“I was super sick with a kidney infection and hadn’t been able to really get out of bed for the past couple of days. My cat was with me for most of the time. She went out for a bit and when she came back, she jumped up on the foot of my bed and was really still. I knew something was up and sure enough, she had a mouse/baby rat in her mouth. I jumped up and ran out of the room, she followed me with it.
My mom’s boyfriend who was also sick came out of their room to see what the commotion was. He tried to get the mouse from her, but she wasn’t having any of that and clawed him. She went back outside and when she came back in she didn’t bring another gift, but just curled up and went to sleep. Looking back it’s kinda sweet. She brought me a present, tried to make sure that I saw by following me with it, and then fought someone trying to keep it.”
