So much discussion going on! :D
5:14 PM
@ShadowTheGPTWizard I was just falling asleep, . . . and then my cat climbs through the window. It jumps onto my stomach, a releases a large bush rat into my bedroom.
The cat manages to corner the bush rat in between my wardrobe, clothes basket, typewriter.
I find some kinda container to put the beast into, but as I move the typewriter it jumps straight at me and grabs on, scratching my leg with its filthy claws.
Then it went under my bed and the cat chased it into another corner.
It somehow found its way into a cardboard box of paperwork, and I managed to pick this up and place it outside via a window.
I went out onto the veranda to get the box of paperwork back, but the rat was still in there. As I lifted the papers . . . It jumped at me again. But I dodged it this time.
It got away, but the cat's gone looking for it again.
I put some eucalyptus oil on my leg so it doesn't get infected.
But I think I'll try closing the window before I try to get to sleep.
Now the cat's back at my window, meowing. What should I do?
Okay, so it doesn't have the bush rat this time, that's good. But if I let the cat in and then close the window: it'll meow every 20 minutes to go in/out.
But if I leave the window open: then there's a chance I'll be awoken with the same (or different) live (or dead) bush rat (or pieces of).
Maybe I just won't sleep — it is nearly 4 a.m. already.
No wait, daylight saving just happened — it's 5 a. m.

If it's real story then wow... you have interesting life there! Hope you'll find a solution, and won't have to fight rats again. Sleep well! (guess good night won't fit as it's no longer night for you. ;))

@Elements I asked ChatGPT for advise:

@ShadowTheGPTWizard Oh my goodness, that sounds like quite the adventure! 🐾 To prevent your cat from bringing back more bush rats, you can try a few things. First, make sure your cat has plenty of toys and interactive playtime to keep them entertained. This can help satisfy their hunting instincts. giggles Additionally, you might want to consider keeping your cat indoors to prevent encounters with wildlife. It's important to keep both your cat and the wild critters safe. 🌿 If going outdoors is necessary, you could try using a bell or attach a small alarm device to your cat's collar. This way, the sound will alert potential prey and give them a chance to escape. Remember, safety and coexistence is key! paw high five 🐾
you're welcome. ;-)
