20091207 - Oranjello vs. a baby mouse - GEDC1036 - Lemonjello is jealous

Lemonjello wanted in on the action so bad, but Oranjello wouldn't let him have anything to do with it until the very end when he lost interest. Ahh, feline jealousy. Cute but morbid.


Lemonjello the cat, Oranjello the cat, dead mouse.

BACKSTORY: Oranjello caught a baby mouse. (And then another the next day. And then a 3rd on the 3rd day!) Carolyn was in the kitchen and she went into the rec room and saw the cats playing, and she heard a squeak. Then Oranjello started running towards her to the kitchen, and that's when she noticed the rodent hanging out of his mouth. He went to the utility room and just sat there with it in his mouth for a second, then he took off back into the rec room. That's when she called out to Clint, who came down with the camera. Lemonjello was trying to check it out, so Oranjello started growling... Pretty much non-stop.


The poor mouse didn't last very long though. ): But Oranjello wasn't about to let anyone take it away from him.


That's three mice in three days. (And a snake very recently.)


Oranjello is picking off their family one by one! Excellent! Mouse droppings in your silverware drawer SUCK. Read about hantavirus, which is linked to breathing in dust that comes in contact with mouse droppings, at ... This is something the US actually weaponized for bio-warfare before they canceled that program.


ANYWAY.... 3 videos were taken of Oranjello growling with the mouse in his mouth! Here they are, from best to worst:


1) The best: Turning his growling on and off like a light switch:

2) Hard to breathe with a mouse in your mouth? Unfortunately the video got a little corrupted:

3) Crap-quality mostly-audio of Oranjello growling:
