Huckleberry catching a vol

Today I caught him in work mode removing a vole from the garden.

Lucy does the same thing but ends up destroying vegetables in the process.

That's why I have 2 cats in my house... to deal with the occasional rodent that wants to be warm and have food. Suki caught 2! mice last week but Tikay just took one look at them and ran and hid. Okay, so she's a companion for Suki (and me!)
