Well, the mouse either got back in or this is a second mouse. Andrew discovered it one morning on the kid's art table. Chili caught this one while we were sleeping and placed it exactly like this on the table, I suppose as a gift to the kids. I think our cat has a sense of humor because notice the book. Maybe Chili wanted Christina to feel a REAL animal. Hopefully we will have no more mice. They don't stand a chance anyway with our cat. As for Chili, she deserves a few extra treats.
