Department of Homeland Security

We’ve taken the first steps towards making the coop more secure. Last night I put more cat food in the coop and locked it up. However, I think the possum spent the night in the coop, becauase in the morning, I could not find anyplace where it might have gotten in, but some of the food was eaten, the dirt inside the coop was all dug up, and there was other–ahem–evidence of an animal presence. We’ll leave everything open tonight and hope he leaves. Otherwise, I suppose we’ll have to consider more drastic measures (adopting a mountain lion? I’m not sure what the next step would be in this arms race.)
