The Exterminator

Old houses and cats are a natural pairing. The combination isn’t just aesthetically pleasing; it’s practical as well. You can’t find a cuter mouse trap than a cat.

Our foundation and walls are secure. We have no rodents. However, we also don’t have any other sort of small pest. No insects. No spiders. I expected my vicious kitty to be a good mouser, but never a good debugger. I’ve seen her in action, though. I’ve caught her catching and eating a cricket and, this morning, a spider. I’m no fan of creepy crawlies, so my hunter’s wide range of prey is welcome! I wonder if she'd eat a cockroach...
