Mouse hunting - old cat style...

Madam having discovered there are mice in the garden, now spends a great deal of time investigating any movement in the plants and shrubs. So far she hasn't caught anything, but I get the impression that many of the mice have decided its time to move house. They certainly are not as bold as they were until recently.

Madam's technique is interesting, she has a spot near where she located a mouse previously. She advances to this carefully and then parks, watching closely around her for any sign of movement. For an almost twenty year old, her reflexes are still excellent. Something moved while she was watching and had it not been deep inside a rather dense shrub, I suspect she'd have had it.

The birds aren't happy about her sudden interest in hunting though and spend all their time swearing at her from the safety of the upper branches of our trees...
