I was out in the barn doing evening chores, namely brushing the new goat, Adina, when a rat ran across my foot! I hate rats in the extreme! This was bad enough to make me nearly scream like a girl (my being a girl doesn’t have any bearing on the phrase) and jump up on the milk stand with Adina. I didn’t really scream, just squeak. Like I said, I do NOT like RATS! Looks like he’s living under the chicken coop, so I now have to trap and kill him (I really hope it’s a him, not a her).  Yuck!

    I feel for you. I hate them too. Ugh. Good luck with that.
    Maybe you need to borrow some cats!

    I don’t know what I would do if I saw a rat. Mice make me mad and I just stomp on them, but a rat is a different matter. Definitely sounds like Trap Time.
