I was surprised (and - full disclosure - a little scared) the other morning when I went into the garage and heard a rustling noise. My first panicked thought was SNAKE.
I slowly inched around to look and discovered the noise was coming from a tiny mouse trying to jump out of an old plastic waste basket we use for recycling glass bottles.
No matter how high it jumped, it couldn't quite reach the top edge to get a grip and escape.
I'm sure you're wondering what I did with it.
I took it out to the workshop where the cat lives and left it there for a treat. We clearly need a cat here at the house.
