Here we go again

Julie just brought home a mouse, and dropped it. Of course, it was totally unhurt and scuttled under the nearest bit of furniture. This was so much fun the last time. And hopefully it won’t take a week to finish like the time before that.

  1. CC released a live dove in the house once…it was pandemonium.

    Oh no! Our cats have just started going out a week ago and they’re proudly bringing back leaves, bits of fluff and bird feathers. I’m dreading the day they bring home a mouse or bird!

      Of my three, only one really goes all out for hunting, so maybe the odds are in your favor. Julus has always been super focused on prey – as a kitten we would play fetch the paper ball for hours on end.

    Yesterday morning I found a dead mouse upstairs. We’ll never know who did it. I once saw Lotus suffocate a mouse with his belly floof. My father rescued the mouse.

      Well, Julius just the instant you wrote caught a mouse. Not the right mouse, though.

      He carried a new mouse in, but I managed to get it before it escaped. It was a little more damaged, but it has its chance to recover outside.

    ha this is too funny! Most cats only get the chance to bring in live unhurt prey once. Your very tolerent. My four are very pathetic. A chipmunk accidently came in with the woodpile last winter. Imagine 4 cats all chasing the same little chipmunk. I call them pathetic because the odds were in their favor but still the chipmunk escaped unharmed a few days later.
