Mr Bill, our Wizard in residence quietly asked me if I had a container to catch the mouse.
WHAT??Sitting daintily next to the cookie plate was a field mouse nicely eating a chocolate chip biscotti as tho she was an invited guest! Rather than being horrified, my guests commented on her confidence and manners! ( After all, she only ate HER cookie & we WERE in a barn)
She was quickly captured and taken outside . Our gentle wizard made sure she was away from the barn and sheltered from the rain while she finished her treat. A lovely time was had by ALL!
