I did read your post yesterday about the damage to your wires but didn't reply.
It's too bad to see that.
My neighbor did a lot of damage to the squirrel population around here with a live trap baited with peanut butter and a 55 gal trash can full of rainwater.
But he sold out and moved to the country a couple of years ago and now they are thicker than heck around here.
The trouble with outside cats is they are killing millions upon millions of our song birds.

The tape is probably just some sort of metal lined tape that will end up causing as much problems as it fixes due to leakage and then shorting things out. I agree cats help a whole lot.

yep.. we have a barn cat that is a barnyard terminator for anything smaller or slightly larger than she is, other than livestock.

Funny. she will eat out of the same bowl as a chicken.. but cant catch a rabbit larger than she is.

we put a cat doot in the barn. no more grain loss to mice.. she can get in the equipment shed. no more rat / tree-rat problem with chewed wires.

i will supplement her feed with plain dry but she rarely eats it. gets plenty of mouse sized game.

I cornered and caught a kitten at a dairy farm a friend owns and brought it home in a feed sack.
Still do not know how I did it and kept all my fingers.
We let it loose in the yard and to this day no one has ever touched her or any of her kittens.

The only time I have ever put food out for her was when she was nursing and even then she ate very little of it.

So are we, but our property is patrolled on a regular basis by a few different cats from around the neighborhood.

Today's Featured Article - The Nuts and Bolts of Fasteners - Part 2 - by Curtis Von Fange. In our previous article we discussed capscrews, bolts, and nuts along with their relative hardness and thread sizes. In this segment we will finish up on our fasteners and then work with ways to keep them from loosening up in the field. Capscrews, bolts and nuts are not the only means of holding two parts together. When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
