Earning Her Keep

Friday while I was hanging out in the orchard, Passage jumped out of the boulders and ran past me.

I went closer to see what she had caught.  Gopher.

These pesky rodents eat the roots of young trees and anything else they can get to.  Passage is worth her weight in gold.  She not only keeps the rodent population down in the barn, she hunts gophers in the orchard.

And then she relaxes.


  1. Wow, that was no small thing! I love my cats and all the work they do keeping the voles and mice down around here.

  2. I'm not a cat person, but we've always had a couple of cats to keep the rodents under control. I've always said they're the only animals I own that actually earn their keep! Absolutely worth their weight in gold

  3. Good cat! She is a beauty for sure.

  4. Such a good girl!! Also don't know if I've mentioned it before, but I love her name. :)


Thanks so much for commenting! I love the conversation.
