This traditional Chinese chase game can cause much screeching and excitement! Play outdoors - or indoors, if you have a large room. It is also known simply as "Cat and Mouse".
A mouse is a small rodent with a long hairless tail. Some people hate them - and despite their tiny size find them very frightening! Others love them and keep them as pets. The most common type of mouse is the house mouse. In the UK and in other parts of the world you can also find the field mouse.
