Mouse Count Update

I now have caught 11 mice in three days! This evening, after I got everyone settled in the barn I was puttering around in the feed room trying to reorganize some things. All the sheep were eating and the chickens were in their "Palais de Poulet". As I was getting ready to leave - now mind you I had only been in there for about two minutes - when I heard what sounded like one of the boys lightly taping the pen sides. It was almost a "click".
Then it dawned on me what it was. Yup...two mice had gotten caught in traps. Both were small. One just had his leg caught and was struggling to free himself, so I had to administer the final "Coup de Grace".

Where's a cat when you need one?

So far the score is:

Kathy - 11, Mice - Zip

Not bad for three days....

Hmmm. Kitty looks too cozy to go out after mice. But you're doing a terrific job of getting them!
