Living on a farmlet You have to deal with lots of vermin
In previous years we used to have farm cats
Three at one stage and I didn’t have to worry about mice and rats and rabbits digging up my gardens
Then I had indoor only cats
Sounds nice. But outside OMG
WE HAVE HAD RATS
Now the rabbits and mice were a massive pain
But when I saw the rats. As big as the rabbits I said. Enough!
Enter these two cuties
They will be my outside, living in the back with the dogs, or in the big shed
Where ever they like
Meet Sam and Dean hunters of vermin
Here they are on th first day. I got them a week ago
Sam is the grey fluffy one and dean is the black and white
If you have ever seen supernatural the series you will know how they got their names
They have spent their time between here,
My bedroom and bathroom
And the last few days, as it’s been so hot, in the spare room
But they love it here!
They also have bonded with the dogs and as you can see Teddy won’t leave them at all!
I’ll slowly let them out to play with the dogs under supervision and then lock them back up
Until they are a few months older
I wasn’t going to blog about them. I’m nervous of all the back lash of having cats outside
But if you have ever lived on acreage you would know just big the problem is
So there you are
These two will have to take over from Buffy the rabbit slayer
She has some mighty big paws to fill
But having seen how they stalked my chickens I’m sure they will be fine
My chickens will peck them while they are small and this seems to teach them not to mess with birds
Buffy never brought home a dead bird
So this is a good thing
How bad is the vermin plague at your place?
See ya xx
