Rastus assesses the camera for nutritional value
As with any rural setup domestic animals are a real asset for diverse reasons.
Rastus the cat came to us at a moment when we were experiencing a bush rat infestation in our ceiling-space.
While we are happy to provide a home for wildlife on Middle Path, we are less than enthusistic about providing a home within a home for such creatures and were getting desperate to find an acceptable solution.
Within hours of us deciding a cat was really the only viable option, a client arrived who was leaving the area and needed a home for a cat.
And so arrived Rastus - ratter extraordinaire who patiently tolerates all other forms of wildlife - including birds - the perfect solution to our problem.
