The oh fuck look on the mouse's face is priceless.

[–]wisertime07 251 points252 points  (34 children)

Seriously, this is the honest look of "oh fuck I'm going to die" in its purest form.

[–]psychosocial-- 62 points63 points  (1 child)

“Monster” is a relative term... to a canary, a cat is a monster. We’re just used to being the cat.

[–]Feriluce 29 points30 points  (5 children)

You are way too happy about stuff getting murdered.

[–]choochoochooseaname 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Ya we should all be angry at nature!

Theres wild predators out there killing other creatures right now!! How awful! We should lock all those predators up in cages or something

[–]Feriluce 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Ah yes, the cycle of life. Don't you just appreciate the beauty of nature when you see people murdering each other?

you fucking kidding me

[–]PM_ME_UR_HIP_DIMPLES 16 points17 points  (5 children)

I hate to be that guy but I'm pretty confident that's a dead mouse. Cats play with them after they're dead for a while, it could just be his last face.

[–]Yakhunt 38 points39 points  (3 children)

Yeah, that mouse is screwed. Our cat used to catch them and repeatedly let them go to catch again, like some sort of game. He knew it wasn't getting far.

As it seemed cruel, I once tried to intervene to rescue a mouse. The cat, realising my intension gently caught the mouse and picked it up in his mouth with the tenderness of a mother cat lifting a kitten, stared me dead in the eye while I got close and then suddenly crunched down on the little rodent. Cheers for that Benny, you evil little floofball.

[–]paleogizmo 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Mine would try to bite the heads off as soon as he saw my wife coming to rescue whatever bird/rodent he was playing with. Still have him but he’s too old/fat for those shenanigans now

Edit: Mice are pretty tough compared to birds. I give it 2/3 chance of still being alive based on the times I intervened

[–]itsmeagin 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I don't think there is any point trying to intervene with birds, actually. Cat saliva is toxic to most birds as it contains Pasturella. This bacteria in their saliva can either be introduced to the bird through bites or saliva left on their feathers. You can save the bird by getting it from the cat, but it will perch somewhere, and either die from the bacteria, or ingest it while preening from the feathers. I guess best thing is to have indoor kitties.

Yes! No fake! I took it 5-6 years ago in front of our house with a SLR.

Do which is it OP? Is it new or is it 5-6 years old.

[–]WrinklyTidbits 17 points18 points  (0 children)

We're getting bamboozled!!!

[–]notkristina 17 points18 points  (1 child)

It says the camera was new when the picture was taken, but there's no claim that the picture is new. That being said, it's new to me and I'm enjoying it.

[–]Caverwoman 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I like your attitude, notkristina.

Maybe it was the mouse. Maybe this is payback.

[–]BWC_semaJ 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I would check for ear mites just in case.

[–]ReapeR_ahhh 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah most likely ear mites

[–]Rubenjrush -5 points-4 points  (15 children)

Maybe you should keep your cat inside :x

Just to clarify... It could be worth not letting your cat be injured, wounded, prone to catching diseases like Feline Aids, allowed to kill local wildlife, or run over by a car by keeping it inside. Sorry for not being clear hehe

[–]IRNobody 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Being a responsible pet owner seems oddly unpopular when it comes to cats.

[–]TheBreasticle 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Seriously though. “Chipmunks and mice are just pests” like are you serious? Do some reading on ecology and environmental studies. Some cat owners have absolutely NO regard for the environment - and letting cats roam free is one of the worst things you can do. So many, so many birds die every year from back yard cats that people just let roam around. Not to mention that they just piss and shit anywhere they please, I.e in my garden at the last place I lived.

If the cats “need their ‘outside’ time” so much, put them on a Fucking leash like you would your dog. Unless your dog is well trained like my dog, in which case it will obey you and not run around killing small wildlife.

[–]ryanbbb 0 points1 point  (4 children)

I love my cats but they also love their outside time. Depriving yhem of that seems equally cruel.

