That’s a brilliant idea! Using cat fur as a hedgehog-friendly non-lethal rat deterrent. Cats don’t hunt hedgehogs, because they’re too prickly to be worth bothering with, so hedgehogs aren’t scared of cats at all, but one whiff of a cat’s scent and a rat will run a mile. I’d never have thought of that. You’re a genius. You’ve figured out something else cats are actually useful for, besides making humans extremely happy just by existing.
