Recently my cat Snickers caught a mouse in the garage. No wonder she's always by the door meowing to go out. I guess it's warmer in there, plus the mouse had the luxury of a garbage bag full of chicken wing bones to strive for. The mouse played dead and when let down quickly scurried under the garage door. In case you didn't know, there is a humane way to capture mice and free them with out using poison that may kill your pets.
