  • Now THERE'S your problem!

    Awww... ain't that cute
    We used to have a vermin problem too but when we got our two little beasts (our two cats) and a hawk moved to our woods (well I gues it was already there somewhere but it moved near us)

    .. No more vermins

One crossed wire, one wayward pinch of potassium chlorate, one errant twitch, and KABLOOIE!...T'all you fine dandies so proud, so cock-sure...Prancin' aboot with your heads full of eyeballs! Come and get me I say! I'll be waiting on ya with a whiff of the 'ol brimstone. I'm a grim bloody fable....with an unhappy bloody end!

    Nono, the vermin are still quite alive and kicking. They just relocated. Didnt like the feeling of the neighborhood.

        Simple math, really.

        Five acre farm + 4 cats = lots of rabbits

        5 acre farm + 20 cats = no rabbits

        We also have no chipmucks, ground squirrels, or other vermin... lots of grasshoppers and crickets still, but with fall starting, not too bothered...

          Heck, we live in an urban area, but 2 blocks from a 1000 acre park with golf course, so we've seen (in our backyard), coyotes, peregrine falcons, racoons and red-tailed hawks. It's amazing we have a turtle and goldfish left in the pond.

            he's one of our roomates. There's 4 people who live in the house.
            Not a mechanic but a hockey player.
            Why do you ask?

              What have you got there, ocelots and cheetahs? I can't see a domestic cat trying for full-grown rabbit very often, or having much luck if it did.

              13 acres and one .177 is a different matter.

                farm cats and kitypets are not quite the same. Farm cats have some more muscle and wild in em.

                  Oh, they can do it. I watched my sister's cat, this otherwise dainty little fragile thing, shoot across the yard after a rabbit, clamp down on its neck, and then drag it under the car in the driveway. She didn't know what to do with it after that, but she took it down.

                    Ms Victoria used to bring full sized hares home. Then again, she'd bloody the muzzles of danes who got in her way.

                        Living in suburbia as I do, I found it weird and awesome to watch a hawk eat its rabbit prey on the rail of our patio one day. If they were digital, I'd share the pictures. Too bad I don't have the proper wires for my scanner at the moment.

                        You ever tried going mad without power? It's boring. No one listens to you!

                          Not often, but does happen. Is more the little bunnies that get caught, but the full grown rabbits also end up on the menu.
                          I do occasionally worry about things like opposums and skunks that the cat will probally end up the worse for tangeling with, but so far doesn't seem to have been any problems.

                            My Cat (not my Kitten, since we haven't had a mouse in the house since San Diego) is a good mouser herself, but the one mouse we had came into the house because we opened the back door to let the dog in/out. Our cat was stalking it, and in came our dog ( the mouse was in the kitchen), and he started picking it up and tossing it in the air and letting it hit the ground before throwing it up in the air again. He killed it and we took it away from him and threw it in the trash outside.
