What’s a three letter word for “rat trap”?

Cat. This is our barn cat, Marbles. She takes care of the mice and rats for us. She’s so feral that this is the first picture we’ve ever gotten of her- with a trail camera! Turns out that, in addition to being an incredibly effective pest deterrent, she’s pretty cute. We got her from an organization called, “Friends of Ferals.” I highly recommend them, especially for pest problems. (We had rats eat all of the wires out of a car last winter.) Rats, we found, are usually too smart for traps, but cats are smarter. If you get feral cats, they already enjoy hunting.

  1. Are you trying to tame her? She deserves to snuggle up in a warm home for all the good work she’s doing.

    1. I think she is untamable. This is the first time I’ve seen her face! I generally just see her tail as she runs away.

  2. That is the most adorable killer I’ve ever seen.

    My little cat killed a candy wrapper yesterday, but then she got exhausted and had to take an 18 hour nap.

    1. The poor dear. That wrapper gave her such a hard time. I hope you pet her a lot.
