Caturday - Raturday!

Squeamish readers look away now... because Pooboo has caught a prize bigger than we could ever have imagined. Yes, this appears to be a fully-grown rat. 

I think it must have been pretty heavy as he was walking VERY slowly up the garden. Unless it was more of a victory march, so that everyone could admire his prowess. And I have to admit it's a pretty impressive achievement. 

The old adage "you're never more than six feet away from a rat" certainly seems to be true when you live in the countryside, surrounded by neighbours who keep chickens. In fact, it's one of the reasons we got rid of our own chickens. 

This was definitely too close for comfort, even though - as you can probably tell - we observed the predator from behind glass! *Shudder* Needless to say, we are now treating Pooboo with respect and suspicion... and being extra vigilant with hygiene after handling ALL the cats. Blech.


  1. My naughty cat got a baby rabbit yesterday and the rabbit was nearly bigger then the cat as she is so tiny :) x

  2. You can imagine my reaction to this photo :)

  3. That is one massive rat! I'm not sure what I would have done with that kind of present!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
