    My poor wife is getting quite upset. Her pleasures and things she relies on are slowly vanishing.

    First Murdock is closing her favourite Sunday paper.  The last one is out this Sunday.  

    Second, it looks like Propain  is not being manufactured any more, so chemists' stocks are dwindling. 

    She needs to be weened off these things. 

    I guess we need to get out more!   . 

    Er...... They are rats Richard.
    Woke this morning to the killing fields in the lounge room.
    It's hard to decide if this is good or bad.
    It's another pesky creature not chewing the wiring of an important appliance.
    Washing machine twice,dishwasher once,air conditioner once.
    All are a night mare to repair as no trades persons Hefei Vanuatu to repair.
    It's buy a new one or go without.
    Once sent a dishwasher for repair in port Vila.
    It was 18 months till it returned !
    Just wish she wouldn't bring them into the house via the cat door at night
    You do get used to it
    And it's not all the time.
    Sometimes it's lizards
    I'm just happy we don't have snakes on the island

    My cat brings in half eaten rabbits, I know because I stupidly walked around the bed without slippers and my bare foot crunched the remains.... Ugh not pleasant! Trixie is a catcher extraordinaire! Rats, mice, frog, rabbits and birds. Needless to say, I don't have a cat door and can, most of the time, remove alive or dead animal before it enters house. Samson just watches in sheer delight but too scared to participate. My old, now deceased, Cinders once slept next to baby birds which had fallen out of their nest and she didn't bat an eyelid.

    Totally petrified of cats...and this just confirms why. I hope those animals don't die in vain and that they go into to evening stew for the family 

    my slip up there - I missed the euphemism! Perhaps should have said fat rats, but they would be left outside 

    It looks like there is a job for an enterprising electrician. There are enough unemployed ones here.

    I expect you have looked at all options, but would metal cages, with a mesh small enough to keep out vermin, set around major appliances work? Then place poison inside the caged area to have any which slip through.

    Richard have already wrapped the base and back of most appliances.
    The problem occurs when they die inside or behind.
    It's twice as hard to remove an offending dead corpse!
    I just want her to not bring them inside to show me.
