Yesterday, one of my fur babies got his paws on a letter I’d received and gaily ran into the yard to tear it to shreds. As I chased after him I skidded to a halt behind the trampoline and gaped.
Those rat cunning little bastards have extensively excavated the lawn behind the trampoline.
I hadn’t noticed because the holes have been carefully dug exactly behind the Springfree so they can’t be seen from the house.
I was NOT happy about the discovery.
The above photograph doesn’t quite show the true horror of it. There are little ditches EVERYWHERE.
And I’m wondering what you do about little furry bastards who excavate your lawn … other than euthanise them.
I’ve already toyed with the idea and decided it would upset the children too much.
So, what’s my plan B?
Can doggie trainers sort it out? Is there some sort of bitter spray for the grass like you get for fingernail biters?
What do I do???
