Cozy Nest

20170117_113758I was looking for something in the barn yesterday and went to check inside a cabinet. See who was looking back out at me from a nest of insulation gathered from the walls. I should really have scooped it all out and scattered them but I did not have the heart to disturb these babies. I abandoned my plan to get a barn cat last fall in favor of traps but clearly they aren’t working. Maybe next year.

  1. I wouldn’t have moved them, either! I don’t want mice in my kitchen, but the barn is maybe OK 😛

    I would’ve freaked out, I’m terrified of rodents. My barn cats keep their population at zero, thank goodness.

    I think mice are cute, too. I don’t mind them outside, but I draw the line in my house. But then I’m horribly conflicted because that usually involves killing then, and in reality, they aren’t doing anything wrong…just being themselves. I realize I’m the problem, because I don’t want to risk the damage they can do to my house!

    Glad it was in your barn. We are not so lucky.

    Oh oh! Mice in the house are a whole ‘nother story.
