Those little guys are cute. To a point.

This is outside my front door. After the snow cover melted I saw this. It's a small area. A large portion of our backyard is covered in these trails formed beneath the snow that sat there for weeks. We don't have mice in the house or in our camper trailer so that's good but I haven't seen this before. I wonder if their numbers are way up or they're always there but I haven't noticed beyond an occasional hole or dead one in a window well. The neighbors cats are here a lot --- now I know why. I suppose we're going to get more snakes now, too. I hate to have to kill the mice but....

I think that I've seen this movie. Isn't this where the old man becomes a famous electrician with the help of the mouse who he keeps under his hat?

Is he sure it was a mouse, and not Amin?

Nah, this the one where the witches put a spell on some kids and they turn into mice.

Years ago, my apartment gained a secondary resident. A little gray mouse who meant no one any harm.

I was very lonely, and I loved that little guy. He ate better than I did.

I named him "Double click"

I don't know for sure, but I think those tunnels under the snow were made by voles, aka field mice. They are not interested in coming in your house or bothering you at all. They will eat your vegetable garden, though.

If a mouse feels the need to tidy your workspace, you may be ... a redneck.

I believe I saw a big orange ogres on the golf course the other day.  It was surrounded by guys in dark sunglasses who I assume were trying to keep it away from children.

My stepkids and I used to joke the same was true about cats.  "There's a cat in my room."  "Oh geez, I'll bet there's another ten or so in the walls.  Go get the pickaxe from the garage, we've got to get them out."

Years back, I didn't empty the lawnmower bag at the end of fall, and just parked it next to the shed...

I go to pull the thing out the next spring, and it's a little stuck on some grass that is coming out of the side discharge chute(rear-bag mower). By the time I traced everything out, there was a trail through part of the grass, under the shed, into the mower, and up into the mower bag where something had built a farking nest. But we didn't have mice in the house, so that's good.

Agreed. I was going to say the same thing. And if there's no vegetable garden they'll just continue to gnaw on the roots of the grass.

One year I started up the tractor for the first mow of the year.  get half way through the Front yard, an baby mice start dropping out of the air cleaner. I lift the hood and the momma mouse is inside the fan on the top of the motor...  Good times.

Voles. They make tunnels in the snow and graze the grass all winter. The longer the snowpack takes to thaw, the more complex the tunnels get.  Moles make the complicated ones just in the snow that sometimes have trampled grass, but voles eat it. Mice estavate and can't be farked most winters (if outside.)

We had fricking shrews get in this year. They don't  always die when caught by mousetraps and cats don't want to go near the venomous little farks, and they will pull their stinky selves off of glue traps.
(eventually the two of them got killed enough by mousetraps, but literally the same two came back.)

Good gracious I hope not... Fairy tales tend to be really nasty morality tales that never work out for the protagonist and usually end in lots of blood.

<grew up reading Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Anderson book that had PLATES rather than illustrations. You know, before Disney.>

My favorite line from Cinderella: "Look back! Look back! there's blood on the track!"  from the birds after the sisters amputated their toes.

Then the birds pecked out the eyes of stepmom and stepsister at the wedding.
Nope... Definitely not Disney.

The house we were in last year, we got rats... They were doing freeway construction and the goddamn things relocated. Snap traps stopped working because they were too goddamn smart. We ended up having to use a combo of glue traps and a BB gun to put them out of their misery. My dog took one out one night when I just winged it and it tried to run. I finally figured out what her 'pounce with two paws' behavior when she was playing really was, it's her kill move. Damn house had too many ways in for critters. We'd never gotten rats before though, just a few mice in the winter. The freaking rats would actually fight at night, you could hear it.

Coelacanth: I really can't believe what I'm seeing.


I saw one on AFHV like decades ago where the parents were pissed at the kids for "stealing cookies" and the kids swore it wasn't them. Parents put up a camera and video taped the world's smartest mouse jumping on top of the side facing screw-on lid, then running counterclockwise on it to unscrew the farking lid, popped it off, then it jumped down, nicked a cookie and left. This is pre-CGI worthy of note.

You tell me how something with a brain the size of a pea worked that out.

BTW, with the mice packing to leave, we really should keep an eye on the dolphins, and maybe keep an eye out for any passing Vogon construction fleets...

Over the years, our kids had a slew of pets. The rodents were always "work, work, work." They're very busy little creatures.

We found a single mouse clearing out the shed this year. We know there were more, the bags of cat food had holes in and instead of being 3Kg each, were empty. There were four bags.

The cat did leave us a dead mouse in the kitchen the other day though, so we are getting the protein back piece by mousy piece.

Vole holes. I have to cross a field to the industrial complex I work at and you can see all the perfectly neat little holes they've burrowed through the long grass all winter.
Since I'm up early I sometimes see one or two of them zipping about.

I guess that this video either proves how disconnected from nature we are, or that we're uplifting the animals around us, or both.

Not so cool story...

A mouse got into the labs, and avoided all opportunities to catch it. I finally went downstairs and procured a glue trap.

Never again will I use a glue trap.

I did in fact catch the mouse, but his hind legs and hineyhole were glued together. I balled him up in a tee-shirt with the idea that I'd take him out and release him by the stable.

Problem: major rainstorm. He got away from me and was dragging his little legs as he got away. :( I felt rather bad as to how that turned out.
