But finding a tiny mouse with two babies in my compost bin made me scream like a baby. Not that it did me any good. My neighbourhood is full of houses. My husband was inside doing the income tax return. Even though I screemed as loud as I ever have, no one came galloping to rescue this fair maiden.
In total, I found 10 mice in my two compost bins. The cat was no help - the mice sat perfectly still, so he didn't even notice them. I guess cats are more like dinosaurs than I realized. They can't see stuff that isn't moving.
I'm thinking we are going to have a plague of rodents this year.
