I wonder if Babs and Matt
Have a cat?
I hadn't thought
Jonny's comment on my last post made me think about the politics of hostage-taking among mice, although he neglected to elaborate on how the cat factored into things:
"Oh, the torment of capture, always wondering if the Mice will trade human prisoners or, as in this case, political favors."
Careful, Lucky Mouse. The cat is an unknown, as are his aspirations, political or otherwise. I suggest blackmail.
