Thanks for this funny yet practical advisory! I can hardly wait to see if the mole hole solution works on gophers and whistle pigs (the latter species btw is a real critter whose scientific name eludes me but is also commonly called a ground squirrel hereabouts.) I’ve been known to shove a garden hose (running, of course) down a gopher or whistle pig’s freshly dug hole when one appears in my berry patch or in my orchard near a fruit tree (oh, these furry little scamps LOVE to munch…and munch and munch…the tender roots of apple, cherry and peach trees while they shun those of pears and plums…??) ANYWAY, the thought of a water hose flooding down inside their holes sounds much worse than what happens as a result in reality. What happens is a flood (much like irrigation) in a neighbor’s pasture. These funny little animals, it turns out, have enviable hearing, and thus they are long gone before the water reaches them. That’s the story I tell my children. So yes, I’m REALLY eager to try the soiled cat litter solution. :)
