Choco wanted out on the balcony to lap fresh rainwater off of leaves. When I went back a few minutes later to check on her, I found her mesmerized by a snail.
I heard a light thud on the roof, or perhaps a window, and looked out to see a rodent on the walk in front of our door.
Dropped by a raptor?
I put on a pair of disposable medical gloves (rodents can carry parasites) and put it in a box. I know a biologist who uses desiccated beasties for teaching, so it’s double bagged and in the freezer.
