a peaceful evening.  
Cat leaps down from window and streaks for kitchen. Owner goes to investigate, and finds cat with empty mouth, pawing at shelving unit. Owner groans and goes back to reading, in the hopes that cat will find and dispose of mouse before owner wakes up with it running over the bed.

Several minutes later, mouse runs past couch. Cat runs past in the other direction, in a slightly smug manner. Owner investigates, and finds cat lying by door, looking quite innocent. Except for the mouse tail sticking out from under her. Twitching.

Owner picks up cat by scruff, mouse sprints away, straight into a soda box. With a thunk. While mouse is still dazed and confused, is transported outside.

Everybody lives!

Though I wish I had thought to get a picture of Cinder lying there with her best 'aren't I cute' look. With the mouse tail sticking out.

Yes, but this mouse wasn't foolish enough to come in of its own accord, Cinder went out and brought it back for a snack-toy.

One of the first times I met Cinder, when she was an abandoned pregnant stray, she was eating a young squirrel she had brought down, that was as long as her from nose to tail. She's brought me doves, still fluttering and fighting, even though she had to leap to the window carrying them. She may be only six or seven pounds of kittenish cuteness, but no mouse that comes within her domain will survive long.
