A few years ago when I first moved up here the cats were absolutely losing their shit in the basement one day. Running all over the place, tearing into shit, yowling. I went down to figure out what it was and discovered a vole (little field mouse sort of thing) running around. I trapped it and let it go.
Well I just discovered another one. This one I picked up by the tail and carried it, like a lollipop, upstairs to the trash. Guess I wasn't around when the cats got it :\
