Today, I saw my cat playing with one of his many toy mice. Knowing he likes to play fetch, I picked it up and threw it across the room. Upon trying to pick it up a second time, I realized that not only was it not a toy, but it was only half-dead. FML

Just how realistic are his toy mice that you didn't realize that it was a real mouse.

I feel terrible when my cat plays with mice! By that time they're too far gone to let go because they'll die anyway, and they just get more hurt by being thrown up in the air by my cat. :(

cruelity doesn't only belong to human beings. Sad but true.

We had a dog that would do that to moles when I was a kid. I didn't understand when my grandpa would kill them. Once they reach that point, its the only thing you can really do.

Most of the ones I see are bright red or yellow..without fur, obviously fake. Eeek.

You would think the feet and legs would be a dead giveaway. I don't think I've ever seen a toy mouse with feet. Usually they're that weird tear-drop shape with ears and a tail.

I also can't recall the last time I stopped to make sure the mouse didn't have feet before quickly scooping it up and tossing it across the kitchen.

They actually have really realistic ones. I bought one for my cat that has a tail, little feet, red eyes and if you hit it hard enough, it squeaks. She loves it

^This pun is a little shrew-d, don't you think?

I find some people's lack of rodents.... quite cat-astrophic!!

Oh. I also find my lack of scrolling down very crappy-bara!

Yeah, I made that mistake once with my cat. Pretty sure that was the loudest I ever screamed.

Aren't toy mice usually bright colors, like pink & orange? Maybe make sure kitty's toys don't look too realistic so this doesn't happen again. Also, ewwwwwww.... *shudder*

My cat has colourful ones and also quite realistic ones with grey fur and everything. But I could never mistake them for real mice, they're not THAT realistic.

Isn't the way they feel different in your hand as well?

That wasn't very shrewd of you. I guess I know what happened to Stuart Little now. RIP, you smug bastard.

I was going to post something about Stuart Little but you beat me to it.

Your cat definitely pulled the will per your eyes on that one. Cat: 1 You: 0

God dammit. I meant to say "wool" and "over". **** autocorrrect.
