the cat just walked in with a rat in its mouth and dropped it at my feet. Last time she did that the rat darted under the kitchen cupboards where I have no plinths and there was me, my friend, the cat and badger (my jack russell cross) all trying to catch it and it was bedlam. So this time (especially as my dog has passed away) the moment she dropped it I grabbed it as quick as I could and headed for the back door into the garden to launch it as far as I could. But by the time I got to the end of the garden it had bitten me about four times and was hanging off my finger so I could not throw it so instead left it dangling until it let go. Then I thought about grabbing it again but then thought I should probably go wash my hands asap. There was a red mark but does not appear to have broken my skin. Will ring the GP surgery in the morning.
