Predators in the night

Last night, at around 2 am, I heard noises. Sounded like someone had a pick ax and was whittling away at something. I got up and went downstairs. The sound was louder - in the wall. Dammit. It was coming from my new, state of the art electronic thermostat that is part of my 3 zone heating system.

I take the cover off and dropped it when all of this fuzzy stuff falls out. Guess what was inside?

Need a closer look?


and that ain't no mickey mouse... why me?

Deborah,
you have got to move to another part of town. I mean geez! you've have mice, skunk, deer, possum, dead birds and some other hairy creatures. i say just pack up, move out and give them the house. they seem to like it, after all they've invited all the neighborhood animals. LOL

but seriously, i really feel bad for you. how much can one person take of the animal kingdom.

AWWW. You have to love that sweet face...until they start to multiply!
WE had a family of mice embedded in the insulation of the dishwasher. Couldn't figure out what the bad smell was. The droppings that heated up wen the unit was in use!
