OTTAWA, Nov. 19 (UPI) ─ A Canadian barn cat’s effectiveness as a guard cat is in question after her owner captured footage of her striking up a friendship with a mouse.
The video, posted to YouTube, shows barn cat Gypsy Rose Lee running around the yard playing with a mouse – the very animal she is supposed to be chasing out of her owner’s barn.

The cat and mouse repeatedly chase and jump on one another, but the feline never seems to be trying to kill or injure the smaller animal.

The feline may have simply been toying with the rodent, but her owner wrote he is convinced Gypsy adopted the mouse as her “pet.”
