Lissen, we could maybe negotiate a swap - one Mk XCIV scary stick for 25 yards of electric fencing, if you throw in a rubber collar.
Deal ... ??

Hmmmm I'll think about it. Would the stick come with the lithium battery or the bog standard 4 AAAs held together with masking tape?

I have to report the very unfortunate demise of Rooney, the neighbourhood cat, beloved by all.
He was apparently poisoned - I assume he ate a mouse/rat 'cos he was a real hunter.
Within cat marching distance from me there are 2 chicken pens (2 separate neighbours) and the finger of suspicion points to at least one.
Very sad 'cos he was a very charismatic moggie and is missed by all :rolleyes:

Very sad :( Despite what I may say about cats on this forum I would never harm one. It is a fair guess as to where poor Rooney picked up the poison. Cats can cover quite a large territory on their nocturnal wanderings so unless the poison can be possibly identified the source will probably remain a mystery.

I seem to have become the toilet for the local cats. I have always had a few deposits but never the frequency that I'm getting now. We all know that cats seldom soil their own garden and to that end I make my garden a least welcoming as I can. Yesterday I spread holly and bramble prunings around the parts where the most recent deposits had been but noticed today that an area of pea gravel had been disturbed and found you know what. I have lived at this house for 34 years now and that is a first. :hissyfit: :grumpy:

That is cats alright JS. Always someone elses garden. They know they are welcome in mine, and run as soon as they see me.

I'm sure Willpar doesn't need welcome cats as they will just rock-up uninvited.

Just seen this, should have been NOT welcome in the garden, but they do scarper as soon as they see me. Lady across the road that moved in around three years ago has got two of them. Did notice that one has a bell, but not sure about the other one. But they are getting the message when they see me.
