|The mouse, apparently, was incapable of doing the standing broad jump. To do a standing broad jump, you stand on a line, throw your arms forward, and jump as high as you can. The hope is that your arms will propel you forward. It is a very difficult athletic feat. It used to be an Olympic event, but it was eliminated in 1912. Apparently, most people cannot do a standing broad jump. To do a successful jump, most people need to have a running start. There are still plenty of Olympic jumping events that involve a running start.
The mouse was removed from the house and was placed in a wooded area, where it can learn to enjoy nature and eat whatever mice eat in the wild, which, apparently, does not include cat food (when the mouse was not in the sink, it was taste testing Zoe’s cat food).
