Moosey found her a mousey
Last night Moosey was acting very strange. She was biting and mean and was very thirsty. She was playful in the way that a demon would be playful.
4am this morning I wake up to the Moose scratching around and acting generally crazier than normal. I get up to take away what ever toy or paper she is playing with and when I pick it up I realize it is warm and squishy but not wet.
I threw it down on the ground and knew it was a mouse without having the lights on. After stopping my boyfriend's laughing, I washed my hands and turned on the lights. I find a tiny little gray mouse looking dead on the floor but still twitching and a very chubs black and white cat looking pleased with herself. I grabbed the mouse with a paper towel and set it outside. I gave Moosey treats to let her know she did a good job, even though my heart was broken for the little mouse. I am a sucker for all things little and cute. When I went out this morning, the little baby was dead.
My question is, do cats usually eat the mice they catch or do they leave it as a "present"? We haven't had mice before, but I saw an exterminator at the house down the street a few days ago and I am thinking the mice are moving down the street.
If she finds another mouse and eats it, will it be okay or will it be bad for her? I am going to get some humane traps for the little buggers, because I couldn't imagine killing them.
She was very pleased with herself.
