“WTF?! I’m no animal expert but isn’t that what cats like to do?”

“Dear PoPville,

I recently submitted an application to Home Alone Feline Rescue to adopt an adult cat. On the application they asked the reason for wanting a cat, to which I innocently replied “to be a mouser” (because I live in hill east, and you known, we have lots of rodent issues here). They rejected my application on the grounds that “We do not place any of our cats to be mousers.” Wtf?! I’m no animal expert but isn’t that what cats like to do? And is the only “good” reason for adopting a cat “to hang out with me Friday nights while I stuff my face with Chunky Monkey and watch bad Lifetime movies?” And is there such a demand for adult cats in DC that this poor kitty Donny will get snapped up by someone from from the anti-mousing cat lover constituency? Can anyone shed some light on this please?”
