I hope you made it out unscathed! If your cat is anything like mine, she’ll play with it until the mouse gets bored and buggers off. Hopefully your Fiance was able to take care of business!

When we travel to DH’s parents’ house, we usually stay for quite a while because its far away so we travel with all our furbabies. A few years ago while visiting, sleeping like a log more specifically, our cat jumped up onto the bed. I reached out to pet her and felt something plunk onto my chest, scratch the he!! out of me, then scurry off. I screamed bloody murder and nearly gave Darling Husband a heart attack. Once he came to, we were frantically trying to evacuate the bed etc. In the meantime our cat found the mouse again… I ran downstairs and the cat followed WITH mouse. She was apparently pretty proud and NEEDED me to have this little gift, except she wouldn’t kill it. She’d play with it, we’d run to a different area of the house, and she would follow. Ugh. Long story short, I talked Darling Husband out of squishing it with a hockey stick and instead opted for a toss out the door with a lacrosse stick. It still gives me the heebies

Oh man, this totally happened to me in my old house. Only we were going to bed at the time it happened. I didn’t care about the mouse’s life, but I was totally freaked out by the thought it might escape the cat and be loose in my house! We didn’t know we had mice at all though, so it was a shock all around.

I hope you made it out of the house okay!

Ugh.  I feel sorry for you!  My cat was infamous for bringing mice into my room to play with.  I woke up one night with it in my bed!  The poor things would just squeal and I would try my best to capture them to throw outside.  They probably ended up dying of a heart attack.  My cat never, ever bit or killed them.
