It is supposed to be genetic the hunting bit.
I know they don't need to have a mother train them, because I got a kitten
dumped on me and she is the best hunter and never had a bit of training. I
used to have
problems with moles here but no more.

We acquired a couple of (I hope) specialty gohper traps a month
ago. Any suggestions on a training program? I have heard that they
only hunt if their mothers trained them. We lost our former gopher cat a
couple of years ago and they have gone wild in their takeover of the whole
place. Darker = Gren (Grendal) Lighter = Kazi )kamikazi)

Hi Ann and Ellen,
Ann, We have over a half acre in
iris and it is broken up into three different areas on our 1 2/3rd acre. I
don't think chicken wire would work. Ellen, I think the gophers are
unaffected to any poison in the rhizomes. They have destroyed
several iris so far this year and nearly wiped out one large section of our
garden last year when Jim was so ill.
So hopefully, someone will have
another suggestion. Oh, yes we have tried the traps,
Got a little couch potato?
