Occassional Guest Animals, 6. (a deli-cat matter).

Here in New York there are many deli's and bodegas, and the Feeders are often running out to thier local deli to replenish essential supplies. Often when they return, they report a sighting of the resident mouser who patrols the shop. Recently though, as reported here by Gothamist, the authorities took action against one such mouser. It seems that they take a dim view of these sterling servants, ostensibly for health reasons. Therefore, our deli must remain a secret undisclosed location!
The Feeders have never reported a mouse sighting at the deli. Here's a picture of the local hero (the Feeders think it's a lady), name unknown. She appears to be taking a well-deserved nap and so we assume she was "off-duty" at the time. As well as being a tip-top mouser, she clearly likes her Fish too! She must be really smart. We'd like to meet and compare hunting and fishing notes with her!

The deli-cat is very smart to guard the goldfish! I hope her secret location does not get discovered. You are good to protect her identity and location!

Man I miss NYC. I can assure you that there are no bodega's with mousers in Surrey.

But I DID hear some foxes making weird barking sounds the other night and that's something I never heard in NY.

Swings and roundabouts.

She likes the fishes 'cuz they're so delicous! They also get the slightly gamey taste of mousie off of your tongue.

Absolutely keep her location top secret!!! She performs an invaluable service to the deli-shoppers. After all, who wants mouse turds in their deli meat?????

She's quite lovely as well.
