    [thezip]: Amazing speed and stealth in that one.
    [GotToBTru]: You can't tunafish, but some seafood companies can tunafish. More fun with English.
    [virtualsue]: a veterinarian told me to cut down on my cat's food. i said, when i do that she just catches more mice
    [thezip]: My dogs are also excellent mousers, at least that's what they tell me.
    [GotToBTru]: our beagle has dispatched 3 rabbits to the Great Hutch in the Sky since March.
    [thezip]: I can always tell when the dogs have been mousing, as there is a concentric ring of mud around the end of their snouts when they do.
    [thezip]: As for more physical evidence, that always seems to be missing somehow
    [Rabbi Bob]: We have a Jack Russell: off the leash she is a torpedo against mice, rats, chipmunks and squirrels
    [Rabbi Bob]: Doesn't eat them, just snaps, kills, drops and moves on.
    [thezip]: Efficient, that one.
