My cats keep bringing in tiny little brown mice. To be honest I can't tell if it's the same poor mouse or a different mouse each time. The cats don't kill or eat them they sit and play with them. Cruel little buggers !
I'm writing this because there is one under the bookcase in the front room right now. It might be the same one that was brought in (then released outside again) last night !
Anyway, what I want to know is, to try and stop my cat's finding them again as soon as I put them back outside in my garden where else can I put them ? I don't suppose it's like re releasing bats or anything like that ( I know you're not really supposed to do that or take them somewhere else due to protection/preservation).
Do I put the mice in the bushes on the end of my road ?
Take them up the fields/woods ?
Back out in my back garden in the logs/bushes/ground cover plants ?
Last week I let one go in my garage so it could get it's breath back and wander off when it felt like it ! I know last year there was a least one mouse living in there because it nibbled its way inside a teddy bear that was in there and helped it's self to some fat balls.
Thanks in advance.
PS the cat's managed to het a Pipstrel bat in through the cat flap once and it was swooping around the front room when I got in and my 15 year old son was hiding in his room !!
