Here is a video of our cat getting the shock of her life when she tries to get our mouse. Look at the funny jumping gesture the cat makes.
The story in the video.
Our neighbour’s cat adopted us. Her name is “Mau Mau”.
I know we should not have fed this lovely cat. Feeding someone else’s cat is like giving sweets to their children. Anyway, that’s what happened.
The cat became our owner. She owned us, not the other way round. The cat was now our pet.
She started to bring us presents. Cats bring presents to their owners. Dead mice, dead birds, sometimes live ones.
She would saunter into our house proudly carrying her prize. We were horrified, but the cat did not understand. We often had to tell the cat not to bring any mice into our home.
One day the cat brought a live mouse into the house, but it escaped. We could hear the mouse somewhere under our fridge, but it was impossible to see it or find it. The kitchen furniture and fridge are “built-in”. There is no way to move anything. The mouse lived happily under the fridge for weeks but we could never see it, just hear it.
We left the cat in the kitchen, hoping she would catch the mouse. She couldn’t catch it either.
Eventually, we set a harmless trap to try and catch the mouse. The trap is a box- trap, with a one-way door. The mouse can enter but cannot exit. The trap does no harm to the mouse.
In order to watch what happened, I set up some Arlo cameras. (See below for info about Arlo security cameras).
It took several nights before the mouse went in the trap. The mouse could see the food (nuts), but could not get to it without entering the trap door. The mouse was very wary of the trap. Eventually the mouse went into the trap.
We put the mousetrap in the garden while we discussed what to do with the mouse. We gave it food and water.
We planned to take it into the forest to let it go free.
Then the cat discovered the trap, and wanted to get the mouse inside. The cat could not get the mouse.
Eventually the cat tried to squeeze her paw through the mouse door, but got her paw stuck. As the cat pulled her paw away, the metal trap made a loud scraping noise on the concrete floor. The cat tried to run away, but the metal trap followed her and frightened the cat even more. WATCH WHAT HAPPENS!
My wife heard the loud noise and came out to see what happened. You can see the cat looking very guilty.
We decided to take the mouse into the woods and let him go safely. Lucky escape Mr. Mouse!
This video was filmed by me using multiple Arlo security cameras. Arlo cameras are battery operated WIFI security cameras which can be activated by a movement. They work in colour in daytime and infra-red black and white at night.
