I was staring at my tabby the other day as it chased a small mouse out of my living room–I’d like to thank my landlord here–and I started wondering…if my cat caught that mouse, killed it, and ate it, could she die? I mean, I’m sure that’s a possibility, but ahat sort of diseases do mice carry? Would they be transmittable to the preditor? What if a dog then ate the cat? And then I, taking my cue from cheap Vietnamese food, ate the dog?
