House cats don’t have the necessity to hunt because they are taken care of by humans, but the instinct doesn’t go away. That’s why we can see cats playing with their prey and not killing it completely.
A funny video of a cat letting a mouse drink from its water bowl went pretty viral. Benjamín Sagredo who is a cat owner is from Punta Arenas, Chile. He shared a short video of his cat Simon just staring at a mouse and it blew up on the internet.
Benjamín Sagredo was hearing weird noises from the kitchen. The first the man didn’t take much notice of it, but eventually, he found out what it was all about.
Turns out, he had a mouse living in the kitchen. This was very surprising to him because he has a cat. “I decided to record it. I thought no one would believe me.” – He said.
In the video, Benjamin was telling Simon to catch the mouse, but he was allowing the mouse to drink his water and just staring at it and seemingly petting it, he reaches out his paw, but very carefully and not menacingly at all.
Benjamin, who is filming this, finds the situation both funny and absurd.
Simon is a sweet cat who grew up with two dogs but Benjamin still was surprised by the friendship with a mouse.
Benjamin also shares that he befriended the mouse too and named it Chefcito, which means Little Chef in Spanish. “He’s been back several times. We love that Simon accepts him. He’s a very affectionate and sociable cat. If Chefcito keeps coming, we’re going to have to adopt him.”
