Isn't that ever hilarious to have the privilege to watch a kitty with her first encounter....I can only imagine how her little heart was in over drive..and dreaming of the one that got away all night:))
Perhaps a Fathers Day gift is in the works for today???....
In many ways, Teia is still a big kitten discovering the world and what it contains, still learning how to use her own body...she's definitely a personality and a half. I am so glad we gave her the chance.
My Akira goes on like that whenever we spot a house spider. Those things get huge! We don't get dangerous spiders where I live, so I'm comfortable letting Akira just go for it with those creepy things. She ate the first one she caught. It was about the size of an adult mouse, so I take it that it was probably a female of the species. I know it was her first spider, because she hasn't tried to eat any more of them. I take it that she wasn't impressed with the taste of spider. She loves chasing and killing them, though. And, I figure she can use the exercise.
What about a new artificial mouse?
Loreena enjoyed a very ugly gray one that 'walks" (more exactly "jumps' like frog) due a manual pump :-)
This is the one in rubber are the only ones she care about... as the others are ignored
I made Akira some crocheted "rats". The newest pictures show the picture of the blue one. She loves these things because she can be as rough as she wants to be without me telling her to "be gentle" or "no bite" or "be nice".
Good reason why Teia has been watching the dishwasher so well. Got another mouse last night with a second trap. Got a couple new traps, as she's took up her watch post again earlier today after mousie 2 went bye-bye.
Good on Teia! She is acting the way a cat is supposed to act when there are mice present. It actually sounds kind of cute. She has come out of her shell and has come a long way since you rescued her.
It sounds like you need to find out where the mice are getting into the house and find their nest or their mouse colony. It sounds like you need to seal up their entrance into the house. You don't want the few to become an infestation.
