As I kinda expected, I had not caught all of the marauding vermin when I captured Bitey #1 a few days ago.


Nothing had hit the trap for a few days and I was beginning to wonder, but my mother reported that she was still hearing "something" up in the attic from time to time so I'd left it in place. I missed the trap going off this time, but when I got up this morning I was treated to the miscreant I'm dubbing "Bitey #2".

After wiring the cage shut to avoid accidents, I took a good look at him. This one is a bit darker than the last one and a bit smaller. He was much more afraid of me and nearly beat himself to death (or so it seemed) racing back and forth as I moved the cage out to the garage.

I decided I'd best do some research on these critters and quickly discovered that they are pack rats. Relatively intelligent and having more in common with squirrels than mice, they're curious creatures that are usually pretty unafraid of people. They're quite destructive once they find a spot they like, tearing up wiring (yikes!) if they take a fancy to it.

So after I got things otherwise ready (I had chores planned in town) I took him down to the meadow where I released Bitey #1 and set him free. This took a bit of doing it turned out; whereas Bitey #1 just dashed out once he saw the cage was open Bitey #2 was having none of it. I had to eventually lift the cage and shake it relatively hard to get him to drop out, at which point he dashed off to the field. Hopefully he'll join Bitey #1 in their new home.
