RE: Need some advice...

Zem, I would set up a time for my neighbor to come over with her cat because
I find small dead birds from her cat all the time.  It is a hunter.  I'm
just not sure that cat would know what to do with a mole if it found one
unless I put feathers on that mole.  LOL!!!

On the other hand, Izzie can scare most critters with a look, but right now
she isn't up for moving quickly or digging, poor thing.  She has never been
a dog to dig anyway (which is good for my garden areas.)  She still wants to
play tug or catch, but not for 1-2 hours like before.  It's more like 3-4
minutes and she's drained.  Thus Izzie can't help me now.

I think a twisted ankle could be devastating to mom with her osteoporosis.
It could mean a direct trip from the hospital to a nursing home with all
else she has going on.  She's light and small, but not enough so that I can
carry her.  I sure want mom to get exercise walking the dog, but today I
walked it for her because I didn't want to take the chance she'd fall.  (She
was pretty "wobbly" this morning anyway and instead of using her cane, she
was carrying it!)

Yes, they eat grubs, but I have no idea how to get rid of them.  The  cats
that for me.  Last year I seemed to have them all over the place,  but I've 
only seen one or two tunnels this year.  Maybe that's because of  all the 
competition from the skunks and armadillos. I have twisted my  ankles
several times 
when I've stepped in an armadillo hole.  I'd probably  have to move far
to get away from them. <LOL>
