Fall at the Farm



Everyone measures seasons differently - some see the turning of the leaves others feel the nip in the air but for me it is the morning routine of emptying the mouse traps. It is not a task that gives me much room to pause but you sure can tell that things are changing when I get all three traps full each morning. You really have to keep on top of this issue or soon they will send out the word that your house is a nice place to spent the winter.


One amazing thing about a log home is most animals great or small can use the logs like a step ladder to reach heights that normally they could not reach in other homes. Mice also love to use the logs as a race track since the walls do not exactly meet the logs they can travel from room to room in such a cleaver way...


While you may be raking leaves or pulling out those fall sweaters I will be emptying traps... Oh, the changing of the season's here at the Funny Farm.

Yep, everyone's looking for a warm place to spend the winter! :)

Luckily, our barn cats take care of the mice. And the indoor cats take care of any that do make it inside.

Log house freeway indeed. I have been emptying my traps as well. After last years mouse invasion I am forever on the mouse hunt. I'd like to know, just when WILL they build a better mouse trap??? No indoor cats for me, they would be doggie dinner.
