Cats On Tuesday: Recyclable Mouse

Au and  his pet mouseA short while ago Au was trotting around the house with a tiny field mouse in his mouth. He disappeared into the garden, came home later without it, and we assumed the poor little thing had been dispatched.

Then he brought it in again, but through one thing and another it escaped. Then he caught it for a third time.

When the house tiger brings in the same catch three days running, we begin to ponder the existence of the recyclable mouse. Or perhaps Au wants a pet?

And here they are: Au and his pet mouse.

Nothing better than a good game of catch!!!

That's funny! Sometimes I think cats like to play with a mouse rather than eating it. Poor little mouse I sort of hope he escapes for good.

Neri said...

maybe au and the mouse has a deal... hehehe.

We like our 'restuffable' catnip mice, but we know...that's not the same, hahameow.

You were asking about the food that Disco is on. It is a new company, June 2010 and we are not sure they ship overseas yet, but here is the link to their website, so you can learn more about it.

Our Teri thinks Nulo and Life's Abundance are the best foods out there currently.

Mr Puddy said...

Oh that was funny! I used to have to live thru similar episodes with my Robin who was black..and at dark, she wanted in if we had not already brought her in for the night. And frequently when she tapped the window with her paw, we just opened the door to our peril. Live mice, and small snakes were our reward.

Hehehe! Lucky 3rd time!! We feel a bit bad for the mousie, but only a little bit...
Mawhawhaw!

BeadedTail said...

Maybe Au just wants to play games with the mouse and not hurt it. He's such a nice Mancat!

The Chair Speaks said...

Looks like quite a fat mouse! Did Au share some of his food with mousie friend?

Katnip Lounge said...

Mister Mouse would only make ONE visit to our house, just sayin'!

Maybe the mouse is indestructible. Like Bruce Willis or that cheerleader from "Heroes".

Third time's a charm! Play time with mousies and rats is so much fun!

Purrrs,

Poor Little Mouse! I am surprised he didn't die of a heart attack after the second time! Chloe's favourite toy is a squeaking mouse. She clutches him to her chest when she sleeps. We've named her mouse "Mousey Dong", because he looked like a dimunitive communist to us.

Keiko said...

Hiii Ellen we just got your book from Pet Epicure!!! We are staying there in a few weeks time when Mummy and Daddy go away for a week!!!
Purrrrr

Hannah and Lucy said...

As far as mum is aware we haven't caught any mice yet but we think she'd go mental if we brought the same one in over and over again - a bit like groundhog day!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

WEll, it sounds like he just wanted a pet to us!

Cezar and Léia said...

BRAVO Au! very well done my friend! hehhehe fabulous shot!
Luna - WE LOVE LUNA

That would be rather cute and interesting if Au just wants a pet mouse!

Eric and Flynn said...

That is a very silly mouse to keep getting caught. I like to kill my mousies right away then sometimes I eat them, and sometimes I give them to Eric to play with.

Dora said...

Same catch? Or is it another one? Mice look so much the same and hard to differentiate them leh. ;p

You have pets, so Au wants a pet, too! Just thank your lucky stars that he hasn't decided to bring it indoors and keep it next to his bed. At least, not yet. :)
