Oscar Messes Up Some Little Rat’s Evening and a Cat vs Rat Poll

I don’t know how he does it without claws.  I guess cats are just quicker than rats.  Either that or he’s just relentlessly going for the kills all day long and every once in a while gets lucky.

Guess we may as well poll it.

  1. I’m not a veteranarian but that sure looks like a mouse. There was a big study published this year about what and how many things that cats kill. They put cameras on the cat collars. They kill very few rats.

    The Oatmeal did a review: http://theoatmeal.com/comics/cats_actually_kill

    I lived in the country with what seemed like a thousand mice coming into the house when the weather grew cold — the cats could barely keep up. That is definitely a mouse, and Oscar’s gonna win just about every time, thank goodness.

      Y’all really don’t think I know the difference between a rat and a field mouse? can a guy get a little creative with a title? :)

      Hamsters, mice, rats- all rats to me.

      When Beannie had her hamster I referred to it as a rat as well, drove her up a wall,lol.

    Check this out: the secret lives of roaming cats! http://www.npr.org/2012/08/10/158589981/kitty-cam-reveals-the-secret-life-of-roaming-cats Cats are ruthless killers, and thank goodness for them – like S.D. Kelly says, mice are so cute…unless they overrun your space!

    I have had cats all my life (I’m old) and this is definitely a mouse! I have seen many on my back porch! You go Oscar! Keep those mice out of the house!

    That’s a poor little tiny cute mouse. Poor thing. Not a rat. If you hadn’t thrown your back out, you’d be able to bend over for a better look.

    Definitely a mouse ! my cat Dinou is on the war path and got one yesterday . Did not eat it, just played with, I think the mouse died of a heart attack. or maybe not, Dinou is fully armed with all his claws. .That was a foolish mouse.!

    That looks like a big mouse!! I have two cats and they go outside and keep those things under control!! Rack your leaves also that keeps them away!!
