Wanted: a cat who loves chasing mice (short term!)

Recommended Posts

My housemates and I have a mouse infestation in our house in North Dulwich. We love animals so don't want to harm them, so we're on the hunt for a cat who might want to come and stay with us for a few days!


We have experience looking after cats and will shower it with love. Please let me know if your cat might be up to the task :) thank you! Alternatively we would consider adopting a cat if that is an option.


Thanks,


Shelley

Oh Callie

Have you never watched the old cartoon "Tom and Jerry"

Obviously the cat will get into a whole heap of trouble chasing the mouse and getting outwitted by it including scrabbling in the air, upsetting spike or running into ironing boards.


This will result in much mirth and amusement for Shelley and housemate thus making them forget their rodent problem.


I mean it's not like Thomas Cat will actually catch Jerry Mouse or anything 😾🐁

Do not feel bad about killing Mice.


Mice are not nice.


A Cat will NOT rid your house of Mice if you have them.


There is seldom one mouse. Apart from Droppings which you can See, they are incontinent.

Mice dribble urine as they travel along. A single house mouse typically deposits several hundred tiny urine droplets in a 24 hour period.


They visit places where food is stored and Pee.


Mice caught using 'Humane' traps and released will return or infest someone else's home.


Do NOT use Poison.. They will disappear and die somewhere where you cannot find them.

They will Rot and Stink. they will get infested with Maggots. You will then be infested with Flies.

Big ones... Dozens of them.. Yuk


Set Wooden mouse traps. with Peanut Butter / Grated Chocolate as bait.

Double Bag the mouse and put in GREEN Bin

Whereas a cat ripping them apart after painfully 'playing' with it's catch is not a kind option!

    • Sorry? I was describing the noise around Herne Hill, I wasn't passing any judgement on the type of music just that the noise of the drum kit reverb and sounds from one stages' sound system was competing with the same from the other...happens at every festival once you get away from one stage you get interference from the sound from another. And thats why it doesn't work having festivals in inner city areas as the sound become noise pollution. As we walked down Stadella the noise was bouncing off the house fronts and it was awful. I pity the poor residents there as they have three weekends of it. 
    • Maybe they are gala Protesters as they have been evicted from the Rye 🤣
    • There used to be events in brockwell park, for years, including Pride and they were never ticketed and there was never the damage there is now. the music isn’t the issue ( although at least Brixton had live bands this year and Peckham didn’t get that right). it’s the insult of a private company working with our council to host a private ticketed event and then show such disrespect for the area.
    • Obviously, there’s lots of people who do like that music and to describe it as you have done R. I think it’s irrelevant.
