So this time last year we got a kitten, an orange tabby, that we named Dawg. The sole purpose for getting Dawg was to eliminate mice in the house. We are not really cat people, but Dawg has definitely grown on me.
And he does his job like a champ. Haven’t seen a mouse or evidence of one since he came on the scene. He’s turned out to be more expensive than I anticipated: prescription flea meds, prescription food, neutering, an installed cat door. But I’ve come to terms with it. Dawg does his job in the house and does his business outside, so no litter box.
Now something new has developed.
Dawg is leaving what I think are dead shrews in the middle of the kitchen floor and sometimes behind furniture where they make themselves known a few weeks later.
What do you think? Are the shrews in the house, trying to take over where the mice left off, which I’ve read they do, or is Dawg hunting them outside while we sleep and bringing them in to make sure we remain aware of his predatory skill??
I’d love to hear what you think or stories about your own feline friends!
