I'm not saying I didn't before, nor am I saying I refused to believe it, but that whole "cat & mouse" thing is verifiably not a purely theoretical or made-up concept to me anymore. You know, that thing where a cat, having captured a mouse, will let it go free for a little while so it can run around pathetically before the cat either bats it with a paw or straight up pounces on it and starts the whole thing over before finally picking it up and taking it somewhere to eat?

What I'm saying is I saw a cat do that this morning while I was on my morning jog run thing. I'm also positive it was a house cat; it was wearing a harness, like you would use to "walk" a cat if you wanted to use a leash. I wonder if it brought the mouse's body back to its family or what.
