Poor Little Guy

Aw I just had a horrible experience πŸ™ I opened the restaurant this morning at 6am and so it was still sort of dark out. When I opened the front doors, there was a little mouse just outside the door. He wasn’t really moving. I gave him a little nudge so he would run away and not get trampled when the first customers came in. But he didn’t run away, he just writhed as if he were in pain. Poor little mouse. He must have swallowed some poison the are in the mouse traps around the building. Well I couldn’t just leave him there because customers would see him. So I got a dust pan and put him in it and put him into the bushes to die πŸ˜₯ I know he’s just a tiny little mouse, but I was just so heartbroken looking at the thing squirming around in pain. I hate to see helpless animals/creatures suffer. For example, the movie Eight Below had me bawling the entire time. It was a wonderful movie but I’ll never be able to watch it again because it was so sad.

Anyway other than that poor mouse, I’ve been busy working, going to the gym, watching movies and cross stitching, I saw Charlie St. Cloud (which wasn’t very good but there was good Zac Efron eye candy) and Dinner For Schmucks (which was hilarious and full of Paul Rudd goodness). Tonight I am going to see The Kids Are Alright tonight so hopefully that will be a good one πŸ™‚

    Aww, I’m just like you! The first times our cats caught mice and played with them I tried to rescue the mice by shooing away our cats and chasing the mice into the bushes 😳 I even get a little sad if I kill bugs, lol! I would definitely be heartbroken as well, even though they’re “only animals”, they’re still living!

    Poor little mouse! I would have done the same thing, actually. I couldn’t ever bring myself to “put it out of its misery”, it seems too horrible of a task for me to even contemplate!

    I’m glad you thought Dinner for Schmucks was good! I’ve been wanting to see that. πŸ˜‰

    I have a soft spot for animals as well. I had an experience once when my cat brought home a chipmunk, but fortunately he was fine. Eight Below made me cry as well – a great movie, but so sad. I’m actually curious about seeing Dinner for Schmucks, since I really liked the French movie it’s based on.

    I so want to see Dinner For Schmucks! Zach Galifianakis is both hilarious and hot!
