstaff and worked all day on winterizing it before the cold and snow comes. What we found when we looked in our pantry was a mouse that had been caught in our trap that was set a couple of weeks earlier. We had guessed that the mice were up to something as the peanuts were opened and the nuts taken out. The plastic wrap around our spaghetti had been opened and a hole had been nibbled on the top of the vegetable oil container. As we took the trap out to the trash barrel, our little Monty became interested. Sometimes a picture is truly worth a 1000 words.
Monty had obviously never seen or smelled a mouse and reacted quite differently than a cat would have. He sniffed the mouse and then started backing off from it. He wanted nothing to do with this little varmint. He backed away from it twice before we threw the mouse in the trash can.
Sometimes on this journey we get a humorous experience to lighten our day. God’s creatures can do that at times.
