Quest for Favorite Mouse Toy Ends on Favorable Note

Does your cat have a favorite cat toy? Well, imagine if your cat lost it?

Recently, we received an email with this request late on a Friday afternoon…

Lost: One especially loved brown mouse somewhere in the house located in Virginia Beach, Va. 23451. Distraught cat named Miss Sophie and equally distraught cat mom named Melanie.

Miss Sophie has “hidden” it and after several months of searching together this special mouse can’t be found. The two of us believe it had pink ears and feet, body was brown, long tail. Kinda furry, opening in the belly where a treat or catnip could be put. About three inches long for the body and another three inches for the tail. Melanie has been to every store in town as well as looked on line but the search ends up with empty hands.

Please let me know if you are able to help this kitty and Mom.

Signed,

Desperate at the Beach.

So, We went to work here to find Miss Sophie a mouse.  I seemed to remember this mouse-in-question and searched the toy box of my cats Berlioz, Stiller, Salem and Dusty.  I also asked a few people if they remembered a mouse of this nature? No success there.

Wait at the bottom of the toybox! Success! I think this is the mouse…and sent an email with a picture asking if this was it.
 

The reply: Yes!!!!!!!!!!!

I went and asked the leader of my cats, Berlioz.  My Himalayan.  He is the oldest.  If I could convince him, I figured the rest would go along with it.  So, I explained the situation.  His response.  I got one eye…which to me, was enough..I asked the rest and they too, were sound asleep…

So I figured they would not miss one little mouse.  After all, they never knew it was in their toy box…and wrote a note to Melanie and Miss Sophie

Well, I talked with Berlioz, Stiller, Salem and Dusty and they said that they would give a “paw” up to Miss Sophie and give her their mouse (they have NEVER played with it. So, if we cannot find a new one for her.  So worst case scenario is that we have a mouse!

The reply:

Awwww,

Team B,S,S & D Rock!

And…the mouse is on its way to a new home!

  1. Believe it or not, I got online this morning to see if I could purchase more of this exact same toy! We had two, one grey, one brown… and my own 3 cats never paid them much attention. We moved from Seattle to England, started fostering kitties for our local branch of Cats Protection, and WHAM! All the kittens wanted to play with was these two mice! And many arrived around the same size as the mice, making for great photo ops. We sent Brown Mouse off with our first foster kitten, not realizing we couldn’t easily purchase more. Ours has a CFA and Jakks label, dated 2007. Is there *anywhere* that these mice are still for sale? Anywhere in the WORLD?? Frantic Fosterers in Kent, UK
