Default Lynne and the Mouse

We were supposed to be doing an update on fixing Lynne up, but a combination of a very mediocre result, and an unexpected event means that the update will wait:

This evening we were enjoying the last of the weekend in the garden, we noticed that the cat was interested in something on the lawn. Taking a closer look he had found not just one but two mice! One was already dead, but after shooing the cat away, I noticed that the other was alive. I managed to pick it up into a bowl to see if it was injured. Apart from being a bit damp where he had been carried in cat's mouth, he was fine.

He was very tame, probably the reason why he was caught. He sat contented on my hand while I checked him over, and while I went off to find something to make as a temporary home, Lynne got to hold him too:



He wasn't partucularly interested in the biscuit, but seemed safe in Lynne's lap. Cat doesn't tend to bother with her that much, so was safe enough.







He's now living in a box filled with woodshavings in a part of the garden where he won't be disturbed.

Nice mouse.

I am sure if it was out in my garden last week Ginger would not be sitting there with it on her knees, I think she would be jumping around all over the place.

Very brave of Lynne to take care of the mouse, others would be stood on the bench screaming the neighbourhood down. Great pics and I hope the mouse gets over his ordeal but high five your cat, he's good at his job.

very cute. Lovely caring expression captured on Lynne's face.

Pretty sure that its a vole rather than a mouse. Whatever, thats immaterial. Its very sweet and looks cosy nestled there.

Yes Indeed Lynne and Muninn, we left you a humorous and potential solution if the mouse becomes problematic...

but then again if it is a Mickey Mouse



I do not recommend the addition pussy cat solution.

You know, I was thinking that, but for some reason I was convinced voles preferred water areas. I'll see if I can upload a better close up photo from my phone later.

I'll let Lynne know about your solution, she will no doubt reply when she wakes up (she's a lady of leisure, some of us have to work...). Not sure if there's enough space for a cat down her top

Here's a couple of close ups for a better shot at identifying her furry friend:





Sorry it's turning into a bit of a "Identifying British Mammals" thread!

Hehe!

Generally speaking, a mouse has a wider back end than the front portion.

Voles are more straight bodied.

We WILL identify her.

Or is it a him?

No pictures needed to establish sex... We will trust you on THAT call.

Lol, looks like he's adopted you.

mice have more bubous eye's.

nose isn't long enough and eye's are too large to be a shrew

scowered the images and I keep coming back to it being either a field vole or a bank vole.

I'm coming down on the side of it being the slightly rarer bank vole due to the length of its tail. Even though the colouring would suggest that its a field vole.
