Almost time to go out on another rat patrol. The damn things creep me out almost as much as the zombies. #zombie #zombies #zompocalypse

We spent the morning pumping more of that homemade poison gas into known rat colonies that have been hit before. More always move back in.

They eat the flesh of the rats killed before. I guess rats have always been cannibals when their population and food sources boom and bust.

The gas has been more effective than poisoning the meat directly, so these return trips are fairly routine for Fort NTC's rat patrols.

I counted 8 feral cats yesterday and 5 more so far today. Their numbers are up as more litters survive searching zombies and waves of rats.

Fort NTC itself is full of cats. They protect the stored food, and even the crops growing over summer. There's a cat-breeding program there.

In case you were wondering, the rats don't eat zombie flesh. They leave the bodies of the dead we've downed alone, even when they're hungry.
