The Crop Watcher

By Fatima K - June 21, 2013

There was a conversation someone had this week that has really stood out for me, and it went a bit like this:

It started off as a normal conversation, until I asked her how she was, when she responded with “ughh, not too good, I’m fed up!” So I asked her what was wrong and when she told me I couldn’t help but laugh!
“Well,” she said, “I planted some things in the garden, and the minute I turn around, its all messed up!”
“Oh," I didn’t really know what to say – I had no idea what she meant!

“Well,” she continued, “I did some investigating and found out that I have a problem. A pest. A cat.” That took me by surprise! I expected her to say something like there were tiny green bugs crawling all over her greens, not a cat!
“So what did you do?” I asked, and said that in the end she gave up, just took what she could and didn’t bother anymore. Seemed fair enough to me!

When I asked her how she knew it was a cat, she told me that she’d keep watch. Yep, that’s right; she kept watch. “But somehow,” she said, “That cat still got hold of them! I’d sit outside and or watch from my window, and every time I saw it I managed to chase it off. It kept coming back, so then I got fed up and gave up!” 

So I've included a photo that I took - Look at him, watching so intently!
