Celebrating Women for the Real World

She Earned the Title of “Mouser”

When it comes to thinking about exerting yourself or staying focused until you reach your objective, you never would think about my cat.  Mercedes although loving, cute and cuddly does not get worked up over anything, except for getting her food dish filled.  As a matter of fact when you look at her she usually is in this position.

Mercedes' usual pastime

We have been having a problem with mice thanks to the multi-family home next door. So you can imagine my surprise when G2 called me and told me that Mercedes had caught a mouse.

At first I didn’t believe him because she is  a) ten years old,  b) sleeps most of the day, and c) is declawed… so he sent me a photo. How the heck could she possibly catch a mouse?

Well here is the evidence:

Mercedes' the mouser

Forgive the camera phone photo.

Can you believe it? G2 says that she walked out of the kitchen with it in her mouth, as you can see, she was guarding her prey. I just didn’t think she had it in her!

Mercedes, supreme mouser!

    Our Oreo is 9 and lazy, too. He did bring home a small bird recently. He was so proud of himself. Cats.
