Rat Update

Okay just a quick update on yesterday's post, sensitive souls should turn away...
The rat got into the caged pen with Plum and chicks, they were terrified as was the rat who had somehow managed to get in but couldn't find a way out.
I had to evacuate the birds all the time keeping an eye on that rat.
Then I called my husband and asked him to come home and get rid of the rat, he told me to shoot it.
My response was that I didn't trust myself not to miss so he came home and shot the darn thing. A quick, clean kill but still horrid.

How scary, but I'm so glad the birds were all right.
