Cat and Mouse(trap), a house story

Our friend Veronica submitted the first house story via this website.  Thank you Veronica.  This story is actually a prize winning story that Veronica retold at our 1999-2000 New Year’s Eve party.  She won “best story with the house as a central character” for her account of "Marietta the Cat’s Encounter with a Mouse Trap.”  Veronica is such a great story teller and actress that we do need to get her on video.  Only those of us who know her can picture her acting as Marietta the cat which is, indeed, how she walked home with the prize over five years ago.

My suspicion is that most people think their stories are too mundane to retell.  But as my friend writes her stories, let me tell you some of the tidbits that we may find in them:
