    When I went outside this morning, I found this next to the back door step. It has puncture holes around it's neck. Hank was locked in the house and Cash would have done a lot more damage to it, I'm sure...so that leaves Nigel, my trusty outside-kitty! This makes number TWO (that I know of!)

    I'm so glad he got it before it got my chickens!

    Hank sniffing it--and boy it is stinky! I've never smelled one before...but they must have a musk?

    Quote:Yeah, the dogs are awesome...and the cats earn their keep! LOL Nigel does get birds but mostly pests...starlings, brewer's blackbirds, english sparrows...all things that transmit disease & mites! [​IMG] He also gets snakes, quail & once I took a bunny away from him, too. He gets LOTS of mice and even the occasional pack rat.

    Quote:Long Tailed Weasel, I believe. They're found (although not always commonly) in almost all of the United States, if that's where you live.
