Natural born killer…. almost.

.

We had a little excitement here at Casa River the last time I took Dudley for a stroll. While rounding the corner of the garage his Lordship pounced… and came up with a mouse.

.

.

I hadn’t seen or heard it…. but His Royal Highness was on it like white on rice.

.

.

And yes, it was a violent attack.

.

.

Problem is, once the instinct to chase and catch faded…..

.

.

He had absolutely no idea what to do next… looking to me for guidance.

And while I normally save all captured creatures… we’ve been having a slight mouse issue. Winter’s coming and I’m sorry, but I don’t want the little devils nesting in my warm car or house…. so I instructed Lord Dudley Mountcatten to finish it.

The poor thing was mortally wounded and dragging his little back feet anyway.

In typical I will enjoy torturing you by tossing you into the air cat fashion, Mickey was flying to and fro.

.

.

But finally, the deed was done.

.

.

Live mice? Fun toys.

Dead, non moving no matter how much you bat at them, mice?

Kinda boring.

      1. Ah, he needs something fun to hunt. Try giving him a pipe cleaner, well, maybe half a pipe cleaner, preferably green. It isn’t a sure thing, 50/50 in my experience, but it resembles a snake, and many cats seem to have an instinctive hatred for snakes–no idea why.
        Anyway, they are like 20 for a buck at the Dollar Store, and they are better than any other cat toy I have found, except maybe a ping pong ball in a bathtub. But they are pretty cheap too. The bathtub is a bit more costly! They prefer a claw foot, if you can afford one.

      2. Ping pong in the bathtub sounds perfect. Right now his favorite toy is the top to a gallon of milk. I dropped it on the floor once and he pounced. Why do I waste my money on expensive toys? I dropped a frozen blueberry this morning and he had a blast.

      1. It reminds me of a documentary I watched of killer whales or orcas or something playing with a baby seal until it died. They were tossing it into the air back and forth until they killed it. It was really hard to watch but such as nature…

        The look on your cat was priceless though… 😀

  1. My Agnes does that. She’ll flip them around back and forth, bat at them, but she doesn’t eat them. What for? She knows she’s got food coming whenever she wants. She just plays with them for sport.

  2. Our cat ate a mouse once. The mouse had eaten rat poison. Which might explain why it was so easy to catch said mouse. Of course that meant our cat ate rat poison. No more rat poison around our house. What our cat went through? I wouldn’t wish that on any creature. Pest control people got reamed out. Of course our cat got reamed out in a different way. Too many memories on this one.

  3. Oh.Good.Lord.
    I will never – NEVER – again feel horrible for oversharing my propensity to, well, whatever.
    Because I don’t record murders.
    No.
    I hide the bodies in the backyard, properly Saran wrapped, never to be seen, mentioned, or blogged about again.
