So- my cat Tumbles has been deeply interested in the goings on in the kitchen- especially the cabinets. Once we did see a mouse in there but when it was not seen again we assumed they had moved on....well, at least moved to a new room. Recently I discovered they had eaten their way into my bag of flour
He has been interested lately again and spending alot of time in the kitchen-and I guess it paid off. Today my sons came home from school and found the freshly dead body of an adult mouse in the living room-
I guess he is doing his job- my dear little cat-but I still feel for the little furry.
Turns out he killed a mommy mouse- because the next thing the boys found was a baby mouse hiding in the living room by the bookshelf-so they put in a container and gave it bread and water and tissue to hide in...and they are searching the house for more-
I can't just throw him out in the freezing cold- so he will be boarding with us for a while. Figure I will let him free in the spring- might have to pop for a small rodent home for him though.
