First Catch!

By louisemorrisonsty
Well it was all drama in the new house today. As it is now winter all the little field mice are seeking shelter. Unfortunately it seems to be the shelter of our walls. At night all we could hear was their little feet scurrying along. So today the cats finally earned their keep. Morgan is a veteran of mousing and is adept at catching and killing them and taking them outside. Clio, however, has never seen a live mouse. It was almost as if she was proving to Morgan she could catch one too, but killing them was not on her agenda. She played with the poor thing for half an hour while i chased her (and took pics). Finally I managed to get it off her. Anyways sorry for the huge story but got carried away. Thought i would share the pics. If the images offend then im sorry, but its nature.

Not at all offended. It's just cats doing what cats do Smile Two beautiful cats and I'm glad you got carried away as I enjoyed your story too. You're just lucky you didn't suffer the same experience as my son who saved a field mouse from their cat to get bitten by the mouse. There's gratitude for you Smile
