I can imagine.  We got the two cats on duty (the one on the video never
dared move more than 2m from the house and thus was no help) when they
were about three or four months old I think.  They were locked in one
stable cell for a few days, and then overnight for a few days longer.
The mice were running around openly and rather visibly before that.
Already when the cats were confined to one stable cell, the difference
was staggering.  When they roamed freely, it was overwhelming.  They
couldn't have caught hundreds of mice in that time frame: it's just that
the visibility of the rodents dropped by wagonloads.  And ultimately
likely also their number, probably more because they did not dare come
looking for food than through actual killings.

Look, I'm glad that I manage dozens of views for some of the music
videos I create, some even with more "Like" than "Dislike" ratings (in
the rare case that ratings are given at all).  I don't want to find out
that videos like <https://youtu.be/CNDPpUWz6T8> would be much more
