bodycount

Since last post:

  • Dead shrews removed from pillow at midnight when returning home from work exhaused - 1
  • Mouse heads discovered in smear of blood on spare room carpet - 1
  • Life shrews captured in pint glasses and returned to wild - 2
  • Live shrews behind kitchen cabinets - 1
It's becoming tedious now. And we have started shutting the bedroom door.

Broadband is back. Yay! I am still slightly enveloped in boxes though ...

  1. Uh-oh. Shrews on pillows -- not a good thing. I wonder if there is something you could sprinkle around the house, like boric acid or cayenne pepper, that would discourage the little varmints?

  2. I meant around the outside of the house, of course.

  7. That's good news about broadband! Dial-up is soooo slooooow.

    Get used to the shrews, they will become a feature of your life. On the plus side, you won't have mice coming in to spend the winter with you. And even better, you have inspired a post. OK, I suppose that is no consolation LOL

  12. The cats can see you are busy so are helping out by bringing a takeaway home!

  13. It would seem from this that your cats view shrews as a lousy lunch, but a nice wind-up-toy and handy gift for mum?
    I know nothing so went googling and found the BBC ->

    Still it seems that of you release them beyond their own territory, you do them no favours?

    Sympathy.
