It’s getting colder these days. Not as cold as the cold of 2010, but winter is clearly approaching. The mice have decided to charge the maison because 1) they did book ahead and 2) they need somewhere to warm their pattes while the have babies. Lucifer, the mouse trap, is locked and loaded.
We don’t have weekly garbage service, you see. We take our garbage to the local bins. I try to do this often. Sometimes, on days like today, where we really don’t go anywhere and a trip to the garbage bin is a trip all by itself, the bag will stay the night in our cellar. Tosca has worked out this deal with the mice – they start nibbling the bag and she’ll tuck in after. Clever girl our Tosca. It’s a win-win for her and our pests. Sadly, we’ll have to crush this little negotiation, though, it’s lovely to see Tosca find her inner puppy and get into garbage like back in her young puppy days.
