The cats caught a shrew

Killed it, too, which I'm utterly fine with as they are cats and it was indoors. 'Cause even though shrews apparently kill mice, Tillie and Jinx have been doing a fine job on that front.

For the record, Jinx makes a totally different "Lookit! Lookit! I am mighty! I killed a shrew!" sound from Tillie's "Lookit! Lookit! I am mighty! I killed a mouse!" proclamation. Jinx sounds somewhat distressed. Tillie is just proud, proud, proud. (And utterly adorable when she does it while parading around with one of her catnip mousie toys, which is pretty much the norm ever since they did in the mouse population in the months after they moved in.)

The hunt itself is conducted silently, as far as I can tell. They only tell me after they're done with it. This is the first time that Jinx made the announcement, so maybe she was the victor as well.

we caught 3 of them. 1 seems to have figured out how to get in and out of the trap.

What excellent cats! We feel that our new one, the Cassie cat, will be a mighty hunter, but so far there have been no mice or shrews, only socks and the occasional pair of glasses left lying briefly where they can be picked up by the earpiece and shaken until dead to her satisfaction. She is unfortunately not terribly impressed with toy mice. Stuffed spiders are good, though. Big ones.

It took years for Dover to actually kill a mouse. He never did figure out that he could eat it.
