Night-time Intruder

After the centipede comes someone else. We found a grape on the hob this morning, partly chewed. The fruit bowl is on the counter six feet from the hob. Somehow, the grape detached itself from the bunch, left the bowl and moved six feet to the right. Looking at the back of the counter, behind the bread-maker and some semi-permanent items on the counter I find tiny dark dropping-like specs, a couple of milimetres long and perhaps half a milimetre wide.

I think we may have a Mus musculus or possibly a Peromyscus leucopus.

  1. Let's hope he is an intruder and not a resident, whichever type he is. Living in New York appears not to be the doddle that was expected.
