Cats & Their Toy Mice

Posted 2012.08.18 10.19 in Cats by Stephanie

I think it’s kind of cute that the cats tend to keep their toys all together. I’m sure it’s just coincidence or whatever, but they play with the toy mice then when they’re done playing, the toy mice all end up in a little group.

Except there was something… unusual about the collection of toy mice, this morning.

Maybe don’t read on, if you’re easily squicked out.

Yeah, one of these things is not like the others. One of these things is dead.

At first I was proud of them for putting away their toys when they were done. I mean, better that they’re in a group under the side-table, than strewn about the livingroom. Or tucked away in my shoes, for that matter.

Then I was a bit bothered about them leaving a dead mouse there.

Then I was ok with it again, because a) they didn’t just let it go in my bedroom, b) they didn’t let it go anywhere else, c) they killed it, and d) they didn’t stuff it in a shoe, under the sofa, or toss it into the laundry hamper.

So conclusion – good kitties.
