Of mice and … cats

Since I am ever eager to learn something new about writing, I signed up for a webinar on social media. Instagram and Pinterest, to be exact.

I had a Pinterest account. In fact, I had two. I guess I should say “have” because they are still there. I lost my password to one, tried to set up another account and was blocked because I am not the owner. Whaaat? After trying to communicate with the site  and getting no response, I gave up trying to post anything.

So I had a vested interest, so to speak, in learning more about it. Like, getting my password back.

The presenter was very knowledgeable and had a lot of good tips. However, I was distracted. Frenchy and Jack were having way too good a time playing with a toy. They were running and jumping. I looked up, trying to see which toy they were so entranced with.

Frenchy and her new “toy”

Then Frenchy dropped it and it ran. She pounced and paraded across the room and into the kitchen, proud of herself.

The penny dropped. She had a mouse in her jaws!

She came back into the den and let it go. Jack chased it, but she got ahead of him and grabbed it again. I was standing over her when she dropped it at my feet.

It was still alive and probably saying its little prayers when I grabbed it by the tail. I took it outside and let it go. It scampered off, no doubt ready to tell its family of its narrow escape.

Judging by the cats’ interest in the fireplace lately, I suspect it had come down the chimney.

So I didn’t learn anything from the webinar. Luckily, I can go back to the site and watch it again. Maybe I won’t be so distracted next time.
