What the?!

This morning, the sun was shining...(cue: birds chirping and happy piano music)
I opened the curtains by the bed and rejoiced.
Amen! 
We've had the coldest, wettest 2 months of spring ever and when the sun does
come out, believe my I am overjoyed.
 I slip on the slippers by the bedside and my mind is already
busy with plans outside in the garden...
As I come around the foot of the bed WITHOUT MY GLASSES,
I see a little cat toy and give the 'ball' a little kick...
(cue: screeching tires to a halt sound)
 WAIT A SECOND!
That's not a cat toy!
Well not MY kind of cat toy.
Not a ball.
But this..
WARNING! NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART!
Yup. That's a mouse head.
Just the head.
All body parts are unaccountable for.
I've looked in all the regular hiding spots but just this...
Time to round up The Usual Suspects.
Which amounts to 1.
"Yeah! You! In the black and white! Get down here!"
"Who me? I'm just an innocent house cat!"
"Yeah, but what about that mouse head you left, conveniently in my footpath?!"
"That? That was a gift to let you know how much I love you!"
"Oh...yeah...right...um thanks."
"Just doin' my job mam."

I know this is cat normal, and I adore cats, but I would be sick all day!

Cats will be cats! Go kitties!
