The CIA (Cat Intelligence Agency) may have a Mole. As hard as this is to believe, but based on recent activities and sightings, the consensus is that a Mole may very well have infiltrated one of the most secretive and powerful agencies in existence, the CIA. Friends this is not to be taken lightly.
As recently as this past weekend at blogpaws, I had a near incident with my own mom. I sent Flat Gracey and my mom to attend the pet event of the year known as blogpaws, being held at Tysons Corner, VA. Everything was going just perfect until my mom won a session from Temptations with Sonya Fitzpatrick, the Animal Communicator! (These are one of the treats that my brother Mercy chomps and he says they are very tasty.) My mom was super excited. She has wanted to talk to Sonya Fitzpatrick ever since the raccoon fell through the ceiling above my chow chomping area. But this was just too risky for me!
As you can see, plain as day, even a Mole can see, it says boldly,
WHAT DO CATS REALLY THINK? Find out and get to know your cat better.
I quickly demanded that she return home early from blogpaws and I blamed it on Hurricane Irene! That was super convenient to have a storm blowing up the east coast at the same time this feline fiasco was about to take place. My mom was super disappointed not being able to meet Sonya but I took an extra long nap I was so relieved.
Now we must find this Mole. As a Cat you know it is better to not waste time twitching our whiskers, swinging our tails or hissing about how this could have happened. Even worse, it is not the time to take swipes at one another trying to find out who let the Mole into our inner circle. But rather it is time to band together to try and find this Mole and kindly escort the Talpidae back out where he/she belongs burrowing into it’s own business.
Our work is cut out for us Friends. As you know we control the minds of our cat parents. If too much feline knowledge were to penetrate the meninges surrounding their brains, we could be in for a world of, dare I say it…living like dogs! Can you just imagine a life of Cat Obedience Training, drooling and worse yet…smelling really stinky after you have been outside? The horror!
I apologize if this scares you but as you know, this is super serious!
Here are the signs to look for with your parents that might indicate the presence of the Mole:
- When you stare at the ceiling, your parent now knows what you are watching!
- When you are hiding, they find you within 5 minutes!
- They know that if we really wanted to, we would keep all the litter inside the pan!
- When we break something by accident, they KNOW when it was not an accident!
If one or more of these condition is present in your habitat, you may be unwittingly harboring a Mole! Here is what to look for around your home.
How to identify a Mole!
Moles are very good at digging up dirt! If you see small piles of dirt in your yard surrounding your habitat there is a good chance you have a Mole. We have this type of activity down by the big pines, far away from the sunroom. Bad Kitty is certain that the neighborhood cat patrol is keeping a watch on them.
As we know, if Cats had thumbs we would most certainly already be ruling the world, so here is the super spooky part. The Moles have polydactyl hands and each hand has an extra thumb known as a prepollex next to the regular thumb. Holy Cat! That is how they are able to maneuver so quickly.
Don’t be mesmerized by their velvety brown shiny fur. At first you will think that fur this luxorious and beutiful
could only belong to a member of the Felidae family . But look closely and you will find the mole’s pelt is very dense and short with no one growth direction to lessen friction while burrowing. The Mole has hairs on their noses like our whiskers that help them feel their way around. And even if the moles do not have external ears, they can hear quite well and are adept at understanding their surroundings by interpreting vibrations.
Now this is super important!! The Mole is harmless to our humans! If you see evidence of Moles in your yard, try not to make a mountain out of the molehill. The damage caused by moles to yards is almost entirely visual. There is no need to poison or whack a mole! All you need to do is direct your parent out into the yard to remove the earth of the molehills when they pop up. This will leave the moles permanent galleries to continue their existence underground. In other words, just let the Moles be Moles. That way they will be happy digging their own dirt and not threatening to expose our secrets.
Thank you Friends, and best of luck redirecting the Mole if you should happen to meet one.
Remember to care for all creatures, big and small.
