    my cat worked. for one year lol. he thought he'd like to try the taste of a mole, but of course it was foul, so he puked it up. after that, for the rest of the year he was on a mission to kill as many moles as possible! he got 6 in the end lol but now he wont bother with them

    The only sure way to stop moles digging up the garden... is to take their spades away. Ho Ho!:hehe: Chris
