Catherine's picture

Enemy number one

I hate mice, I guess most of us do. We live in the countryside and there are mice here; a fact of life. They usually don’t get into the house because we have a very good hunter; Tasso the cat. 

He might not be the most clever cat in the world, but he is a hard working cat. This is a 6100 sq ft house built in 1886 and it's nooks and crannies are probably an open invitation for a mouse. It’s almost impossible to keep them out, if it wasn’t for our great hunter. 

Every day Tasso makes 4-5 patrol rounds through out the house. Even if he is sound at sleep he always goes up and makes his rounds. Every floor, every window, every little cranny . There isn’t a part he doesn’t patrol and there hasn't been one single mouse in the house.
