One of the nice things about living in the sticks

is the fact that nature is all around you.

one of the bad things is that ature is all around you.

And nature is always looking for something better.
Including feral cats, possums and whatever else sees your house as a good hideout from the cold.

As you can tell by the timestamp, I just got back from taking care of a nature related incident. I don't know how many more of 'the family' are in my floor and don't want to slice up the rest of my insulation to find out.

One dead tom and I'll let the dogs cull the rest until I can want to get under the house and make it cat-proof.
...AND fix the holes they made.

-It's not a duct tape situation down there.

  1. I have found that .22 Hornet hollow points loaded in .223 generally will give an instant kill on coons and other tough skinned annimals without an exit wound. This does not work on possums, which explode when shot with a Hornet or .223. It is definitely not good in the garage. CB cap in the head at close range is my choice for a possum if I can't grab him by the tail and bag him.
