As you can see, I like to stand on our gangway fingamabob (wot dus av chicken wire for safety purposes for da mum). Chicken wire very andy for me coz I can do zoomies across fast when I decides I want to chase a rat. Apparently, I needs to practise ma tecnique a bit coz barkin at rats gives em a bit of a heads up you is after em!
