Maggi-Mittens (who is rather larger than this now)
last night presented me with her first rodent - one adolescent ratling - alas, not as cute as this fella.
Unfortunately, her skills did not extend to dispatching the critter which ran under the sofa. After half an hour or so of sniffing about, M-M decided it was time for a snooze and promptly lost interest.
Sofa got pulled out - no ratty to be found. Awoken last night by scrabbling - damn thing's in the bedroom now, hiding behind very heavy furniture and under-the-bed boxes. Cats know it's there but seem incompetent to deal with it. Rats!
Arranged to borrow mousetraps and walnuts tomorrow.
