Organic vole control! Good Boy!!

Hi all,

This is Cujo. He came to us as a stray in 2007, after the neighbors abandoned him when they moved out of the area. My wife named him Cujo, because he's generally very angry and aggressive with other animals :) He's a cool cat with me,though. Likes to be my patio lap-cat, in fact. He has caught and killed at least three voles(That I know of) since Tuesday night. He snagged one right in front of me last night in the garden-area. This morning, he left me a gift outside the door in the backyard. Funny thing is; since we've had him, he's always been a stud mouser,(AND a rat once,AND a couple rabbits, etc.)but I'd never seen evidence of him ever catching any voles, although he probably has. They are common enough out here in N. Colo. Then I start getting heavy into Hostas this year and he's all over it. THIS guy earns his keep all day long. I say again:GOOD BOY!!

Thanks,
Don B.

All black, just like our #1 mouse control system, Pandora. We have learned from experience to check her mouth before we let her inside - we have had very much alive mice, frogs, chipmunks etc. to chase. But no voles - yet.

Do you remember the movie "Walk On The Wild Side"? Such a cat as yours was walking the streets as credits rolled. That was back in the 1960s and it was memorable all these years. Tough guy who knows he is well off.

Sorry. I got side tracked watching YouTube for those film clips of the title intros, and forgot the link to it.

Classy black cat who earns his keep.

Here is a link that might be useful: Walk On The Wild Side...black cat footage
