Thought rat control  was meant to be part of Jangle's & Tiger's job descriptions.  Some Residents must have different opinions.  Fairly sure they'd rather rats didn't  die within the walls  tho...

Not really any credit for this, & scant chance this how rat problem began.  #9 of series of dunno how many.

of...

And TGIC !     Has been rather hot and humid here...  tonight is Food Court night at the brewery.. everybody was resigned to another rainout.... I  checked all the pertinent weather maps and went out and informed all that the rain would stop and we would have good weather, with sunshine, for the evening festivities.... we got it.... I am now the official brewery weatherdude.... the water vapor map told the tale, dry area rolled in ahead of a stalled cold front... could see it coming...  building a maintenance room in the back of the building... painting and wiring now, lighting goes in tomorrow, then the heat pump.. the fun will be moving everything into it........

Hello everyboddeee!
 ^-^
='.'=

Asking cats to hunt rodents isn't 'abuse' (at least, not from the cat's POV)...it's what they're wired for and engineered to DO.

Boyfriend-at-the-time who was living in an old house INFESTED with mice. Brought my youngest cat over to deal with the problem...Misha was a Hunter...and a damn good one (note capital letter).

Jon and I went out to get some dinner...came home about 90 minutes later to SIX former mice displayed in the living room...and a cat who was very proud of himself.
"Don't worry, Mom...I've got this! Just give me a few days and I'll have 'em cleaned out!"
He did, too.


Don't know how much I'll be around this weekend...but I'm with y'all in spirit.

Good Evening Good Folk!
Just straggled back in from SoundEffects performance at Seasons Retiremt Community, where 1st chorus Queen City rehearsed for while until too-successful Guest Night (100 guests!) that got us evicted.
My thread-opening post was definitely before  opening time, expect DLC's was too.  Regret mis-spelling Jangles, made no writ notes.

embiggened a tad, harks back to performance.  Pleased to hear of sherpa18's progress, also wish to FanQ valnt9 for another Keep Calm.  Saved!

Got tale of Recent Elephant Rescue for DLC & whoever else ...
Abused Elephant Raju Sheds Tears During Rescue by Cherise Udell 7:04AM today
Raju, a 50-year old Indian elephant was finally rescued last week after a lifetime of abuse. During the rescue, when it became clear that the group of 32 people, which included ten veterinarians, were there to rescue him, big crocodile tears rolled down his leathery cheeks.
"The team was astounded to see the tears," said Pooja Binepal, a spokesman for Wildlife SOS, the wildlife rescue group that coordinated the effort.  "It was incredibly emotional. We knew in our hearts he realized he was being freed. Elephants are majestic and highly intelligent animals. We can only imagine what torture the past half a century has been for him."
Indeed, poor Raju who had been likely captured as a baby, was sold many times during his 50 years. His most recent owner cruelly chained him 24-hours a day with spiked chains, forced him to work and beat him when he did not.
During the rescue his sadistic owner tried to abort the rescue by layering tight chains and spikes on the elephant and then yelling commands to confuse Raju. Fortunately, Raju listened to his rescuers instead and soon was free.
Following his emancipation, he was taken to the Elephant Conservation and Care Center in Mathura, India. His underweight body was covered in abscesses and wounds, but he is expected to make a full recovery. Wildlife SOS is facilitating his medical care and helping to introduce him to other elephants at the center. On July 4th he took his first free steps in 50 years.
The average lifespan for elephants is 60 to 70 years, so hopefully Raju can enjoy his retirement and freedom for years to come.

My vacay starts at 7p tomorrow, Wifeys at 10p. I am fairly sure at some point between then and Monday the 21st we'll have some ocean cockroaches.

And just for the record, you can pretty much set your watch by the Caturday Wheatfield pic at 8:30 every Thursday nite.

I didn't see your egg gravy recipe post until after thread close last Caturday. I wanted to be sure to thank you for it.

Apropos of nothing in particular (other than I'm pretty sure you have a Maine Coonish cat, too) here's my cat Winslow:

We'll see what happens. They're skittish and I have no idea why. We've never had anyone over that tried to kill them. They'll eventually come out but the amount of time varies.

This is how we can always tell the pizza is here.....

Headed to camp for a couple days (just us and the dogs) a day there w/the granddaughters, and on a rainy day we may be hitting Hollywood Casino in the big city (Bangor, 20 miles/a half hour away). Plus there's a really nice restaurant that we like to hit during vacay.

Enjoy your 4 day weekend!

Got an email today from a friend with a pic of her cat getting into the cherries in her frig. She was freaked out because she said that cherries are poisonous to cats, but I thought it was only the pits that were bad. I looked at a couple of websites....one said cherries, one said cherry pits. Same with apples. One said apples.....the other said apple seeds. Anybody got any more info on that? Curious......
