Scaredy Cats: Felines Fail to Catch Mouse on Belfast Patio

A cat and her kittens have some work to do on the mouse-hunting front as they failed to catch a small rodent running around a patio in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Nina Boyd told Storyful she recorded this footage of her cats and the not-so-little mouse on August 2.

“We thought that our cat and her kittens were trying to kill a mouse or rat but it turns out they were scared of it and completely useless,” she told Storyful.

The footage shows a gray cat and her kittens following a rodent seemingly without any idea of what to do with it. At one point it becomes unclear just who is chasing whom. Credit: Nina Boyd via Storyful
