This week's issue is that of unwanted house guests. Or more specifically attic guests. Rats.
We've been gradually aware of increasing noises from above our heads but this week it has got to the point where it is waking us up in the night (and I'm living in fear that the ceiling is going to give way and they'll come crashing through) and on Tuesday night's braai, one of them made an unwelcome appearance in our paw paw tree. At head level.
Fortunately the hospital kitchen also has some unwanted guests; a cat and her 4 kittens. And I think I can see a solution to both of our problems.
