    some of you may have seen my boat....really ugly.....but hey it floats.

    well went out a bit ago to see about moving it around to the front of the property to get it ready for some fishing... have not really even looked at it since i parked it in june or so.

    seems that the local rats/mice/ ???? all sorts of critters have moved in and had a feast on the wires/pdf's and just about anything else they could get there little mouths on. glad i had pulled all my gear out of it. never thot they would eat anchor line....

    time to get rid of the cat i guess...she is not doing a thing!!!!

    oh well, just had to vent a bit.

    hope all is well in your neck of the woods.

    Since you are in California, you must do the following;

    1. 20 year environmental impact study.
    2. All animals affected must go through a relocation impact therapist.
    3. Pay UCLA, USC and UC-Berkley $1,000,000 each, to study if any of the affected animals is on any organizations cute/threaten/endangered species list.
    4. Find a suitable relocation habitat, for the affected animals.
    After you have done the previous steps, the "State" of California may let you transfer the animals and use the boat.

    Any other state and you could put D-Con out for the vermin.

    a good jack russel terrier or rat terrier works better on mice and rats than a cat.but if you use one of them dont put out the d con.

    The best cat for killing rats is a small terrier.
    They go at it as a job and with a vengence

    I say use a pellet gun, just be sure to tag the rats with the california lead disclamer.
