Cats Keep Catching Mice?I have 2 male cats they are brothers. They are 18 months old. They first started catching birds, then mice and rats, but now it seems they only catch mice when it's raining why is this? Does rain make mice come out more or slow them down? I'm getting at least 1 mouse a day, it's when they loose it in the house and I have to find it.
