    Outwitted by a small, black cat called Elsa.

    By Waspie_Dwarf

    I have a small, black cat named Elsa. She is good company, generally very quiet and very well natured (although not always so well behaved). We are, however, in a battle of wits over a chair, and I think I am losing. A few weeks ago a relative of mine moved and had more chairs than was strictly necessary for her smaller flat. The chairs are much newer than the ones I had and so she gave them to me. That is where the battle started. Initially Elsa was happy to claim a chair of her

The Challenge

The Challenge Accept the Challenge I am Facing. It may become my greatest gift. -Gail B. When life runs smoothly, I tend to become less focused and alert to what is happening inside me.  Perhaps when things are ‘just so’, I fall into a sort of half-sleep: routine can be soothing and numbing.  If there is no itch, there is no need to scratch.  However, life is set up in such a way, that I will be awakened.  When that happens, the shock, pain, or even in some cases dissatisfaction pus

Is the Internet Forever?

IS THE INTERNET FOREVER? Paul Dale Roberts, HPI's Esoteric Detective Sacramento Paranormal Investigations Halo Paranormal Investigations I am not a scientist, but I am definitely a nerd that loves to read a lot.  Recently I had a friend ask me...."Paul, is the internet forever?"  My answer, well, technically "yes".  Energy can't be created or destroyed.  So, if the Internet is pure energy, it can't be destroyed.  The waves that carry signals for the internet are the same kind of waves used

Walking On Thin Ice

Walking On Thin Ice Walking The spiritual life is not about ‘dressing up’, though it can often be that for a while. No, our seeking after the Infinite, is, in fact, a ‘dressing-down’. It is about falling through the cracks in the ice, that thin layer that hides the often-brutal unconscious from my sanitized, self-serving thoughts about myself. I cannot go very deep unless I face what is dangerous to myself. Not only myself but others as well. The news is full of stories when someone fal

Do Not Be Discouraged   “Why do you grow weary of doing good to others? Am I not in them? Would you ever grow weary of helping Me if I were near you? You would help Me joyously, lovingly.

Waspie v the mice (round 3)

No declaration of victory today, I learnt that lesson yesterday, but mouse 2 has been caught and released into the wild.  Worryingly I think I can still hear something.  I hope it'sjust my mind playing tricks otherwise this war may be more attritional than I originally suspected. Still I have my secret weapon now... a humane trap baited with dry pasta and cheesy cat treats. Elsa, the cat, has proved no use at all. She's mostly outside while the mice are inside AND she's the one th

Waspie v the mice (round 2)

It seems that I declared victory in the mouse war prematurely.  Just after catching the first mouse Elsa had another bout of acting strangely. I initially thought that she had caught a second mouse but then dismissed this and concluded she was simply chasing the first. My first suspicion was correct, I have not won the war, simply the battle. There are two of them. I have to know hope that the mice are the same gender.

Waspie v the mouse

Around 2 months ago my cat, Elsa, brought in a live mouse and released it in the house, This is not the first time she has done this, but previously I had always been able to catch the mouse and release it. Not this time, it escaped and has been living here, rent free, ever since. The mouse has mostly been living on cat food, creeping out at night whilst the cat is out, and stealing Elsa's food. This annoyed me (although I'm not sure Elsa cared, or even noticed). Mu annoyance turned to fury
