This morning when I went to feed the girls there daily quota of chicken food that they seem to share with every sparrow in the neighborhood I was greeted by a bit of a surprise. Well maybe not a surprise as I did have my suspicions that something else was helping itself to the chicken food.
See isn't it cute!!!!!
The problem was..............
..it wasn't just ONE!!
Still cute, but two means there is bound to be more,
and they do tend to get it on quite often
so two becomes out of control pretty fast!!
I found Tex and assigned him the job of Rodent Control Officer, thinking he will be the man for the job. He sniffed about for a while, wandered about, rubbed up against things, got a little vocal, then basically called it a day. Exhausted he retired to the deck in the sunshine. Cheers Tex you were a star!
And I saw another one.
How many are there?
Time to implement plan two and bring in the double act!!
Oscar vocalised his disgust,
then retreated to my feet.
Sheba was more interested in her ball,
so this meant
I had to deal with them.
This meant only one thing,
To take my mind of the fact
that I was in the middle of murdering mice
I took to the garden with my camera.
I love my garden
and I am more than happy to share it
with the wild life,
But I don't love rodents.
Have you all forgotten about the mice I have just poisoned?
Ok more lovely flower photos!!
Make a wish!
Mine was that they all just fell asleep
and went to mouse heaven.
