Catch Me If You Can...live Tom & Jerry Story!

.


Goalie having fun with a mouse or is it the mouse having fun with her?!


This is the story of our cat, Goalie and a tiny mouse!

As per my usual morning routine, I went out to pluck flowers at around 6.30 AM. Normally, Goalie accompanies me like a dog, running here and there around me when I make a round of our house to pluck flowers! I didn't see her today and so was calling her and then saw her playing with a little mouse...she just looked up at me and continued her play!

I just stood there and watched them for a few seconds and noticed that the little creature was not at all scared of her perpetrator but was standing up, literally, jumping to bite Goalie's face! I felt like watching a Tom & Jerry movie! I ran inside and got my phone (my camera was somewhere else and I was in a hurry!) and started taking a video of the 'cat & mouse' play!

By the time I started filming, the mouse had stopped standing up to fight, but was running here and there, Goalie following her! I am using my phone for taking the video for the first time and so, the video is not very clear...but their 'hide & seek' is visible! I would have felt happier if I was able to capture the face of the mouse in a close-up! She was cute!

The mouse was just like Jerry...too intelligent for our Tom...Goalie lost her and came back home with a gash in her front knee!

Loved the "Tom and Jerry" type video, Sandhya!

The mouse does not seem scared at all. It is staying just out of Goalie's reach as if teasing her!

Sandhya said...

Manju: Yes, the mouse could have run away easily with all the plants for cover! Goalie is not a good hunter, her mother, Jinju is!

The mouse must be telling the story of Goalie to her mother now, laughingly!

The image of the mouse stretching herself up and trying to bite Goalie is still in front of my eyes!

Hope Goalie is not infected by the rat! She is dull because of the wound, I think!

The mouse was pretty casual - as you said they can be fast, but this one wasn't trying to run. Somehow they find out which cats hunt and which don't!

Is it a case of daredevilkry in the face of extreme danger?

Destination Infinity: Yes, I too think so!


KParthasarathy: This is my first time as a videographer!!


Shail: Enjoyed watching your video...I can see that she is the queen of the house now! Such huge beautiful eyes!


Roshmi Sinha: Yes, Roshmi! All of us love our cats...3 are there! Zorro is the man of the house, just comes home, eats and leaves! Jinju eats and sleeps, Goalie is the only one, who plays with us now!


UmaS: I am sorry, the video is not very clear, if it was clear, we could have enjoyed it better, Uma!

Sandhya said...

Swaram: Yes, Swaram, thank you!


Varunavi: I think so too, Saritha! She is born here at home and lived a sheltered life at home...never had to fight for anything! But her mother came from outside and knew how to hunt!


Bikram: As I said to Saritha, she is home grown...you said it too now! She is one, softie!

sharu said...

Great post, I liked the way she was complaining to you after loosing the battle... Thanks for the video..enjoyed it..

Indian Home Maker said...

May be the mouse being young is still unaware of how dangerous a cat could be. It didn't run away... maybe it couldn't run fast because it was hurt, cat's claws can hurt!

Sandhya said...

Sharu: It would have been nice if the video was clearer!


IHM: That might be the reason why the mouse didn't try to run away, she looked like a baby...lot of plants were there for her to hide herself! I don't think she was hurt because you can notice her running quite fast and I saw Goalie just playing with her and the nails were not visible!

Goalie is bored and wants somebody to play with, even a mouse is OK!

Gyanban said...

First time here and quite like it.

Indian Home Maker said...

I am so glad Sandhya :)

kanagu said...

Sandhya said...

Gyanban: Welcome here, Gyanban and thank you!


IHM: Thank you, IHM!


kanagu: Goalie is a softie, Kanagu!

Thank you, Kanagu!

Usha Pisharody said...

LOL.
My cat refused to catch any kind of rat or mouse. In fact she would simply play with them!

Loved this too!

Sandhya said...

Usha Pisharody: I haven't seen Zorro catching even a fly! Jinju and Ammaakkaari used to bring squirrels for their babies. Goalie bring them in and play with them.

Thanks for the comment, Usha!
