my cat drowns mice-stuffed ones
thought I would give you cat people a chuckle... both of our cats Mulder and Itchy like to pretend that they are killing mice when they "drown" them in their water bowls. (The vet has confirmed this ) Thus, they haven't had a stuffed mouse in a while because it's gross to fish them out. Got one for free yesterday, and this is what happened to the poor mousey today

Oh my gosh! That's hilarious! I don't think my cat is that smart- she just disembowels her mice.

LOL! No doubt about it! Fortunately, they're not bringing them to you for your approval!

Cats are just morbid little critters, aren't they?

My cat goes with us to the trailer in the spring. We have a "vacation trailer" up north. She does not go outside at home here, but up at the trailer she likes to go on her leash and sit on the front deck.

One day in the early spring last year, a mouse happened to find it's way inside. I thought my poor pretty jet black cat was going to turn white. She actually HID behind ME!!! So much for the cat being the household protector!

The good news is, she does not drown her toy mice. She beats the hell out of them instead!

My cat is a wimpy cat , she's afraid of everything that moves. All of her toys are cared for and aligned in precision by her. She has toys that she's had since she was a baby because she refuses to "hurt" them, no biting, chewing or trying to tear them apart. Even lizards that get in the house just get stared at until one of us finds them and removes them. She thinks other animals are her friends and can't understand why the squirrels outside the screened porch say such nasty things to her when she's out there.
We fostered a little kitty a few years back and I gave him some of her toys. I had to replace the toys each day because that guy would tear 'em up.

Hey, is that What they are doing? Cause my "boy"(Baby Phat) he's about 8 years old, takes socks (I gave him a basket full when he was a kitten) out every night (some times we see him carrying them) and lays them all over his food bowl....Every morning there are about 3 - 4 "sock" laying on his bowls.....It is the most adorable thing, isn't it???? But my vet has always been stumped on why he does it.....Cheley

I got a kick out of the mousie in the water bowl!

Hmm...wonder if my crew is trying to tell me something? I though at first it was just a gift in my shoe, but maybe it was their way of sending the little guy to the gas chamber!

One of my cats does that, too - drows just about all of his toys, including those cardboard pull-tabs from food boxes. He'll also play fetch with "drowned" toys.

LOL, years ago I had a Master Mouser....got her a toy mouse covered with real fur when we moved to town. She immediately pounced on it, ripped it apart, and was truly P!$$ED that there was just a wooden form underneath. Wouldn't 'speak' to me for quite a bit!

Honestly, she did prefer to gather her own playthings. One of our neighbors in town almost never cut his grass, so she would just sit atop the fence til she spotted a mouse or rat deep in the weeds. Pure white and longhaired, she made an awesome sight launching herself into midair to drop on her prey from above.
