Conversation overheard between Eli and... uh... himself.
"Here comes Rosie!"
"She has something in her mouth!"
"It's a mouse! It's a big mouse!"
"She's carrying it in her MOUTH!"
"She put it down!"
"She's licking it! Now she's EATING it!"
"She's eating the head!...The head is all gone! She ate the WHOLE head!"
"Now she's eating the rest of it!"
"She ate the WHOLE mouse! Eeeuuw! That's gross!"
Later he brought the kitty inside and they were playing. Rosie made Eli mad and he told me that he doesn't like her, and doesn't want her to live with us anymore. I told him if we get rid of the kitty, he'll have to catch mice with his mouth and eat them.
He was quiet for a long time.
Then he told me that he "changed how his mind was". I guess he loves her.
(That Rosie is so darn photogenic!)
