Mice.... and even more mice

Sat Nov 10, 2012, 5:04 AM

Oh the joys of living with a cat.

I am used to finding mice in front of my door and in my garden... brought to me by my cat Hektor.

It is rather new though that he brings them inside.... which would also be no problem if they actually were.... dead. They are not however. So imagine all the fun he is having with them - inmidst my living room! Imagine me throwing away their dead bodies, often with missing body parts... Imagine me wiping away their blood and collectiong mouse-pieces.... imagine me doing this at 2am or right when I came home from work.... No fun, I tell you.... but I can loive with that.... because I love hektor and his gifts are the ultimate expression of his love for me. Yes, I understand that.

Last night however... he went a step to far.... guess where he threw a living mouse at.... he brought it into my bed! Can you imagine, Mavrosh squeeking like a pig, jumping out of her bed while the poor little creature tried to rescue itself under my blanket...

To make a long story short - Hektor lost his interest into the mouse after a while which caused that it dissappeared somewhere in my apartment, I could not sleep bevcause of that but also I could not find the cute beast. I even called a friend, we searched for it together and after we saw a dead mouse right in front of my window, we thought, there you go, this is it.

But this was not it. The little thing inside my apartment was caught today, as it tried to steal some cat food. I knew my cat was outside so hearing this noise of an eating animal told me - intruder alert!

So yeah.... mice.... and as a result - two sleepless people, two dead mice and a cat who does not understand that his precious gifts do not belong underneath my blanket while I wish to sleep. While last night I was not amused at all, I now laugh out loud when I think about this!

:D Mav! I am so bad at keeping up on dA, I'm glad everything worked out with you and Hektor ^_^ My cats bring in pigeons, magpies, and once even a crow. Its the squirrels that cause the most trouble though... thats the nature of cats I guess!

Ah....of mice, women and cats. I used to have a cat that'd do that. Only the mice wound up feeding the pet snake I rescued from my kid brother! :hug: for Mavrosh & friend! Scritchies for Hektor...

The mother of my ex-boyfriend also had a story.. Her cat had caught a mouse, and brought it into the house, keeping it in her mouth and going to Mutti. She cried, and said ' take it away!" The cat thought that she had made something wrong, she was a bit scared and confused, so in that moment she threw the mouse to the floor and ran away. Mutti (even I called her that) had to catch it and throw it out. And she was afraid of mice. :D So yes. Cats and their generous presents:D:D

I'm glad, that now you can laugh at your evening:) It is a funny story if you are not half-sleep. :) :hug: for You and for your Hector! =)

We used to get a cat because we had mice in the basement area and we couldnīt rid of them, later few of our cats did the same thing who were adopted from the streets.

I canīt count on my hands how many times we tried to rescue their still living prey (usually when it was birds) as we felt sorry for the poor prey. Since we rescued their gifts they stopped doing that. I still canīt forget the bird legs I found under my bed, that made me feel a bit odd =P

WOW! He's a really awesome mouser. My cats can't catch anything. They wouldn't know what to do if they DID catch a mouse. But, I wouldn't like having to share my bed with a living little mouse. Poor thing, talk about a fright for both of you!

I'm glad you have so much patience. Hektor couldn't have picked a better person. I just hope things work out for you and him so you are both happy and healthy. *hugs* I hope the allergy problems aren't too bad.

He also must really love you. XD

Hahaha :P
My cat never does that. He eats them. Birds and mice alike, we find only bloodstains and/or feathers... but he doesn't eat magpies, so they're left lying around.

Oh! I wish you the best for this. I know he's being a dear trying to share things but perhaps he should leave them outside? He does sound like a sweet guy though.
