The exterminator stopped by for his quarterly visit to a museum where I volunteer and reported that the mice had eaten every bit of the bait he had put out last time.
Perhaps we need a cat, I suggested.
He disagreed. He said that several of his clients have reported that their cats either just play with mice or completely ignore them.
Is there some kind of social change occurring in the feline population where they are abandoning their traditional role? Or have they just become slackers?
