It was eerily quiet when I got up at two-thirty this morning. No traffic on the highway. Then I heard that strange sound again. A “crackling sound.” Frequently, without the noise of the television, I’d wonder “what’s that strange sound?” I’d search… without success. TODAY, I discovered a mouse in the bag of bird food sunflower seeds. I “trapped” the mouse and it will suffocate in that bag. I kept the bag indoors so a raccoon wouldn’t get it outdoors. I never dreamed I’d have a mouse in the house.
OK, P.E.T.A.supporters, the wild thing is still wild. He chewed his way out of the bag. (The bag had been moved to the porch and I pray the nuisance doesn’t find his way back into my home!)
