Discovering after 4 months of ownership that my lawnmower's got headlamps.

 

Pays not to read the manual too thoroughly so there're some pleasant surprises down the line!

 

 

So you missed them badly when mowing in the dark? ;-)

On Tues, the local SPCA rescued four tiny kittens (no older than three weeks old) but couldn't catch their mum. Today mum was caught and reunited with her babies. Such a good outcome for all.

I didn't know cats had kittens in winter. I thought it was just spring and fall.

I was surprised to see some that were actually born in winter. Not a good time for them to be born. Apparently they were under someone's house. Now they're all inside a warm building and safe. :)

TIL from the article about our ex PM selling his beach house to the ANZ CE who was just sacked.


The beach house was in a street called "Success Court".


If you were writing some kind of parody about the egocentric and self-congratulatory antics of one-percenters, that street name wouldn't be believable.


I'm guessing you've never experienced the self reverential glory of Omaha....

Got two possums in 3 days using a Timms trap. Actually 2.2 possums - one was a pup.

 

This is in suburban Glenfield ( Auckland), and no bush or reserves around. Plenty of mature trees though.

 

Purchased and setup on Saturday, caught Sunday, and Monday nights. On one piece of apple.

The Chilies are growing well at temperatures over 35°C now. It's time for a fresh Thai Chili.

Well if you baited it with meat then possibly not, but cats (while very curious) , really aren't interested in Apple slices.

 

Also, cats have quite wide heads with larger ears and possums quite small heads and ears.

Haven't caught a cat yet - and there are plenty of neighbourly roamers ...

 

It takes a bit of force to trigger the release - meaning the possum has to get a good bite on the apple, and give it quite a yank before the trap is released.

 

Cats may stick their head in out of curiosity, but I don't think they'll take the bait.

 

Interestingly, with the last possum that was trapped, something had a go at its scruff of the neck - there were bits of fur all around.

 

Not sure if it was another possum, rats, or birds.

 

No more captures in the last 5 days.

 

Rats next ....
