THERE’S A PACK RAT that’s been hanging around the house lately. And I’ve decided this rodent must go.
I originally took a live-and-let-the-cat-take-care- of-it approach, figuring it was only a matter of time. After all, our cat lives pretty much on the front porch, and is a natural born killer, often preferring “game” much larger than mice. Surely he would see to the matter one evening when he was not busy strangling baby rabbits or torturing gophers.
