What a Morning - Scraps & Stitches
What a Morning
About 8.30 went into my bird shed to get them fed and watered found a mouse stuck in the wire between one flight and the next the wire is 3/4 inch round... Lord knows how he got his head shoulders and rib cadge through, but when it came to getting his hips through there was no way. But now he couldn't go back as the wire was under his ribs. Poor little bugger was really stuck. I have no idea how long he has been there. I am running all over looking for wire snips so I could cut him loose. I found some in hubby's ham shack couldn't even see the piece I needed to snip. Little so and so bit me while trying to see where I needed to cut, lucky he didn't break the skin. So I'm snipping away till finally I had to lift his butt way up so I could see the wire then hoping I didn't nip him finally after a good 20 minutes got him free.
Good job I'm not afraid of mice...

Why do they always try to bite when you want to help? Silly little blighter. I hope he's learned his lesson and won't be hanging around again tomorrow morning... *hg*

The next morning he was still in the shed looking a little sorry for himself. I was able to pick him up and put him back outside.

Birds are the same; I often get them coming into the greenhouse and almost the only way to get them out again is to catch them, and they always peck (or try to).

I usually keep some good leather gloves around for handling any thing like this but I couldn't use the wire clipper with them on so that was why he got to me. No harm dome he didn't break the skin.
