More Excitement

Last night I was trying to get some rest when suddenly it sounded like the house was being torn apart by a squeaky toy.

This guy.


R.B. Forbes, U.S. Dept. Agriculture

Turns out Bugs had driven Mr. Packrat under the recliner, where I caught sight of his little face, all big ears and button eyes. As I am still helpless, I called the landlord and he rushed over with his wife and two boys. Excitement all around. We threw Bugs in the carrier and Barney in the box-room and we hustled Mr. Packrat out the front door in short order.

Wikipedia says packrats like shiny objects and will “trade up” to get these. This accounts for the joke that a man found his dime replaced by two nickels.

Considering that Mr. Packrat traces his ancestry back to the late Cenozoic, he was probably entitled to more respect than we showed him.

Anita loves cats. This must be because she, too, has had nine lives. She’s been dancing since she could walk, she was a commercial artist and advertising producer, she earned a third-degree black belt in Aikido, she is a drummer with the Afrique Aya Dance Company, she is an attorney, and she’s a meditator and a devoted student of Nonviolent Communication. She also spent one lifetime sidelined with a devastating back injury in 1992. Since then – FELDENKRAIS METHOD® to the rescue. The FELDENKRAIS METHOD is all about dreaming concretely – thinking intelligently and independently by way of a gracious and kind physicality. The work affords all who study it a process by which to reach, with movement, into the mind and the heart, to make nine lives into one whole being.

    What a cute little guy! I bet I could have had fun with him. I found a rat for my human a couple of weeks ago. We coaxed the little critter into a container, and my human took her away… from what I gather, really far away!
