Will a Cat Keep Mice Away?

What You Need to Know About This Rodent Control Method

Will a Cat Keep Mice Away?

Cats are one of the original rodent control methods used by people all over the world. In fact, felines were valued members of the crew on ships to help control the vermin population. Does that mean a cat is a good way to keep mice away from your home in the 21st century? Read on to find out.

Will a Cat Keep Mice Away?

Yes, cats can keep mice away! As many cat owners will tell you, they might even “gift” you a rodent every once in a while. With that said, there are many things you need to consider first:

  1. Your cat should be your pet first. Don’t get a cat just for the purpose of rodent control. Your kitty might seem independent, but she is a loving member of your family and should be treated as such.
  2. Some cats are better at hunting. Not all cats are great hunters. Ask different owners, and you might hear that females are better hunters than males because they have to teach their young to hunt. Others will tell you boys are able to hold their own, too.
  3. Your cat is gifting you the mouse! Do you want to see a dead mouse first thing in the morning? No, probably not. But, your cat thinks she is giving you a great gift. Show appreciation and not disgust. She is, after all, helping you keep your home free of mice.
  4. A spayed or neutered cat will be a more productive hunter. Cats who aren’t spayed or neutered have more things on their mind than hunting. They might be out hunting for a mate, instead!
