Picture the scene (you may wish to close your eyes for the first bit): I'm having a shower. I'm wet, my hair is wet - and it's long hair, this pony has been growing for twenty years and I can use it as a blindfold if necessary - I reach for the towel, and the cat lets himself in. This is not a good sign, he prefers to have his Pink Blobs act as doorman.
Then he starts yowling. This is his "I caught this!" noise. He strolls past the bathroom and I can see it's quite large, probably mammalian. And moving. It's a mole. A live mole.
So ... throw clothes onto wet body, find glasses - kitchen so they don't steam up - find cat: mud patch on carpet, no mole. Cat looking intently at the chair under the stairs ... The very heavy chair under the stairs. Right beside the "miscellaneous pile of cr@p" under the stairs which is Herself's filing system.

Ten minutes to shift this lot, carefully (don't want to hurt or alarm the rodent, no idea how fast they can run but I do know they can dig like crazy) - it's (hopefully) contained, let's try and leave it that way.
Spot the bugger: snuggled into a corner with it's head under some "essential important object" that Herself hasn't touched in a few years. Pint glass in one hand, I grab with the other, and boom! It's in the glass, upside down, very angry and swearing it's head off in Moleman. Cat watches this process with a faintly amused "is that the best hunting you can do?" look on his furry face. Does he help? Does he buggery.

Over the road, release mole to hopefully have a good life.
Oh well, I needed to hoover under that chair, it's been a while ...
And at least I'm dry now, except for my hair.

Total today: 2 birds (dead), 1 mole (live). Remind me again why we have a cat, will you?
