Cats keeping the mice away

Friday, November 4, 2011

We’ve also heard the old adage “while the cat’s away, the mice will play.” The relationship between a cat and a mouse is iconic. If you don’t want a mouse in your house, get a cat who will be on patrol all the time.  Even if your cat is not good a catching mice, her scent is usually enough to keep them away.  If you have mice already, getting a cat won’t hurt but setting traps may be more effective.  Your cat won’t be able to catch mice if they are in your walls. In this case, watch your pet food bowls since leftovers could be tempting to mice and other critters!

Remember, your pets count!
