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.
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.
