This little drama played out in my little back garden around tea time this evening. I discover that a Rat has decided to take up residence under some decking in my back garden. I happen to spy it paying a visit to the fallen scraps from the bird feeders.

2. Cat spies Rat and stalks to within inches of the feeding rodent.
3. Cat Pounces and makes a cat like grab, Rat back flips away and makes a dash for his bolt hole.
4. Cat is left trailing it Rats wake.
