Every day we playing cat-and-mouse
An English idiom has a deeper meaning for Budden who’s nickname is “Mouse"
Cat and mouse, often expressed as cat-and-mouse game, is an English-language idiom dating back to 1675 that means "a contrived action involving constant pursuit, near captures, and repeated escapes. The "cat” is unable to secure a definitive victory over the “mouse”, who despite not being able to defeat the cat, is able to avoid capture. In extreme cases, the idiom may imply that the contest is never-ending.
So Mouse(Budden) is constantly running from the Cat(Black Cloud) while never being able to defeat it no matter what he does, he can only manage to out run it.
In colloquial usage it has often been generalized (or corrupted) to mean simply that the advantage constantly shifts between the contestants, leading to an impasse or de facto stalemate.
