The cats brought us a present. On Sunday night at about 2 am, Sera started yapping. I checked her out but everything seemed okay so I went back to bed. She kept making noise so I turned on the light.
"Honey, can you get rid of the dead mouse?"
Hubby got out of bed and disposed of the corpse. He then fed the cats some yummy wet food. We're trying to get them to realize that if they kill mice they get treats.
They seem to be getting the connection. A few nights later the other cat caught a mouse in the kitchen. True, she didn't actually kill it (poor hubby had to do it) but I think the mice are getting the message. They may be too smart to get caught in the traps but the cats do get them.
