Three Blind Mice

Okay... so there are more than three...

and they aren't really blind.

Tell me, how would you feel if YOUR husband called you outside to see these emerging from under your shed?

You can click to enlarge these pictures if you aren't too squeamish!

If the shed is far far away from the house-eeh-let them be, but if it's close to the house-either I'm moving or they are :)

Doberlady said...

They are so cute- But I say that because it's not my shed LOL.

Rebecca said...

Frankly I think they are all cute and sweet as long as they STAY in the shed.

Once they are in the house, I get quite a different view. ;-)

I was going to write what doberlady said. :)

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!

Tori said...

Oh no!!
What did you do? I would have screamed and ran into the house. :0)

They are cute but only when they're in a pet store.

Enlarge the photo? Are you kidding? You did a fine job of showing the little critters.

Yuck! I hate mice! We've had our share around here, too, but trust me...they are NOT cute nor are they living anymore.

lady jane said...

They're sooo cute! ;o)

Deborah said...

I'm with the ladies who think they are cute. I had white mice as pets once and they escaped. Definitely not so cute. I like them outside far from the house!:-)

Rebecca said...

That's when I call the cat! Vermin are NOT allowed in my house and my shed is too close to the house! Way too much disease associated with them!!

Rachel said...

Their cute, especially considering it looks to be a family - mom and dad and the babies?!? However, if/when they are in my house, I am sorry, but they are "zapped".
So what did you think about them?

Dianne said...

I'm with doberlady, they are cute but then it's your shed not mine! But then your talking to a lady who once feed a baby mouse from an eye dropper to keep it alive just to catch it later in a mouse trap. How crazy is that!!!

Alicia said...

I would have screamed!!! I just cant deal with those!!! :)

Tracy said...

I've been known to catch & drown a mouse found inside my house.

I'm afraid I'm with the "let 'em be as long as they're not inside" camp. We had an aviary that the mice lived in the bottom of. I could see them scampering about in the bottom from my kitchen window. They were fine until I had them inside!

I would say "eeeek...get the mousetraps"..now, please....pretty please.

Mmm... I suppose I'll have to say they are cute. :-)

... It's cockroaches and spiders and other many-legged pals that really get to me.

Cyndy said...

They look cute in your pictures! :)
I have a love/hate relationship with mice. We once lived in a mobile home that got infested with them one fall. It was gross. When they stay where they belong I don't have a problem with them at all and when they are kept as pets (that would be P-E-T-S not p-e-s-t) I think they are kinda neat.

Our neighbors shed has baby groundhogs...I have to keep a constant vigil with my new plantings!

Have a great Memorial day!♥

eeeeeee... As a country girl I have had to contend with many "creatures" but I can not stand mice, rats and bats.... Get a cat.... a big very hungry cat.

nope, nada

Karen said...

ewwwww.

Abounding Treasures said...

We had a couple of mice many years ago and we quickly got some of those traps which were very effective :o)

We have had many gerbils over the years, and some would say they were too close to being mice-like.

Believe it or not, my daughter even had a beloved pet rat that was VERY clean, washing itself no less than 20 times daily ~ cleaner than any animal I've ever seen before or since.

Kristy said...

Definitely not a good thing! I'd squeal and run. Then make sure they "were taken care of" somehow. Too many in the house in the past to think they are cute.

His Girl said...

*jumps on chair* eeeeek!

Jennifer said...

oh my. squeamish is an understatement! whew!

I'm just catching up on your blog... LOVE your sewing!

Tina said...

ARGHHHHH!!!!!!! (ok, it's only a few mice and at least they are not rats (shudders) but, ughhhh!!

Persuaded said...

actually they are *very* cute... however i don't think i'd find them quite so appealing if i had them in rl and emerging from underneath my shed... yeeps...

A Cat's dream! I think I would run screaming lol.
