"One evening my granddaughter, she was about four years old then, were
playing in the room with all her toys. Needless to say, they were all
animal toys like “My Little Ponies” etc. One of the soft toys that she
was playing with was a stuffed green mouse. It had a string that you
could pull to make it wriggle so that it looked as if it was alive.
“Uiltjie” was sitting in the one corner, on top of one of his perches,
and was watching her closely. I jokingly warned her that he was going to
catch her animals, never actually thinking that he would really do so.
The next moment he swooped down from his perch and grabbed this green
stuffed mouse and, much to her dismay, flew away with it. He went and
sat on top of an old computer screen that was standing on top of a shelf
and began examining this strange mouse."
