Jon-Tom becuase we have the same human and the same mice. They are NOT
pets - they are snake food. My person keeps a few of the prettiest,
friendliest mice in a seperate cage as pets and we would NEVER think of
bring those to the mouse hunt. We would only bring non-pet mice. Cats
are hunters and carnivores by nature and while I would never hurt a
person's pet, I think asking us not to hunt mice at all is a little
unrealistic and unreasonable. At least form my feline point of view.
