My mom discovered a stash of seeds and stuff from the bird feeder in her sunroom, and she just told me she discovered a "backup" stash in one of her shoes :lol:

No idea how anything is getting into the sunroom-there are no holes that they can find, and they don't leave the outside door open.
Has to be a mouse. It can get into the house through a hole as small as a dime. She could set out a live trap to catch and remove it but if you don’t find and plug the hole it will be back.

That was my thought, susanm9006 susanm9006 ! Great minds think alike...or possibly mousebrains!
My first thought was a chipmunk. They have stashes in multiple places.

It must be mouse “season.” Last night my cat howled that hairaising, bloodcurdling primal cry, meaning only one thing: a victorious hunt! “Good kitty,” I mumbled sleepily. He showed it to me, and -thankfully- did not share this time.

Not all cats will kill mice. My former girl totally ignored them when they came in by the dozens to feast on her Worlds Best corn litter. And weeks ago I went down the basement and Lola, formerly my mothers cat and infamous mouse killer, was sitting upright looking at me. And sitting six inches from her was a mouse, looking healthy and quite calm. Lola paid it no attention and just sat there, as did the mouse, while I ran up to get my “grabbers” to pick it up. I though the mouse would run when I came near but it let me pick it up and take it outdoors. I don’t know, maybe Lola considers herself retired from the mousing business or has adopted a live and let live attitude.

Felix hasn't been able to groom himself because of his cone so his fur is very dirty looking. I'm wondering if I can take it off and give him a bath. The cone also needs a wash too.
Yes, I would take it off at least for a few hours to him him a break and time for a wash. I wouldn’t stress him with a bath though. Take a washcloth, wet it in medium warm water and rub him down where he seems dirty. He will take care of the rest.

Biopsy results came back that the tiny tumor on his left side is benign but the one on the right is mast cell confirmed. The lab told him that it doesn't appear that all of it was removed and that there might still be a small piece left. But the doctor said he did his best to remove it and he thought he got all of it. So apparently all we can do now is monitor him. :sigh:

Lolol, I tried to melt cheese on noodles for J to test and she if she can handle it, and she picked the cheese off. 🤦‍♀️

I'm going to add almond milk to it tomorrow and make it saucier and see if that helps.

I mainly play Animal Crossing on it, which doesn't take much battery. Most of the drainage seems to be happening when I'm *not* using it.
How do you play animal crossing on an iPad? I got animal crossing a few weeks ago but I can only play on my boyfriends switch but my mom has an iPad.
