Felicity has been doing her job as a feline. She has brought in two rodents today. They are both pocket gophers, one of the main pests in the garden. Gophers eat roots and whole plants which they pull down into their tunnels. I have been battling them with buzzing spikes, gopher plants which may only work for moles, and some castor oil mix they are supposed to hate. I wish there were more hawks or even gopher snakes around to help me. That may account for the increase in gopher population. Felicity has taken it on as a cause and gets extra pats for doing so.
