Here's the situation..... We have a lot of rats. They are just naturally in this area ( I guess like most areas ) but having the chickens is just making things so much worse. We have tried baiting and trapping them but that hasn't worked at all. I keep everything very clean and take all the food away at night ( exept of course the stuff that's been spilt and on the ground). So with all my attempts to kill the rodents not working I'm starting to think a cat may be the only other option. BUT, I dont like cats, they're cute and I like them looks wise buy I don't like their personalities and most of all I don't like how they kill EVERYTHING. like birds and all the native animals. Soooo, is it possible far a cat to be able to live with chickens and only eat rodents ( I'd feed it too. I'm just meaning animal wise)? Or is this just insane for me to even be thinking.
