Yesterday my cat was camped out next to the freezer all day, I could see she was onto something so in the end I pulled the freezer out and a tiny grey mouse ran out! The cat caught it and ran around the house with it alive and basically tortured it before it got away. I spent all last night cleaning (found some droppings behind the freezer), then eventually found the mouse dead this morning behind the sofa. Now, our house is very old, there are loads of gaps in floor boards and skirting boards etc, we also have an unused cellar underneath. Is it likely there'll be more of them as I can't find any evidence of food raiding or nibbling.
Also does anyone know if this would be the reason why a previously litter trained mostly outdoor cat has in the last week or so decided to stay indoors and wee in the kitchen? I have been telling her off, but now I'm thinking maybe she was laying her scent to let the mouse now this was her territory???
Thanks in advance for any advice given.............
