You might think me crazy.
But, I have a hunch that you don't.
I can tell by the comments left for me that you all
are animal lovers....
just like me.
Large animals....to small animals, I love them all.
Even the predators have their place in the world.
Without human intervention, the world works perfectly.
Each and every animal has its place.
Even the lowliest rodent.
Each day, when I go to the pond to feed the duck,
I am greeted by a family of mice inside the feed bin.
(Somehow they've managed to chew a hole in the plastic bin, right up under the lid.)
There they are, just staring up at me with their big bright eyes.....harmless.
Each day, I gently free them from the feed bin
(afraid that they might be stuck there and die of thirst).
I know that sounds crazy.
After all, we do have barn cats to keep the mouse population at bay.
But looking down at these adorable creatures....
well, they just melt my heart.
I'll continue to "save" them each day.
