"Bitzy you worry too much. Life's too short to be fretting all the time. Relax and live a little," returned Mr. Mouse.
"Well, if you don't care, maybe I shouldn't either. Why should I be left to raise Eenie, Meeny, Miney and Moe without you? Maybe I should start stealing too and if I break my neck, it'll be your fault. Then maybe you'll be sorry!" Bitzy railed on and on only to realize Itsy's gentle snoring accompanied his after-dinner nap.
Angrily Bitzy stomped out of the haven of their immaculate home in search of the nearest mousetrap challenge. She couldn't match Itsy's legendary ability to steal cheese from mousetraps yet annoyance drove her on.
A sudden blur of white fur announced the untimely arrival of the feline foe. Instinctively she raced for cover but not before the cat's claw raked her fleeing backside. Silently she slunk to the far end of their abode, preparing to lick her wounds in shamed silence. At Itzy's approach she shrank further into the shadowy corner. But as he neared she read only concerned love in his eyes.
"Dearest Bitzy" he soothed." I'm sorry I upset you. Don't do anything so reckless like that again. I promise I'll cut down on my cheese consumption if it means that much to you." He snuggled close to assist her in licking the torn flesh.
