Similar to Lyn. One day, Val and I heard a screacing sound. As one does. We bost scanned the area, listening as it were with our eyes. Then we spotted it it. In broard daylight. A cat was sitting in next doors garden. It just sat there and watched. Within the edging of a floer bed. There sat a rat. The latter was so much traunatised. It sat thyere as if frozen in time. So the episode moved on. Neither cat or rat moved. yet, ratty continued to squeal. After some time, I squirted som wate at the cat, who isntantly fled away. Ratty also immediately responded and scarpered. Now. I have sadly watched cats simply stalk and kill and then walk away. Something of a contradiction tgo the wild life fims etc. So the big question. Owning a cat. Will the cat protect you from rats.? WE once had a cat that bought home a very large rat and left it in the study. Question. Did Amber catch and kill, olr did Amber find and bring home. Truthfully I don't know. From my studies etc. I would say no. A fox will kill a rat, but I am inclined to think that rats and cats are a no go.
