With the week I have had I was just preparing for my next blog and came across these 2 funny stories I wanted to share. Unfortunately, they ARE true stories.

Enjoy!

Mighty Mice or Something Else?

We lived our early years in an old farm house that was slowly falling apart. Mind you, because I was so in love with my husband I would have lived in a box in the back yard. One of the challenges of living in an old farmhouse is mice. Well I, like any normal person, laid out some D Con. After all, that'll get em. A few weeks went by and low and behold while putting away dish towels I lifted up one towel to place another one under it and I found a present. There under the towel was a giant blue mouse terd. (Not really sure mice terds are giant but I will continue to believe the terd belonged to a constipated mouse and not something of a bigger variety.) So, the inquisitive soul I was decided to check the d con box to see if anything had been ingested. Under the sink lie the box crumpled up in shreds. Not only had they eaten the entire contents they decided to poke fun at my exterminating attempts and build a nest right there in that very spot. Mighty Mice. Sometimes you gotta believe it's "just a mouse" in order to cohabitate.

Just cuz it looks like a dog, eats like a dog doesn't mean it is a dog....

I heard a story once and it's a true one. I had a friend tell me a story about her family (I won't be any more descript and you will soon understand why). Her "sister" and her family took a trip to Texas in their camper. They met a friendly little dog there. He showed up at every meal looking for food which they obliged him. They thought he was so friendly they would take him home. They returned home in their camper with their little dog along. Well, her sister had a cat. The cat didn't like her new friend. She hid and avoided him at all cost. One day the cat disappeared. About 3 days later the lovely little dog got sick so they took him to the vet. The vet did an xray on the dog and low and behold the little dog had eaten the cat and the way they knew this was because he had ingested the cats collar as well. Furthermore, the vet nicely informed them that they had not brought home a dog but rather a large rat. The moral of this story: Just because it looks like a dog doesn't mean it's a dog.

    • OMG!  I have never heard that in my life, a dog eating a cat, unbelievable.  I have heard weird stories about mice though.

      You want to laugh, we have what I call “Military Squirrels” in our yard.  They have been so used to eating peanuts and other types of nuts that we give to them and the birds, that they are now huge and fluffy, not destructive at all, but really could kick some behind..lol.  Their mama is the cutest, tiniest squirrel that has been taking peanuts from our hand for years and she has bred some big, healthy kids.estatic

    • Funny! We have a wide array of wildlife here as well. I used to feed the birds but I found they scattered so many weeds from the seed that we fed them ie. thistle that I had to stop. It was such a mess.
      Cute though!
