is a marmot – essentially a giant squirrel – which eats grass, leaves, flowers, fruit, grasshoppers, and bird eggs. Apparently, they are overrunning Prosser (Wa), and people are worried about their pets: “Can you imagine what they’d do to cats?” asked resident Dick Bain.
Yes, Dick, I can. They’d do absolutely nothing to cats, they’re rodents. Even a capybara at 70 to 170 pounds wouldn’t take out a cat. Scheesh! Then again. there is one imaginary rodent that can take out any cat.
