Sasha the Protector

I am trying to protect our crops. I know I don't eat them, but they are food for Lynettea. She came out with me on her lead around dark yesterday and tried to prevent  me  from  hunting.  She  told  me  not  to  worry,  as  there  were  no  rats.
Then  she  shook  the  vine  where  it  arches  over  the  path  and  a  rat  sprang  out  and  ran  along  the  fence  rail.  If  I hadn't had  a  clumsy  human  to  manage  on  her  lead  I  might  have  been  able  to  seize  it.
It  dashed  off,  but  today  there  were  bite  marks  on  the  grapes.  The  birds  also peck  them during  the  day. I  am  at  my  wits  end,  dashing  from  window  to  window  when  I  am  awake.  Of  course  I  need  to  rest.
Here  are  some  of  the  grapes.  They  are  not  fully  ripe, but Lynettea has picked them to save them from  the  rat  teeth  overnight.

thank goodness you don't eat grapes because they are poisonous to kitties! catchatwithcarenandcody

Mom says those grapes look tasty.
We hope Lynettea appreciates that you try to protect those grapes from rats and birds.
She should reward you with some good treats :)

Good job on protecting those grapes.

I tried to lick the grapes, so that must be bad. Poisonous? I must never taste any of them.

Grapes are tasty for hoomins.
