Barn Cat Adopts Mouse as Pet: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

My barn cat Gypsy Rose Lee plays with her barn mouse friend, co-starring Dakota the barn cat.

YouTube video description


When I first moved into my house some fifteen years ago it was infested with mice, but my cat soon drove away all the pests. Patches enjoyed tormenting the mice, before she killed them.

Dog chase cats and cats chase mice, that`s the way of the world. But try telling that to Gypsy Rose Lee, a barn cat, who is supposed to chase away and kill mice. Gypsy is such a sweet-natured cat that she prefers to play with mice.

I hope the owner doesn`t get rid of Gypsy Rose Lee, she may be a failure as a barn cat, but she`s a terrific pet.
