Re: CULT: moles

From: monashee@junction.net

I have no experience with moles but lots of battles with pocket 
gophers which are worse because they are vegetarians not 
carnivores as moles are.

I concur about the value of a good cat.  For several years we had 
an orange gopher killer who probably was worth his weight in gold 
at the nursery over the years. After his sudden disappearance last 
year (probably as a coyote snack) we had to resort to poison. This 
method is time consuming and for me at least rather nerve 
wracking owing to the precautions which must be taken.

To my delight yesterday, one of our new cats (a big grey bob-tail) 
came trotting up with a big gopher which he presented to me. 
When I declined he sat down and ate every molecule of the gopher 
and slept most of the remainder of the day. I am pretty sure now 
that he knows the technique and the taste, that we will have a 
valuable assistant. Not every cat will do the job.
