It was a big surprise to find this critter in the MOUSE trap that is set by the back door, behind a step stool so the terrier wouldn't set it off. It is a FIRST. We have not ever caught one before. There is absolutely nothing, nothing at all around the cabin that we know of, that would attract these. We don't have a compost pile. We don't throw peelings or anything out on the ground. Maybe he was looking for a warm winter shelter? We missed his demise by minutes as this picture is NOT altered.
The poop scoop, formerly an old coal scoop, measures 4 inches across by 7 inches long, not including handle. We wonder where all the feral cats that live in the woodlands here were, when this guy was wandering through.
poor old pup. i'm sure he'd prefer to be young again and finding that rat.ReplyDelete
Aw cut Pal some slack. He has to be eligible for dog social security benefits.ReplyDelete
I love Pal....he did his work in his youth, now it's time for a blessed retirement. Is that pile of cookies for everyone? I'll take one.ReplyDelete
Ewwww, the critter is huge. And, that's why I think any city/county should consider keeping the Feral Cats!!!
