Sparky and Bennie were shown the door last night.
George had spotted a rat having a feast on some birdseed which had fallen under the old apple tree.
The girls were having a nap - we cruelly woke them, and popped them outside, near to where the rat had been and then we nipped inside and shut the door, quickly!
Eventually, as it was a cold night, we let them back inside to warm their toes and fill their tummies before settling for the night.
Grandson Harry ran across to our house today, shouting that he'd seen a dead animal... Upon investigation it turned out to be a very large, dead rat! Unfortunately this isn't a photo of our dead rat, I forgot to take one.
Can't take the triumph away from the girls though, whether by team work, or one working by herself (they do both) they got their target!
Fish suppers all round tonight.
