It Wasn’t A Nice Surprise April 18, 2017

Filed under: Gardening,Rats — Janet @ 12:11 am

It wasn’t a nice surprise – in fact, I screamed.  I was merrily doing my gardening when I almost absent mindedly spotted a long tail – leading to a very large rodent – A RAT.  He was so life like – I asked him if he were alive.  Afraid to stay near him, afraid to leave him unattended, I looked around for a big stone.  Failing that I went over to get my shovel.  I returned and he was still there.  Honestly he was so lifelike.  I was sure he would bolt once my back was turned.  But no actually I had plenty of time to get my camera.  But I just wanted to get rid of him as quickly as possible.  So I dug a hole and turfed him in.  And in fact I felt sorry for him.  Poor Ratty.  Should I praise the cat??  I wondered.
