Steve and I can get the damned web-cam to work indoors, but every time we take it out to the barn, the signal goes dead within 10 minutes. I even bought a big ol' antenna, but that didn't work either. (Good thing because it would've looked fucking ridiculous sticking out the roof of the barn.)
Yesterday, I took the web-cam back to the store, swapped it for a different model, and voila!
Or, as Steve likes to say, viola!
It fucking works!
Now I can see what Mama is up to without disturbing her.
I've got one trap set up in the barn, where she's most comfortable, and another set up elsewhere in the yard, where I often see her hanging out.
