It is an oldish house, I paid an entire month's agent fee to get this damn thing so I hope to hell I don't have to move out immediately. The mice aren't trashing the house though, I only saw them flit across the floor twice.
Re: vegan cats: rest assured that if I ever get a cat I will think of this a bit harder.
I had the thought yesterday that I could combine cruelty-free eggs with vegan catfood. Possibilities.
It's interesting to note that the Guinness world record for the longest life for a cat was a vegetarian cat.
I suspect that, like with humans, different cats respond in different ways to this diet.
I think I'd prefer a more naturally vegetarian pet anyway though. Ironically, about a month ago I was thinking seriously about getting a mouse ^^
