Gentle Cat Is Too Curious (And Maybe Slow, And Maybe Scared) To Catch The Bird
Ruggles the cat is like a real-life Looney Toon. Too scared to hurt a mouse (literally), he has shown a tendency to behave a little differently from other cats.
After witnessing his cat let a mouse run free several years ago, Ruggles' owner, Geoff Robinson, caught his pet investigating a blackbird that flew into the yard.
Instead of attacking the small bird, like so many other cats do, Ruggles simply got up close to get a good look, then hopped scaredly away.
