Every cat owner knows that if you have mice in your home, it’s best to get rid of them as soon as you can. Most people prefer to use traps and poisons because they are more convenient, but there are also other options that don’t involve killing the mice. One such option is borrowing a cat from someone who has one. If you’ve never tried this before, here’s how it works:

Borrow a cat

  • Borrow a cat. If you don’t have one, borrow a cat from a friend or neighbor.
  • Don’t borrow the wrong cat! A small kitten is great for dealing with mice because it will be playful and run around with them, but if you’re trying to get rid of adult mice that are living under your house, you’ll need an older cat who knows how to hunt and kill them without any help from humans.
  • Get the right cat. This can be difficult because some cats are better hunters than others—and some cats aren’t very good at hunting at all! You may need to try several different cats before finding one that works well enough for your purposes.
  • Get the attention of the mice by playing with both yourself (or another person) and with your new pet! This will encourage them both into action; then when they do go after each other it won’t matter who wins because they’ll both end up dead anyway so there’s nothing left over afterwards except happiness all around 🙂

Borrow the wrong cat

  • Borrow a cat that doesn’t like mice. It’s true that some cats will not tolerate mice in any form, but most of them are perfectly happy to chase the pests out of their territory. However, if you have a cat who is particularly fond of mice and would rather play with them than eat them, then this could be problematic for your purposes.
  • Borrow a cat that is too old to catch mice. Old cats are often less energetic than young ones and may not have the physical capacity required for hunting down and capturing prey as effectively as they once did—though many older felines will still manage to catch enough mice on their own time (and yours!) while they’re napping in between meals or sunning themselves on the couch or whatever it is old people do these days when they retire from active duty at age 13 because they’re ancient and just don’t have the stamina anymore…
  • Borrow a cat that is too young to catch mouses? If your mouse problem gets worse before it gets better due to poor planning and/or planning failure by others involved with this project then perhaps we’ll need another option: borrowing one

Get the right cat

The cat you choose should be a hunter. If your cat is afraid of mice, it will not be able to catch them. If it hates mice and wants nothing to do with them, then you are simply wasting your time. You want a cat that will enjoy the game of catching mice and will feel like they are accomplishing something by doing so.

You also need to make sure that this particular breed of cat is healthy enough for breeding purposes. They need to be free from diseases and parasites (like fleas). The last thing you want is for some kind of health issue or medical condition that could affect their ability or desire to reproduce in the future

Get the attention of the mice

  • Play with the cat.
  • Play with the mouse.
  • Play with both of them together for maximum effect. You’ll want to make sure that your cat is hungry, as well as any mice that may be around.

Play with mice and cat

The first step to getting rid of mice is to play with your cat and the mice. Play is a good way for cats and mice to get to know each other, as well as for you to get an idea of what kind of personality your cat has. When playing with cats and mice, try throwing toys around or even letting them chase each other. You may find that some cats prefer chasing their prey while others prefer just watching from afar!

The cat will catch mice

A cat will indeed catch mice. It will not eat the mouse because it is a carnivore, but it will play with the mouse. A cat can use its paws to catch a mouse, or it can use its mouth. When using its paws, cats will grab the tail and hold on while they shake the mouse until it dies. Cats have claws on their front feet and they can rip into mice when they pounce on them to catch them.

To catch a mouse in your house that has been caught by your cat quickly pick up any loose fabric rags like towels or blankets and wrap them tightly around the wet bundle of material. Take this bundle outside so you don’t aggravate your neighbors by having dead rodent smells in their home also if there are babies inside then try not to step in any blood as well

Is it dangerous for a cat?

In order to determine the risks of feeding your cat a mouse, you must first understand what cats are: predators. Your cat’s instincts and behaviors are built on his predatory nature. He is designed to hunt and kill prey, so it stands to reason that he would enjoy eating mice.

In fact, many cats have been known to be very picky when it comes to their food choices—choosing one type of prey over another based on availability or taste preference. Even if your cat seems like he doesn’t like mice, other factors may come into play in terms of why he may not eat them right away (or ever). For example, some cats who have access only rarely eat mice because they are hungry enough that they will take whatever they can get when they see one scurrying around at night—even though these same cats might prefer larger game such as birds or rabbits instead!

Cats also seem especially attracted by small objects for some reason; we don’t really know why this happens but perhaps there’s something special about how cute these tiny creatures are compared with bigger ones? Maybe there’s something about the way their fur moves around on its own without any help from anyone else (much like our arms do) which makes them seem less scary than other animals would be under similar circumstances? Whatever it is exactly–there seems no shortage of reasons why people feel compelled keep trying again and again even though nothing ever seems worthwhile after all those failures.”

Why do cats eat mice?

Cats are predators. They are natural hunters, and they will hunt mice and other small animals.

Mice are a source of protein for cats. Cats need to eat protein because it provides them with energy. It also keeps their teeth clean, which prevents the buildup of tartar that can lead to gum disease.

Cats may also hunt mice out of hunger if there isn’t enough food in their environment or because they can (or both).

What should you do if your cat has already eaten the mouse?

  • If your cat has already eaten the mouse, you should contact a veterinarian immediately.
  • The vet will need to perform a complete physical examination of your cat and may prescribe medications to treat any infections or parasites that could have been transmitted by eating the mouse.
  • A doctor may also recommend administering an anti-worming medication if they suspect that your cat has ingested worms from this mouse.
  • If there was any poison in the mouse’s body, you should take precautions to protect yourself and others around you—even if you don’t think that it’s likely there was poison in there (it happens more often than people think).


In conclusion, it is very easy to borrow a cat. You just have to find the right one and then play with mice and cat.
