New visitors – hmmm could it be all the stale bread I have been putting out for the birds? or the monstrous piles of seeds? or the buckets of grain for the deer? or might it be the tiny chocolate biscotti I offered them! We had 7 last night – 2 stuck inside the feeder, one on the post with its head inside the feeder and 4 on the ground! I know that I should not encourage wildlife to hang around our house but they are soooooo cute! Had another mousecapade the other day – there was a little one in the live trap. Well, to remind Gord to take him out to his garage home I put the trap on the far end of the counter where the cat proceeded to sniff the trap and KNOCK IT ON THE FLOOR. Mouse escaped of course and Gord and I slid around the floor on our knees trying to catch it – which we did. Mouse was safely transported to the garage but I was left nursing raw knees! So better outdoor wildlife than indoor!
