100 Word Wednesday: Week 46

This week’s photo is so cute!

No-one was about, and he was curious.
Water he knew about, but white liquid? What was it, and what did it mean?
Tentatively he put his snout in the hole and sniffed.
It was pleasant, so he dipped in his tongue.
It tasted like nectar, sweet and tangy.
He drank some more.
Oh yes, he liked this. A lot.
He wasn’t greedy and there was enough to share.
He gave the signal and his friends came out from the bushes.
One by one they sampled this heavenly drink.

Tommy watched from his bedroom window.
Dad was right, mice liked milkshakes.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I don’t think of mice as being kind-hearted but this story shows the lighter side. Thank you so much for joining us this week šŸ™‚

    • I don’t mind mice, it’s rats I don’t like.

        Ha Ha! Rats are actually great pets – but of course, it’s one thing to have a pet and quite another to find a ‘wild’ one {or nest} in your home or path! Thank you again šŸ™‚

      • Rats used to visit the garden in the cottage but would never leave. Being out in the country, the last thing we wanted was a rat infestation, and the farm rats were bigger than some of the local cats!

      • bikurgurl says:

        Oh my goodness! I imagine that is true! How unsettling to find nests of rats, or other rodents, infesting your gardens, animals, and home. I think fondly of stories, like ‘The Rats of NIHM’ and their society under the rose bush; however, in real life? I agree: I don’t want that population in my yard and garden. Thankfully, no rats; unfortunately, I have moles galore in my gardens. We have active coyote and raptor populations in our neighborhood who are kept well fed on rodents of any size, but also a good number of cats and small dogs!

      • Moles eh? Hubby being a former molecatcher/pest controller, you might find it is only one or two and they are just digging new tunnels if some of the older ones have collapsed. Still, at least there is plenty of food for the predators.
        A friend had a pet rat called Gerald. He was quite cute, white with brown patches so I wasn’t too worried about him.

      • bikurgurl says:

        Ha! So true šŸ˜‰ I’ve found by having raised beds with chicken wire in the bottom keeps the majority of our garden food from infiltration. The rest of my garden beds I use a mounded system with lots of mulch. The molehills aren’t as obvious as my gardens fill in. It was much more obvious when we had a lawn full of grass! Rats are actually quite smart and make great pets if they are hand raised. Thank you for sharing about your friends pet, Gerald!! šŸ™‚
