I just watched a large rat meander through the garden, down onto the patio and round to the conservatory area. I thought our new dynamic duo, Feral Cats inc. were going to sort that problem out!
Needless to say they were both lounging around on a sofa - well one of them has an excuse, she damaged her leg somehow last night, and has to rest. The other one though was picked up and 'shown' the rat, then I opened the door and popped her out. The last I saw said rat was being chased by the cat.
I feel a bit guilty now, but that was why we rescued them from the cats home.
