Sophie and her kittens enjoying
some instant milk
No, the cats didn't play cat-n-mouse with this
rat. It was heavier than they were. The rat was helping itself to the
cats' food bowl every night on our verandah while the cats blithely
watched the proceedings. We finally succeeded in trapping the beast on our
verandah and Mark bludgeoned it to death. A neighbor cooked it up for his
dinner. A month later, we killed another rat in the same way.
