I have a volunteer mouser that decided to come by and work for free. We've only caught a couple glimpses of him in the evenings when we go out to close the coops. He looks like he's all black and on the smaller side. I don't know where he wandered in from but I've noticed a lot fewer mice since he's been around.

@Lelanae Dry ice worked for rats? where did you get it?

MCC, yup, I agree! Cats are so cool! We have recently started fostering a cat that was at death’s door. Every little step she makes toward recovering feels so very rewarding. ♥️❤️♥️ She is the skinniest cat I have ever seen.

We got dry ice at Giant and I was very VERY careful. I had holes at that time around the perimeter of the coop--no holes actually in the floor at that time. I filled the holes as much as I could with dry ice and covered the holes with plastic, then dirt and rocks I think it took three tries before there were no more signs of rats. Apparently, when dry ice evaporates, the gas humanely kills them in the burrows. I don't feel safe doing that inside the henhouse though.

Bless you for seeing the potential in her and being willing to help. I never blame the creatures, only the unknowing or uncaring people who dont bother having their pets fixed and contributing to the ongoing problems.
I would love to see her picture in about 6 weeks, she will be sleek, shiny and happy, I'm sure!
