Cats are well known for hunting mice and Kisi Magnússon, the cat living on the farm Ytri-Skógar by Eyjafjöll is no exception. He often brings his prey to Gudrún Tómasdóttir, the lady of the farm. On Saturday night Kisi brought an unusual catch. When Gudrún woke up the cat had a dying mink in his paws.
