Daphne catches and eats a mouse every night, sometimes even more than one mouse and sometimes she just had enough cat food for dinner so she brings the mouse home to play with it. It is amazing how gentle she is with the poor creature because every mouse survives this ordeal. Yesterday was one of those nights. Luckily for the mouse I observed the mouse disappearing under the vacuum cleaner. Today as housework on the to-do list, but I didn't dare to switch on the machine so - instead - I disassembled the vacuum cleaner - and yes, the mouse was still there and alive.
Die Kleine war starr vor Angst und so war es auch nicht schwer sie in einen sicheren Behälter zu setzen.
The little mouse was frozen stiff from fear and that made it quite easy to put her in a container.
Ich habe sie in einen Schuhkarton mit ein bischen was zum fressen gesetzt, damit sich sie erholen und stärken kann, bevor die kleine Maus am Abend wieder in die Freiheit darf und hoffentlich nicht gleich wieder als Katzenabendessen endet.
I placed the mouse in a shoebos with something to eat so that she can rest and gather some strenght before she goes back to the wild this evening. Hopefulle she won't end up as cat food to soon....
