    It will probably die of shock anyway, best thing to do would be take it back out into the garden and keep your cat in for a while.

    KILL IT, it will die of something or be eaten if it's not mobile and can get back to the nest itself which could be quite far away.

    poor wee bugger but best thing is to kill it outright rather than let it suffer.

    put 2 bells (side by side so they rub if not jingle) on your siamese.. will reduce the kills slightly, it has worked for us.

    Baby micas will probbly keep coming tho as they can't get away and now she knows where the the nest is.. tough luck.. mummy mouse will move to an new hopefully safer nest when the babies are gone.

    I agree, let your cat have it, it's in their nature to catch mice and mice carry diseases. i love animals but not those nasty things.

    Nemo is baby mouse mad at the moment! She is the anti-mouser as she finds them outside and brings them inside to show me! Still alive and kicking and lets them go, they then run off and hide so she thinks "hmm, not to worry mum! I go find you a new one" so off she goes to get me another :eek:ut:

    So then I spend half an hour trying to pull a mouse out of the dyson by it's little tail :cursing: lol

    Nemo was an indoor cat for 5 years and has only got outside 6 months ago, she has learnt quickly and is a great mouser. It is handy as i know she'll catch one if it's in the house but it's not so handy when she takes them in.
    If I see her with one I take it off her and put it outside. she doesn't eat them anyway so it's not like I am taking a meal from her, just a toy really.
