It took me a full 2 hours before I dared to take a peek at the courtyard.
And then my heart sank.
This implies several things, of course.
- My troubles are not over.
- I might have trapped the wrong cat.
- The same cat has already been released and had wrecked furry vengeance in the wee (heh heh, geddit?) hours of this morning.
- I have to drive ANOTHER (50 x 2)km and do this ALL OVER AGAIN!
Today, I’m going to Magnet Mart to talk to a person about some serious repellents. Hopefully, they do not suggest I get a dog. Arddun will be ecstatic, but I will want to punch somebody.
UPDATE: Just checked with the RSPCA. Cat was retrieved yesterday afternoon and therefore probably released last night to say hello to our hedges. I’ve just booked a cage. We’ll do this all over again next week.
