Two mice in a bucket is not better than one in a trap.
When I left the house this morning, I found the Mouse Fairy had left a gift in the five gallon water bucket. Since several of these little critters continually evade the peanut butter baited traps in the house, I guess the Great Mouse Fairy decided to take pity on me and leave me two on the doorstep with no effort whatsoever on my part.
They were freezing and very afraid, poor little guys. I took them to the east end of my property and let them go. Hopefully they can survive there. Hopefully it is so far from my house that they will not find their way back!
They tug at your heartstrings when they look at you with those little black eyes.
The gate of freedom.
