    Mailbox Mice

    With the coyote urine suggestion - would a container of used cat litter (replaced every week or so to keep it "optimal"), clear in the back of the mailbox do the same thing? Mothballs always have worked for me, but you said you'd already tried them.

    Mailbox Mice

    I'm just a couple mountains/counties over from Jan A. Add in big horn sheep to the critters she was talking about. They wander around town here during rut (the rest of the time they stay up on the hillsides away from people) and aren't very pleasant during that time (think the nature...

    Mailbox Mice

    Once upon a time I raised hamsters commercially. The cute little furry beasties were some of the worst for attacking eachother. They are a female dominant society and we had to have dividers they couldn't see through between cages or they'd wear themselves out trying to attack eachother...

    Mailbox Mice

    Those babies were already dying. It was humane to end their situation quickly, and completely logical to make use of their demise to help another in the food chain. I only have a tough time with this philosophy when I encounter a bear or big cat because then I'm the one on the menu. Then...

    I had the very same email, Yvonne, also from an addy I knew, but the phrasing was slightly off (she'd NEVER have said something using that syntax and vocab). So, I reported it, but all that seems to do is make them quit bothering me and move on to the next pigeon.

    I think my male tortoise is dying

    Don't use a plant saucer that has been used for plants because the residue from fertilizers can be bad for the Tortoise.

    Need to upgrade indoor redfoot tortoise enclosure

    My redfoot has a clear sided enclosure and watches us. She's really very expressive. Because its basically a plastic it will get scratched and become opaque in a couple years, but (a) it will need to be enlarged every once in a while anyhow, and (b) she seems to like being aware of what's...
