Mine has a diameter of approximately 1 ft. How large must I make

Have you read Charles Dodgson (a.k.a. Lewis Carroll) on the question

No, but I look forward to hearing where he wrote that.

If all the animals are reasonably spaced, I guess the number killed
per unit time is proportional to the product of the number of cats and
rats.
