Luna caught a mouse again!!!!!!!

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
She is truely the mouser of the household and I love her dearly for it! But when she brings them to mom ALIVE and tries to jump on the bed with them, mom has a small heart attack and screams bloody murder sending shivers down the spine of people in the next county!!!!!!!!! Which causes her to run away in terror dropping her "present", WHICH in turn sends her "present" running for cover! Now it's our turn to get the mouse! So with the aid our three oh so helpful cats we are trying yet again to get a very much alive (and wanting to stay that way) mouse running under the chairs, and the table, and finally the couch again. Brad tips the couch and off the mouse goes, into the dinningroom with the cats in hot pursuit, cornering it under the table that the phone is on. So we (being the Mighty mouse hunters we are) each get a fish net and go to get the mouse from under the table. Nope the thing escapes and Luna gets it again, thankfully going into the kitchen with it, where it is easier to see on the bright floor. Does she kill it finally you ask? Heck no! that's to easy, she lets it go once again, and Brad smacks his net on it and thinks he has it but it starts to slip under the net so I plop my net on top of his and he( sorry this is gross) gets a box from the garbage and smashes it dead!
D**n cats! why can't mine kill their presents like everyone elses cats!?
One day awhile ago Twig and Rocket decided to play with a live snake in bed with Brad, Let me tell you I've never seen a man get out of bed so fast! I was rolling from laughing so hard! well tonight he got even!!!!!!

If it's any consolation, Fawn doesn't kill 'em before she brings 'em in either. We must be due for a prezzie -- haven't had one for a while.

LOL, I almost had a dead Hamster today. We came home after going to a few towns outside of ours and Robert had seen the hamster cage tipped over with the top off. I told him to look at the cats to make sure no blood was on them and after that we looked uder the couch and there was our big Syrian Hamster Fuzzy Lumpkins. he was pretty shooken up and wonld not say still. Poor guy, but nothing broken I just had to clip his hair around his bottom since it was gettign all matted up. It a long hair hamster.

We haven't had anything brought in for years, my two cats Lolly and Garfield used to catch mice and birds but none of my current cats do.

Last night Charlotte came into my bedroom while I was on the computer. I noticed she was carrying something in her mouth. I assumed it was a toy but I was only partially correct. She dropped a live mouse from her mouth!! I have been in my 2nd floor apartment for 6 years and have never seen a mouse until last night. However, I think I solved the mystery of why Charlotte and Izzie stare at the kitchen wallls. I think that is where the mouse has been living.

Anyway, after Charlotte dropped the mouse, my 7 month old kitten, Izzie, tracked down the mouse and caught it. She dropped it and then caught it again about 10 minutes later. Good news is the cats are fascinated by the mouse and it kept them in hunting mode for 2 hours!! Unfortunately, my mouse patrol doesn't use lethal force and I still have a mouse somewhere in the apartment.

I would seriously freak out if either of my boys brought me a mouse. I live in a second floor apartment so hopefully that won't happen anytime soon. (shudders)

However it whenever I see these threads it reminds me of one of the cats my parents while I was growing up. Tom was always bring live "gifts" to my parents, mice, birds, bats. He was quite the hunter, it was really cool to watch him in the back yard, a bird would swoop down too low and Tom would jump several feet in the air to catch it. It was funnier though when he'd bring a live bird in the house and my Dad would try to get the bird out of the hosue.

I live on the main floor of a VERY old brownstone walk up, so I get the odd mouse coming in through cracks, well, wherever (those little guys can fit through a crack smaller than the size of a dime!)...

Anyhow, even though I have strictly indoor "fancy" cats, do they ever KNOW what to do when they see a sadly unsuspecting mouse! I heard Mik wheezing the first time they cornered a mouse, he was THAT excited. It's the predatory instinct... what can you do?

Though they haven't brought me any living "presents", they tend to leave the newly deceased (RIP) right by the front door, where I'm sure to step on it when I get home from the office.

Ellie brought in a live pigeon on Sunday - carrying it by the neck, with its wings flapping. I managed to get it away from her, helped by two more growling and very excited cats, who thought we were all fighting for hte prey. Then I got the cats out on the staircase, by which time the poor bird had vanished somewhere in my living room and there were feathers everywhere. I finally traced it to a niche behind a plant, and managed to use s broom to get it out ont he balcony, and it flew away. I am not sure how badly it was damaged, but of course, it was probably doomed and I was copping out by letting it go. I am still vacuuming up feathers days later. Not to be outdone, Dushka brought in a vole next day, but at least it was already dead. She left it for me, having neatly skinned it, on the living room carpet.

yep, when I was growing up we had a cat that was allways bringing live presents into the house he was a big ginger cat called Harris and his fave presant was tiger snakes as we lived near a swamp,always caused plenty of exitement. Misty my cat now, has caught a bird and brought it into the house , but I got it of her and let it go but the cats arnt alloud out any more strickly inside cats.

The funniest live mouse story I have is one night my husband and I saw that Redford had something in his mouth. I said to my husband oh my he has a mouse. My husband said no we live in the suburbs. Well it was a mouse and when my husband went to investigate Redford dropped the mouse. As I laughed hysterically at my husband searching for the mouse with the three kids. (he screamed I am a farm girl and as long as it isn't a rat I am okay.) Well we couldn't find it. Now my husband is a chef and he was wearing his baggy chef pants and as he was leaving he was itching his leg and all of the sudden the mouse ran out of his pant leg and he screamed again. He left me laughing so hard I had to sit down.

If its any consolation, my cat brought a live snake in the house once after she escaped outside. And it was still ALIVE. Still makes my skin crawl.

One of the cats-I don;t know which had when I opened the kitchen door into the garage in the middle of the step a rabbits head. The head was facing the door. It was like a human placed it in that spot and in that position!! Creepy... Hunting season hasn't really started yet-too much snow.

Too funny! I'm not that bothered by mice either since I grew up in rural Alberta (though I don't like them when they're on the loose in my apartment) and I remember seeing MASSIVE numbers of field mice when I was a kid. When I see them now, they are already dead (RIP) thanks to my little predators.

The first cat we had named Buttons brought home a dead (thankfully) red Cardinal songbird for my father on Father's day and dropped it at his feet. There was at least 3 of us standing there so it was kind of strange she knew it was "his" day and he deserved a "present". Of course, as touching as that was my Father just would not get down there and eat the dang thing. I guess my Dad was a bit of a picky eater.

in Tyger's last year of life (about 16 years old), after a lifetime of not really being much of a hunter (I once saw him being chased by a bird...) he caught a mouse on two seperate occasions.

We'd come in to find him GNAWING in the middle of the living room. that was freaky...

Lol, Villy brought us her first present last saturday, a live mouse! My poor boyf spent ages chasing it while I stood on a chair! and Villy hid behind the t.v.!
After pulling the kitchen apart the tiny mouse dissappeared through a hole in the wall!
Villy was so proud of herself though, she acted as though she was ten feet tall all day!

Aren't they just so darling when they bring us live things? I think they do it just to see us run around like idiots and then laugh at us when they are alone!
Since that day, None of our kitties thankfully have brought us anything, live or dead. Hopefully meaning that there aren't any critters in our house that aren't supposed to be there. (either that or they just haven't been able to catch them yet )

These three have yet to chase any mice. Grissom chased the you know whats at the other apartment. Sorry, still can't talk about them. Bobo was quite a mouser, but preferred moles. Loved to rip their heads off and keep them as trophies.
