Makes me wonder if there was a mouse that didn't make it. Fur is armor, and the fluffy ones are nigh indestructible.
Maybe, but they woke early in the morning--something like 4-5am brawling like they were REALLY gonna kill each other, knocking stuff off on to the floor. Like 2 intact toms fighting over a female in heat.wings wrote: Wed Sep 08, 2021 9:40 pm Makes me wonder if there was a mouse that didn't make it.

I figured. Tough love!

When we were down in Abaco in July for the first time in 18 months, I took a load to the local dump in our 20 year old Honda Stream and when I opened the third row and move around the seat, I found that the box of tissues in the car had been emptied, the tissues shredded and I had a nest--OF LIZARDS!!!BearPaws wrote: Thu Sep 09, 2021 1:28 pm
We are now in the process of "de-mousing" our house--including having the ducts cleaned, considering removing the blown-in insulation to replace it after cleaning what mess rodents have left in/under it, and so on.
It's possible--probable, in fact--that the rodent problem existed before Daisy joined the household. We are certain that she has exacerbated the problem. It was with some regret that we had to rehome her to a friend's barn, where she will be able to enjoy her hunting with no restrictions.
As much as I enjoy cats (the old saw about "the more I know about people, the more I like my cat" holds for me, and has for half a century), her extreme hunting outside the house but not inside, and her tendency to bring live prey animals in the house, was untenable for us. I certainly wasn't going to euthanize her over it, but I had to find a solution that was humane to her and to us and that protected our physical health (mouse crap in HVAC ducts is a biohazard we aren't willing to keep dealing with).
And they take up less space when you work on them.lurker wrote: Sat Sep 18, 2021 8:25 pm i'm actually contemplating buying a motorcycle because i could maintain it myself. wtf.
Usually much easier to work on than cars--easier on the back, too. Still, they aren't as simple as they once were. And space can be very cramped.

I cringe every time I walk past the frozen food cases and see those frozen vegetables with their own plastic steamers. Some are recyclable and some aren't, like take out food that is put in plastic containers. There are so many paper containers that work just as well and are biodegradable especially for takeaway foods.lurker wrote: Thu Sep 09, 2021 9:14 am the big problem with plastic

i try to recycle as much as i can, but most of it ends up in a landfill anyway.
the solution i suppose is to stop buying things and their packaging.
