Rats And Cats

Here I am trying to simplify my life and along come things to complicate it.

Rats for instance.

Ailz bought the rodent repeller and we've had it squweaking for 24 hours. I think it's having an effect.

And then Matthew turned up and he and Julia had their terriers rummaging through the undergrowth. Something fled like an arrow.

So I squared up to Ailz and said, "Look, you know you want a cat and if you push for it now I'm not going to put up any resistance. If I were you I'd move while I had the chance."

So tomorrow lunchtime someone from Celia Hammond's Animal Trust (CHAT) is going to come and check us out with a view to rehoming a couple of her ferals. Perhaps it'll be Celia herself (swoon).
