A real life Tom and Jerry scenario unfolded last week in Reigate, Surrey when a feisty wood mouse came to blows with a hungry tabby who was just trying to enjoy a quick snack.
According to a witness who had a bird's eye view of the match-up, the feisty rodent confronted his captor with tiny blows that left the confused kitty stunned in defeat. The witness claims the one-sided battle went on for nearly 10 minutes before the mouse retreated under the fence. The victorious vermin was later found in a greenhouse next door, where a neighbor said "he refused to run off. He was probably waiting patiently to smash a flower-pot over the cat's head!"
I guess the old saying remains true: It's not the size of the mouse in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the mouse!
