If you allow the mouse to go about its business, the cat will keep catching it until it does so definitively. If you release the mouse into the garden, the cat will find it there too - and in any case, the mouse will probably find its way back into the house.

The advice is to get into the car and take the mouse at least one mile away before releasing it in woods or similar.

Alternatively, I could start posting its photo on the User Pets Pic thread.


My country girl advice is just to let the cat have its way with it. It's vermin, for fuck's sake!

If you insist on trapping, however, fruit and nut chocolate does an admirable job as bait. The raisins are tough enough for the mouse to definitely trigger the mechanism when it's .nibbling on it.

washing-up rack gecko by hassan el kebir, on Flickr[/url]

Oh look, another bleedin' gecko.

Judging by the grin on its face, I rather think it may have been hanging around on the ceiling above my head for a bit too long

Also the glazed sheen of its eyes is a bit of a give away. Lucky Hassan - I want a gecko in my kitchen.

The zoom on our camera is not good enough to get shots of the birds in the garden from our bedroom.
As proof, I offer


Mrs Woodpecker upside down on the feeder


8 sparrows on shed roof --- if you can see 'em well enough to count, well done!


Funny how all the tweets disappear when the Fierce Jungle Predator shows up

Over recent days it has been utterly delightful to see the parent birds giving the juniors their training. Mum or dad gets on feeder, while younglings wobbble on the washing line, squeaking, and doing the trembly-wing thing -"feeeeed me!". Eventually Junior gets the idea and hops on to peanuts and/or fatball to get its own nosh. Big sigh of relief from parent.

That should be on the 'Aww' thread too!
My photo definitely shouldn't. I found it on our pyracanthus. Amazing what you find when you're trimming your bush. I haven't looked up what it is yet as it looks really exciting but is bound to be something really common and I don't want to be disappointed just yet.

Okay, so it's a vapourer moth. Sadly considered common in the UK. Ah well, the disappointment has been counter-balanced by its rather wonderful alternative name: the Rusty Tussock moth.

So bem found a Rusty Tussock while trimming her bush.
Need anything more be said?

There are so many dodgy words that rhyme with 'rusty, that all sorts of wordplay is springing to mind but highly unsuitable for a grown up thread.

I went back to my old workplace this morning to take some photos, one of which I'll use to paint a picture from at a craft fair they're having this weekend.
This is what I saw:

Ooh lovely pics! Post them on the sticky thread, why don't you, Nin? You'll have to upload them to the QI Flickr group first - see the thread for details.
