Hmmmm, we have a squirrel in the attic. I have to come up with a plan to remove the rodent.
Firebomb... nope, too messy.
Machine gun.... nope, too messy
Shove one of these worthless cats up in the wall to chase him out... nope, the cats are strictly ornamental. They don't chase anything but each other and we're lucky to get them to eat something out of a bowl, much less something which runs from them.
