I had good luck with a cat who liked to kill chipmunks, until he died. I can
take some credit for that, since I drew chipmunk stripes on his toy mice when
he was a kitten.

When we had a horse this was the way we kept the mice/rats in the stable
under good
control. I was never very happy with the ethics of it, (it takes a long time
for them to drown,
and I always worried about causing sufferring, ["of a rat!", you say... yes,
even rats have
feelings.], but it does work, (at least with mice and rats).
