Rosie has a strange habit. She loves little mice in fabric with little tails . The first thing she does when she had played for a while, she bites off the tail. I then find the tails in the most strangest places. She also chewes on these mice, there must be something interesting inside. But the most curious behaviour is that when she has finished playing she puts the mice in or around the bowls containing dry food ! As you can see there are two mice in front of the bowls and one mouse inside !
She only plays with these mice since a while and doesn't touch other toys. Even the feather stick is of no interest to her anymore she prefers that I throw a mouse where she can run after and then bring it back to me.
After a while the mice will disappear and even by checking the whole house and under the furniture we can't find them anymore. Only solution to keep little Rosie busy is to buy new once. That's what I did.
I had bought can food and two bags of dry food and of course the mice. In the plastic bags with the cans I had put the carton with two mice pinned on and left everything in the basement to range it later.
But after one day to my big surprise I saw Rosie playing with this carton ! I couldn't believe it she had digged it out from the plastic bag amongst the cans and brought it up the steps to play with it in the hallway, while the cleaning lady was occupied with the bathroom. We bursted out into laughter and then I took the carton away from Rosie to detach one mouse and give it to her. The carton with the other mouse I left on the kitchen table to find it a little later on the floor in the living room !
Here you see Rosie "ashamed" of having "stolen" the carton, and playing with the mouse. Arthur was also present but he rather helped the cleaning lady. He loves her !
One thing is for sure she is not a silly cat !
After all this hard work Rosie took a sun bath.
