Well Meow Meow, aka, Ciara and kitty, has done an exceptional job at keeping out the voles in our yard this year. We are thankful that our yard doesn't have those road maps from these critters and that we don't have to see them. For a while there, everyday and I mean everyday, Meow Meow, was bringing me in a vole, half alive and putting it right on my cream carpet in the living room. Then after a few yellings episodes and some slapping on the butt with a magazine...she decided to then start to deposit them at my car door in the garage instead....she is learning, as I was more accepting of that than I was the house....especially when they aren't all the way dead and they escape or when she is done playing with them, she leaves them for us to find....I am not the biggest fan of the Cat and Mouse game! Although, I usually am the winner....I found the last alive mouse in the Goldfish cracker bag that I opened right in my face! I was on the phone with my friend and she was like what just happened?
