Lost Our Mobile Mouse Traps ... "Mouser" To The Rescue!

 

Lost Our Mobile Mouse Traps ... "Mouser" To The Rescue!We lost two of our mobile mouse traps this year and have been surprised at the consequences.  Our two best mousers, Chester and Stash, so named because he had a bright orange mustache, both passed at ages 19 and 17.  After missing the kitty offerings at the backdoor … vole and mouse remnants … we started finding other “gifts” in the form of little black pellets.

 

The combination of changed weather, and lack of outdoor cats created an amazingly fertile rodent situation.  The alfalfa fields had voles like never before, and mouse sightings in the garage were soon common place.  We missed our old cats and their contribution to the household! 

 

The rodent population reached a point where action was necessary.  A dozen traps and high body count later we are getting a handle on the garage situation just ahead of the winter months when many rodents try to move inside. 

 

We also took the best step – we got a new mouser.  His name is “Mouser”, and he’s a definite keeper.  He has big paws to grow in to, and a great disposition.  He is currently assimilating in to the household,  getting to know the dogs and other cats.  He is holding his own, eating with the dogs and getting his own sleeping spot on the bed. 

 

He is very curious about the garage, even made a couple of breaks into it over the past week.  Mouser is destined to a great existence – the best of both worlds.  He’ll have all the time in the garage and fields that he wants to hunt, and will undoubtedly spend his sleeping hours on a soft pillow somewhere in the house.  Chester used to sleep everywhere – in the chicken coop with the chickens, on top or underneath things – was flexible, curious, and interactive with his world.  

 

Mouser seems to have much of the same personality and came to us the same way … a rescue.  He could be a 20 year cat – we hope so the more we get to know him.

Lisa, we have a great little mouser too.  And living on the farm, it is very important that she do her job.  She does!  In fact, she has brought gifts of dead bunnies to the back door..
