A man discovered the surprising relationship between his feline and a rodent.
When a mouse enters their home without their consent, some owners rely on their cat to drive it away. It is not always so! In Punta Arenas, Chile, a man discovered a surprising bond between his cat and his rodent.
A few weeks ago, Benjamin Sagredo started hearing strange noises in his kitchen. Sounds, rather faint, were heard only occasionally.
“We didn’t know what it was,” he told Dodo. “We’ve seen Simon play with something under a chair before, but we didn’t put much thought into it”.
Simon, the family cat, knew exactly who the intruder was. Instead of getting rid of him, he befriended her.
One morning, as Benjamin Sagredo was about to enter the kitchen, he witnessed an amazing sight. Simon drank water quietly… with a mouse. 2 animals shared one cup. The big cat clearly liked the little rodent.
Although the man was stunned by this unusual relationship, he quickly accepted his four-legged companion’s point of view. Simon was so friendly with his guest that he himself became attached to this creature.
The owner of a cat in a black robe took Chefcito outside in case she prefers to live in the desert. But the mouse was clearly at home in the company of her best feline friend.
