A new family member!

IMGP4296We got a black and white, multi-purpose cat this week! He’s a cutie, plus we hope he’ll help us with our pack rat problem! I think his name is Charlie, but Mike keeps changing his mind…

OK, so we were pressured into it, sort of.

We have one smart pack rat who insists on camping out in our car this winter. Yes, we’ve tried everything to get him out of there. Leaving the hood up and traps don’t work, and poison was just a waste of money, so we got a cat.

We’ll keep you posted on the rat-cat conflict. Let’s see who wins!

Rasta and Xmas toy 2013Of course Rasta is not at all pleased with the prospect of sharing our undivided attention, but he’s slowly getting used to this tiny intruder.
