    “She is the perfect rat catcher!”

    Yes she is! We took in a feral cat 4 years ago. Poor thang was skinny so we started feeding her. We’ve got her tamed and she loves us. So much so, that she brings us rats, decapitates them on our doorstep and leaves them. We named her Jihaddie.

Play nice.
