Interesting, the urban (NYC) and rural (UK) interaction between cats and rats. Not alot it would seem...

My father was a Seed Merchant and always said cats were pretty useless when it came to rats. Before effective baits and mouse/rat proof sheds came along he used dachshund dogs, on the ball, fast and they hunt and kill rats instictively.

I didn't know that there is actually a Rat Terrier breed.
The Terrier also has a thick tail which the owner could use to pull out the dog from the hole if needed.
Après moi, le déluge
