NEWSFLASH! I CAME BACK AROUND 1pm after a 2-hour abscence to the sight of something (I would ordinarily assume it was a mouse) pinging rapidly out of sight with a flash of white... ~ and there's the clue. Mice are dull all over. Robbies have bright white undercarriages. And even in "domesticated" states are far, far stealthier (not to mention speedier) than wild-born mice (how on earth the original batch was captured for the pet trade I've no idea. They must've set special traps to grab the trotting tubbies... Anyhow, after 48 hours of strictly no show whatsoever (not even a hint of her presence) to be quite honest I'd totally given up on ever seeing her again ~ alive or dead.
Tonight I have made a special part towel-covered (for easier grip) paperback book-built "stairway to heaven" (the haven of her former captivity)... nearby I have put out a plastic capful of water, a tiny number of seeds and a courgette (zucchini) slice. Courgettes take teethmarks very well, so if she bites, I shall know!
I'm hoping somehow ~ miraculously, if needs be ~ I'll wake up to find Fat Mommy Trotter fast asleep in her old lightbulb-box. Or perhaps peering out with balefully suspicious eyes: "yeah, mate I came home. Don't flatter yerself; it was these two I missed." Yeah, I know precisely what she'd tell me, if only she could talk...
And now back to the dreadful 1980s:~
Dynasty. Wasn't this TV gold..? Especially when the series' leading ladies got their claws into each other ~ literally. Alexis and Krystle Pond Catfight... View and enjoy. (PS Dubbed into German for further entertainment. Couldn't find an English version anyway...)

"Studio Catfight" has Alexis spitting at Krystle (what a vulgar spelling for a lovely name...) the immortal line: "it's not my fault you're barren"! Ooooh!!
