Albany Rodent Removal Tip: rodent trapping

Do cats keep rats and mice away?
A common conception is cats make good pets for keeping rats and mice away. Many of us have seen cartoons such as Tom and Jerry. These cartoons show a cat chasing a mouse. However, the media does not always reveal the full story of nature. The chase is only part of the story. Many things within nature also play a role. The short answer to this question is yes. Cats actively hunt mice and rats for sport. They will chase a mouse on sight. More importantly, a cat's scent is the biggest factor in the answer. A cat's scent will keep mice and rats away.

The Scent:
A cat's scent discourages rodents such as rats and mice. The scent from a cat's body sends fear to little rodents. The odor from a cat marks its territory and keeps rats and mice away. This scent lingers on objects that a cat touches or rubs against. Many animals avoid their predator's territory. Rats and mice would not come near a place with your cat's scent. They would want to avoid the risk of injury and death.

Cats enjoy hunting rats and mice. The hunt is a fun activity for them. They use their natural instincts to find and attack their prey. Cats use their sharp claws and teeth to attack rodents. Your cat may also eat the mouse after the hunt. Small rodents are part of a cat's food chain. However, rodents may carry worms. A cat can become infected with worms and you will need to treat any infection.

Rodents Can Be Harmful to Cats:
Furthermore, rats and mice will sometimes fight back when provoked. They can inflict injuries to a cat. Nobody wants their pet to suffer injuries and infections from a wild animal. Mice and rats carry diseases that are harmful to people and animals. Cats may play with a dead mouse after catching it. You do not want your cat to play with any dead rodent. Remove the lifeless rodent as soon as possible. This carries a risk of a deadly disease.

However, you will need more options if your house has a nest of mice. A cat is unlikely to hunt the entire colony of mice. You will need to use traps such as a mouse snap trap and catch trap. Those are humane traps for catching mice. You will be able to cover more ground with your cat and traps.

Last Words:
A cat is a cute and fun pet to have to be part of your family. Your furry friend is a partial solution for keeping rats and mice away from your home. Your feline will catch a few mice, but it needs your assistance with traps to remove the entire colony of mice. The best options for prevention are making your home unattractive to rodents and sealing all points of entry.
