I let the cats into the feed room but they ignored the mouse. I moved the nearly-empty feed sack outside where the cats' food bowl is, but again they ignored it, they were too busy eating their breakfast. Finally I poured the grain into a bucket until the mouse was also poured out, and set the bucket in the middle of the six cats where they had congregated after finishing breakfast. That worked: one of the cats caught the mouse in short order and ran off with it. That's what happens to mice at my house: cat food!
We also caught a mouse in the kitchen. That's how I dispose of dead mice: cat food!
