Rats, rats and rats!!
One bad thing about being on a farm, is the rodents. I really hate the rats. Even though we keep the feed put away, we have the veggies and fruit from the store and it's impossible to keep them under wraps. So we spend a fortune on rat poison. We don't dare use rat traps because of the cats. The cats leave the poison alone. They seem to know it's not good for them.
I walked in the chicken coop a few weeks ago and I had a big hole by their door. Grrrr rats! A few days after I picked up an egg and it was empty!! The rats had cracked a small hole in the egg and eaten the inside. This means war!!! I've put poison to no avail. (not in with the chickens). Then yesterday I go get my eggs....one is IN the rat hole!! I'm so not impressed!
Yesterday my dishwasher started leaking. Again. It's only a year old and we've been fighting this problem since day one! Me thinks I want the company to give me a new dishwasher! It's even ruined my floors and cupboards.
Have a Blessed Evening
