II .Page 2A - The News - Friday, January 19, 2018 By Kri Special l Loretta Humble Loretta 's What? The mouse was cold By Loretta Humble Special to The News MALAKOFF-Wow. I woke up to snow this morning. I was going to take off from col- umn duty this week, since Kristi is going to be writing about a little adventure we had, but snow makes me want to snuggle up in my warm little house and commu- nicate. It also makes me want to cook big pots of soup, but I made chicken soup yesterday and a huge pot of hamburger soup last week which fed us "for days. So I'll have to settle for a pot roast cooked with so many vegetables you have to dig to find the roast. And ,for the communicating part, I want to start by griping about the cat. He brought another "mouse into the house and turned it loose. I don't know what to do about this. We totally love the cat. He makes us laugh 'all the time. He seems more affectionate than most cats, but only on his terms. He bestows love, how and when he chooses. He does the same with mice. Sometimes he catches them in the house and actually kills them, usually leaving their little bodies in the middle of the living room floor. But once he put one in his food dish and'ate it in two sittings. We used to think he I am considering more :.was helping us with our drastic matters.

Then we headed back home where we continue to pretend to be snowed in. Now, the cat sits look- ing out the window, and Kelly as usual is provid- ing us with the entertain- ment.
