Obviously my mum cat doesn't think I have been providing the kittens with enough food!

Every night for a week shes bought home a live mouse. Wouldn't be so bad but my o/h hates mice and freeks out. And she lets them go:yeahright:.

Step son saw one the other day - but we never found it and, this morning, I heard a rustling behind the cat feed bin - pull it forward and guess what!

she grabbed it and i told her to tak it out and locked the cat flap - now she is trying to break in - still with the mouse.

I do wonder where she gets them from - shame they aren't safe to feed to the snakes though lol.

why aren't they safe for the snakes?
I didn't think rodent deseases can be passed to reptiles.

That'll just make them go dormant most likely. And besides, wild mice aren't exactly hygenic.

Only thing Bentley (the puppy) has brought back up is half a pink g-string that he ate. Nobody realised he'd eaten it till he brought it back up.

he's naughty. i tried to train him that if he steals her underwear he saves it for me but he won't listen.

We caught him once trying to sneak out with an oven glove

My sisters cat is a proper huntress. And i always have to deal with them dead or alive.
She must have brought in over 30 mice this year, not including voles, a few birds (some alive some dead) and a slow worm.

The mice are actually very lucky if their alive when they come to me, because usually it's late at night and i cant release them near the house as she'd just bring them in again, so i wait until the morning if the mouse is healthy enough.
They get a stay in a plastic tank with straw and hides, they get fed and get given water til morning or when i can release them as sometimes i keep them for longer if their injured.
They all still eat and drink right infront of me, as stressful as their situation is.:( They must be so desparate for food and drink, poor lil things.
Of course their not always alive when their brought in, or whole for that matter.

Ive helped a couple out and then released them far away from the house, so at least they have a fighting chance.

I don't know if this is true, but I heard that it has nothing to do with the kittens. It's to do with you. It's a present for you.
