Ringo has been a busy kitty the past few days. He has surprised us by catching three mice in the house (likely the basement). Two of the mice, sadly, were already dead but the third one was still alive so Jim took it outside for release.
Oddly, Ringo had no interest in eating his catch, only to play with them. In fact, one of the dead mice was very wet from his licking it.
We debated showing you a photo with one of the mice. . .and ultimately, we won't share a photo. We know it might upset some people. While I'm not crazy about the dead mice, I also know a) they are carnivores and b) it's instinct to hunt.
I've lived here 19 years and in that time, no cat has ever caught a mouse. Ringo is on the hunt now and I'm sure he won't stop until the house is free from critters!
