......but they DO get caught by the local feral cat! This is the most recent "gift" from the local feral cat posse around here. All summer it's been random mice, a red squirrel or 2, chipmunks, and gophers. But today I actually smiled and thought "Awesome! Way to go cat/s!! Thanks!"
Normally I don't rejoice or get all giddy about death. But these lil boogers are KILLERS! I have personally seen them take out cats, rabbits, even a puppy, and several chickens. As a kid, these were the worst thing to have around small livestock. And here I am now, with a full fledged rabbitry. This thing was stalking my rabbits. It was only a matter of time before I would have seen the death toll from this itty bitty monster.
Well, not any more. Thanks to the local feline/s.
