I might have mentioned this earlier, but hogs and cats sharing the same feeding sites= no rats, we have a number of feral cats who come in for a feed from the hogs dinner plates, and what we did was to try and find ‘preferences’

We thought we had ‘nailed it’ earlier in the year when the ferals went for the wet cat food and ignored the ‘mealworm/dried cat food’ we also offered.
Only to find (courtesy of people on there) that we were making a major mistake in offering up mealworms in substantial quantities.

Now we just put out enough food that both the hogs and cats can safely enjoy, if we end up with lots of fat cats and hogs and few rats…end of problem.
