    One of ours killed a mouse today.

    Probably not in your own house!

    Make that one billion and one.

    Mine’s 20 now – didn’t kill anything last year as far as I’m aware, so hopefully the slaughter is over.

    Unless, of course, she falls asleep on top of a very elderly, slow mouse and suffocates it . . .

    My cat doesn’t know what a mouse is, except the one on the computer. She’s so clumsy she couldn’t catch anything.

    Part of the problem and also part of the solution?

    Thanks to my pet door, my cats can come and go as they please; so we get the best of both worlds: Freedom to roam and a house free of mice. Of course, I get “gifts” now and then as a thank you.

    It’s said that one out ot four cats are killers, and you only see evidence of ten percent of their kills. My little 6-pound Freckle-Faced Schmutz-Point Siamese is a great hunter, and keeps the vermin population down. Although one day, she brought in an unharmed full-grown sparrow into the house for show and tell – it was quite an adventure getting it to fly outside. Ever try to sneak up on a sparrow, let alone catch it without harming it? Very impressive!

    I trap and deposit all cats on my property at the local pound, cats kill birds, period!

    Of course cats are killers. Why the heck do people think we started keeping them around? We’re supposed to feel sorry for the mice and rats?

    What upsets me is when my cat captures a hummingbird! Mostly I’ve been lucky and saved the bird from the cat. (But it drives the cat nuts!)

    They’re called PETA and the HSUS. I don’t know where they supposedly got their stats, well other than pulling them out of their ass, but that’s where these supposed facts come from.

    Wouldn’t it be kinder to put something around your property to keep cats away? Pet stores sell cat repellent. Are you sure that a bird dumb enough to get caught by something that can’t fly really should stay in the gene pool?
