The cats paid their rent today

Came home from synagogue to a dead field mouse on the floor. Both cats looked supremely bored.

Well, it was easier to clean up than vomit. That's one plus.

They wanted to make sure you had sufficient meat available for Shabbat lunch. :-)

The first time my cats interacted with a mouse (or, at least, the first time I knew about it), they knew they were supposed to chase it but they didn't know what else to do. I scooped up the mouse and set it loose outside. A week or two later it, or another mouse, got into the house again, and by then the cats had apparently completed their education.

(At first I thought it was a really big hairball. Then I saw that the hairball had appendages. Eww.)

I don't believe my cats are capable of kashering a mouse. :)

I figured that they'd be able to take one out. They beat each other up enough. Pleased? Sure, I'd rather have dead mice than live mice. But I can't say much for their sense of timing.
