This is Chip.  He's thirteen and one of the best mousers around.  His brother, Flop, is a snake specialist.  Lovely boys!

There were no mice in my apartment until this past October. Normally, I am awake and able to catch the mice and release them, but he obviously caught this one while I was still asleep upstairs.

Henry is a very good-looking cat! I had 2 gray tigers who were brothers, years ago. More recently, I had a feral cat I brought home from work, and she would periodically catch a mouse or large cricket, and I'd try to get it away from her, before it was too injured by being "played with".

Henry, the Housecat

Message 6 of 6

This is Henry. He's about a year and a half old. Henry was born in my friend's barn and lived there for the first seven months of his life before coming out here to live with me. Now, his is 100% a city cat, but he does still like to hunt. I heard him making all kinds of noises this morning (long before I wanted to wake up). When I came downstairs and walked into my dining room, I thought there was a piece of lint or something on the floor, but I was wrong. My little fur son had caught a mouse. Don't you just love when they leave is these "gifts"?
