meadow vole Barney left for us inside his cat door into our middle bedroom we use as our office. The vole was soft and already out of rigor when we returned hone. Later I found telltale innards in another room, perhaps a heart and liver. Thanks for the presents Barney
I called Gary to help me extricate the mouse. Unlike the chipmunk the mouse was much smaller; he could squeeze between the books under the desk and was more fearful of the compressed air. After almost half an hour of blocking and coaxing we finally got the mouse out onto the screen room. We quickly closed the bedroom french door because the mouse hesitated and we feared he'd run right back into our home. All in a day's work, another critter saved from an untimely death. Meanwhile we're expecting three inches of snow; stay tuned for a photo report soon.
