Twas the night before Christmas by Hagge Twas the night before Christmas by Hagge
Yes, it's early, but it's not the only card I have to make.
A suggested concept that may or may not be used for someone else's christmas card. Even if she uses it, I can keep it here. :)

Oh, so cute. I love mousey stuff. (Actually, I like mice period. . .except the ones in my ceiling!)

Great job. :)

Thanks, yeah, I can deal with cute mousies via art, but like you...not when they share the residence. :D

Oh I can share residence. . .if they're domestic mice in cages. I love playing with them. But yeah, the wild ones in the house walls. . .um. . not so much. Not to mention the stench when they die. Argh. But they can be wild in art and no one minds them. They aren't doing damage. :D

Used to raise gerbils for the pet store. I think I preferred them to pet mice, but that was just me. :D
Oh, I know what you mean...they die in the most awkward sites, sometimes. :( :)

I used to have gerbils too. They are fun. Hamsters too. I've got a degu now, and chinchilla. But I still like the mice. They're *smart* creatures, and I love how their tails wrap around your fingers.

But yeah, the wild mice. . .ergh. And yes, even the cat is having a horrible time doing his job. He can hear them, he can smell them, but they're staying between the walls, or in the ceiling where he can't get them. And the one room they're coming into (the storage room downstairs) we have the poison put out so we can't let him in there. Its really quite aggravating for all. . .except maybe the mice. lol (And yes, he has managed to catch a couple that have come out where he could get them. But 3 to the dozens around isn't quite enough to make a dent)

But. . .in art they can just be cute, and do no damage and not die in awkward places. :) Indeed, you don't WANT those ones dying at all.

Never got used to hamsters, but they're cute.
Unfortunately, we don't have a cat...poison, stickies and clap traps here. :( Yeah, they're smart. They learned how to climb the wire shelves in the pantry, and got into a bunch of dry foods...little stinkers.
Yeah, now if only they'd stay THERE, instead. :D

Aww no kitty? Thats terrible. :( Although I'm sure the mice appreciate it.

We've actually taken to storing *ALL* our food in glass or metal to make sure its mouse-proofed. The store room - well we learned the hard way after they got into and demolished a few bags of nuts (which are quite expensive!). Then we started going through and moving *EVERYTHING* except dry pasta. . .which they don't seem to care for. . .into glass jars, or tins. Lables can be cut off and taped onto the new containers, but even boxes aren't safe.

On the good side, I guess that makes everything BUG proof too. (ew?! lol I have found a few boxes of lasanga noodles in our pantry, complete with bug-skins. So...yeah, tins and glass are good things)

Its amazing how hard they are to deter, though. Even with no temptations inside. Here, we think they get in under our front porch. . .and feast on the bird seed we put outside in that area. -sigh- Stinkers indeed!

Yes, I like cats...at this point in time, the whippet wouldn't appreciate it, but oh well.

They're annoying, wild mice. I've never understood how people in older times thought them cute enough to make stories out of them. Do they chew through plastic on you? I've got our corn meal in plastic containers, and they seem to leave it alone...maybe because the lid's air tight. Like you, sugars and flour in tins. Tea way up in the shelf where they can't reach it.

Oh ew! I've found bugs in the flour before. (hence the air tight tins) Makes you wonder how our predecessors survived without tins and plastics before then. :)
