I was working on number three, neglecting my manners by barging in without knocking, when I realized I had disturbed a fat Cinderella mouse who had been fast asleep dreaming of cheese. He skipped onto my hand, gave me a impolite look, then dove into the underbrush, poor thing. He had made a lovely nest for himself so after a quick peek, I secured the house and hopefully he'll bravely return for an afternoon nap.
The rest of my work went smoothly, knocking on every house before forcing my way inside, and I got to visit with my friend the box turtle and some lizards, crows, chickadees, catbirds and mockingbirds.
Lesson Learned: Manners count, no matter who you're encountering!
