Do not worry, there are no graphic pictures in this post! After Jelly left me a "present" the morning of my last day of school, it got me thinking about all of the kitty's encounters with rodents. I can think of four, but I bet there are many more that I just don't know about!
1. Chrissy's first blood was when he killed a vole outside. We used to take the kitties out to "play" in the back yard. Well, of course Chrissy found a little vole to mess with. I made Paul deal with the situation.
2. Years ago, I heard the cats going nuts in the bedroom. I also heard something scurrying and squeaking. I shut the bedroom door and yelled for Paul to come take care of it. I still don't know what happened and I don't want to! I am assuming a little mouse lost it's life! (Can you see a pattern? I keep making Paul deal with these things!)
3. The BIGGEST rodent issue we ever experienced can be read about in my Domestic Forensics post. Let's just say I woke up to some major blood spatter evidence but no body. A few days later, one of the cats shed a claw that was bloody and had little grey hairs stuck to it. You can see the picture here if you want. I assume they massacred a little rodent. I looked all over the house and still don't know what happened to the body.
4. Last Monday, I woke up feeling extremely happy. It was the last day of school for the summer and everything was magical... until I saw Jelly laying on the rug by the back door. I went over to pet him and when he got up to run away, I saw it. A dead mouse on the rug. I gasped and tried to figure out what to do. Paul was sleeping so I picked up the rug, threw the mouse outside (without touching it), and left the rug by our trash cans. Paul could figure out what to do with it later. I did not find any more evidence until later in the day. Jelly had dried blood on his front legs! Then the next morning when I woke up, I found some little blood droplets on the floor that I missed the day before.
Fun fact: The day Jelly left that little mouse as a present, an HVAC guy from SECCO came to check out our air conditioning unit. It was making a lot of noise. It turned out to be MOUSE BONES in the unit! Ugh!!!
The moral of the story is, our house has become a kill zone for unsuspecting mice.
Can you believe these two babies could hurt a fly!?
