Have always wanted a 50 to 80 pound cat.


But there are tiny miniature cats of about mouse size.

Have you considered an ocelot or lynx?  Wink


I'm still a cat fancier, always having had one in my younger days when I lived in apartments.  Have never heard of a breed as small as a mouse though.  Now that I have a big yard, it requires a big dog, or two, or three but all of my animals have been members of the family.  None have lived outside.  I've been taking in rescue dogs for three decades now.  A few I kept but most I got back to health, worked with them on their people skills, and then found them permanent homes.

I wonder if your Cockalier knows he once resembled a wolf in the wild?  Laughing

Close family member once had an African leopard while pioneering.


Have considered Cheetahs, but they're too skinny looking, although eminently trainable. Unfortunately their claws don't retract and they love to run a lot. They do have a good sense of humor.


Other cats are very hard to train safely, maintain as trustworthy pets, and are often too dangerous. The big ones eat a great deal, which is economically difficult.


One breed of little domestic cats are from Britain. Wonder if they might be good mousers. They're small enough to go through mouse holes; but are they tough enough to take on opponents of equal weight and size?
