This little guy wasn't the least bit interested in the tasty cheese morsel that was waiting for him on his nice little wooden dining table......its taste must be more refined

That picture is laugh out loud funny. I've done the mouse chase and I can never kill them either. The ones the cat has found have never been that lucky. I have to send that picture to my son, he will love it.

This is the second cat I've ever had. My first one used to catch them but she'd just lick the things to death......I think they actually had heartfailure from fright........she'd never eat them.

Trinket........well you can see she isn't going to put any more effort into doing anything she doesn't have to . She wakes up and eats then I put her up on top of our bed and she sleeps for like 9 hours straight then she'll get down and go eat and mossey back into the living room and hope on the couch or anyones lap that is around and clean herself and then pretty soon she's back asleep. I think if I timed it she'd be up a total of maybe 1 1/2 to 2 hours out of the day......very sassy and irritable if her sleep is disturbed. But she's the queen of the house and she rules .

Chase...... ......Trinkets chase is more of a quick step......but its quite comical because her belly sways back and forth when she walks and when she walks faster it really sways.


Picture:
Trinket doing what she does best. Note the eye that slightly opened......to say the least she was not too happy with me for disturbing her sleep .

The picture ( and story) are hilarious!!! My little one has been catching at least one mouse a day ( outside, thankfully).

Peanut Butter wrapped in a piece of cheese cloth works better than cheese.

Lol, Trinket is a doll!! She reminds me of Hobbes, the cat I had when I lived in Spain. The house had some mouse problem, but he was utterly useless, and the mice knew that, too!!

killer cat

I think I might have a topper - the other night we were sound asleep when our little black cat jumped on the foot of the bed. He seemed to playing with my feet, so I woke up. No, it was not my feet he was interested in...he had brought us a gift. A little field mouse that he had brought in through the cat door. Needless to say, he got evicted. I grabbed the mouse (very alive) by the tail and evicted him (her?) too.
