stupid cats have a mouse cornered & haven't a clue what to do
they keep looking at me for help. So I set a peanutbutter trap or two or three. How's your morning going? :hi:

1. my cat is a very efficient mouser
we've only had mice once, when a nest matured (apparently). Over a week, he killed one basically every day. Then no more since then, and that was a year ago :shrug:

now he just hunts flies

6. The late, great Ari used to catch mice while I was at work,
and leave the remains--usually the head, spine and tail--on the door mat for me to find when I got home. Sometimes I found them by stepping on them. :(

2. Hey, at least they didn't catch it, bring it to you
ALIVE

and put it on your bare foot while you were asleep in the bed. That's what Yogi did. Domino chased it down and swatted it until it was weak then, Yogi grabbed it, and brought its squealing mauled half dead body to me. It was still alive enough to scratch my foot when I woke up.

Talk about a wake up call. :wow:
