oh, rats

So now that we are dogless, a small black cat has been visiting our backyard. It’s kind of cute, except that it has been bringing gifts to us.


Eight of them in two days. Well, seven really. The eighth was actually the sprinkler head. But it looked like a rat.

There is a phone number on the tag, and I’d like to call the owners (not that there is much they can do about an outside cat who thinks it’s being kind by bringing us offerings of rodent). Steve is thrilled that the rats are being thinned out, and he doesn’t have to set the traps.

He’s asked me to tough out the week with the cat.

He so owes me.

    The cat at the B&B, sans balls, sans front claws, got 2 squirrels and 2 rabbits during the 4 days we stayed there. The Boston poets also staying there with us scowled and called it bad, probably would have belled it if it were theirs. I imagine the cat would have dealt with that as well. A fierce small predator doing its best to keep us fed
