Do Cats Keep Mice Away?

By: EarthKind

One-third of U.S. households have at least one pet cat and it isn’t hard to see why.  From timeless cartoon characters such as Garfield or Sylvester the Cat to the infamous LOLcats, these animals have capitalized on certain characteristics that capture our hearts. While many domesticated cats are quite tame, and sometimes even considered lazy, they still have an impressive hunting ability that comes naturally to all felines, sometimes making them cute little pest exterminators.

Cats’ unique hunting skills have made many homeowners grateful as they certainly can help keep unwanted pests, such as rats and mice, away from a home. But, just because they can hunt, does not guarantee that your household pet will solve your mouse problem. When house cats do decide to engage in a game of cat and mouse, the results are often treacherous for the rodent, and not ideal for the homeowner when they find a dead mouse in their home. Generally, the best solution to a mouse infestation is using a proper and proactive rodent control solution.

Keep Your Cat Safe

Rodents can carry a multitude of diseases that could be harmful to a cat’s health. These pests can even bring fleas and ticks into a home which can also have an impact on the health of your furry friend. This is why many cat owners find themselves looking for the best way to get rid of mice without relying on their beloved pets to do the job, to help keep them safe and healthy.  

Common pest control solutions many exterminators use include: 

  • Mouse traps
  • Poisons 
  • Electronic mouse repellents

Some of these methods could also pose a risk to your pet’s health. Avoid the stress of having your curious pets (including your precious feline) wandering around and finding dangerous traps or ingesting harmful chemicals by using a plant-based solution for your rodent problem. Fresh Cab Botanical Rodent Repellent is guaranteed to be effective and safe for pets when used as directed.