[–]Rubenjrush 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Some kids love eating nothing but ice cream and sniffing paint fumes.. but that's not really what's best for them is it?

[–]NotYourTypicalReditr 0 points1 point  (1 child)

If I let my kids go play outside, they could get hit by a car, kill local wildlife and/or contract diseases too. Cats are more easily replaceable though.

[–]FlyUnder_TheRadar -3 points-2 points  (7 children)

I see this sentiment every time I am on a thread like this. While I understand the benefits of keeping cats indoors, I think it is important that we understand that cats are animals and being out doors shouldn't be a big deal. We love cats, and cats love us (I like to believe they do anyway) but I don't think it's right to keep these animals cooped up in doors. Why should I care if my cat or any other cats kill mice or Chipmunks? They are pests, plain and simple. If my cat gets into a scrap with a fox or finds itself on the business and of a car and dosent come back then that's life, sad but true. Just because someone let's their cat out at night does not mean that they love their pet any less than you, and it isn't your or any one else's place to dictate how others care for their pets.

[–]Rubenjrush 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Releasing your domesticated cat to the outside world and everything out there isn't caring for it at all...

[–]TerraFaunaAu 1 point2 points  (5 children)

I hope you never own a pet. You have such an abysmal regard for the environment and pets.

[–]FlyUnder_TheRadar 2 points3 points  (3 children)

I expressed my opinion, albeit an unpopular one, so I understand if you disagree and that is fine. I will not tell anyone how to raise other pet as long as they are not abusive. However wishing that on me and saying I have an abysmal regard for pets is a large jump to make using my single post here as a basis.

[–]walnutwhip 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Every time I argue your point I get downvoted to fuck too but I continued to argue it for a while because my cats have always adored their time outside and I just couldn't bring myself to deprive them of that. But, I live in the UK where it's estimated less than 10% of cats are kept indoors permanently of which a percentage will be because they are blind/deaf/otherwise unsuited to outdoor activity, and the remainder are by choice, maybe because they are a thoroughbred and prone to theft, so it seems natural to me to let my cats out. All I get back are vicious comments about what a careless bitch I am who can't possibly care about her cats at all, when actually the complete reverse is true; I let them out because I want them to enjoy life as much as possible so I've given up making the argument because it's like talking to a brick wall. EDIT clarity

[–]TerraFaunaAu 1 point2 points  (1 child)

"If my cat gets into a scrap with a fox or finds itself on the business and of a car and dosent come back then that's life, sad but true. " Neglect is a form of abuse. So hence why i hope you never own a pet.

[–]FlyUnder_TheRadar 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My family owns two cats, both of which are happy and healthy despite the fact that they are allowed outside. I consider neglect as not feeding the pet, refusing to take it to the vet, ect. You are right though, letting a cat outside if there is a clear and present danger is irresponsible. If I lived in a city or even a suburb I would keep the cat inside. I wouldn't let them out if it is too cold either, that would be dangerous.

[–]UmbrellaEnchanted 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We have adopted stray cats and don't let them outside for security reasons as there is a big road next to our house. The cats went from active and happy to super depressed, no amount of toys and attention can make up for the fact that they are forced to spend the rest of their lives cooped in the same four walls. Even the vet has recommended to let them outside during non-traffic-heavy hours - which by definition would be nighttime - since it's no life for them to waste away in sadness. So please don't be so judgemental. It might seriously harm a cat's emotional well-being to be prisoner for the rest of their life, even if it's to keep them physically safe. People who allow their cats some freedom outside are not negligent or have no regard for their pets. It's cruel that you would suggest something like this when I lay awake at night worrying and crying because I don't know what to do to stop my beloved cats, who are like children to me, from giving up on life due to their imprisonment.

Yes! No fake! I took it 5-6 years ago in front of our house with a SLR.

So which is it? A new SLR or is it 5-6 years old?

[–]notkristina 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Sounds like it was new when the photo was taken, some years ago.
