The Survey & the Findings

A few weeks ago, in my old blog- I ran a survey trying to find out if many modern day kitties have seen a mouse or not.

Mama said that the results are quite interesting and they got her thinking (uh-oh)! She said that it seems that about 44% of the blogging cats who participated in the survey have, indeed, never seen a mouse (me included)!

Many years back, the sole reason for humans to keep a cat as a pet used to be to hunt and kill mice, just like they’d have woofies as pets so that they protect their housies from robbers and thieves... seems like those reasons are probably somewhat changing- at least in their priority...

Makes us think that maybe modern day humans appreciate us kitties (and woofies) more as ‘companions’ and that old reason is not the major reason for the humans to keep us as pets anymore?

Hmm... interesting... seems like the humans are learning! I always thought they make good pets! Now- if you’ll excuse me, I need to go back to my kitty duty of ‘chasing the brush’ while papa cleans the house!

We had a mousie problem in our old partment. I said live and let live. I even played with one of the babies. It was cute. Mama had to use bait to kill them. Tee Hee.
Guess we are more important as family than as hunters and huntresses of mice.
Now toys are another thing. They seem to call to us....
