Guess what we found today in the backyard?

Nope, it's not a mousie! But it's just as small! Today, dad bean was working out in the backyard and he saw something black running back and forth near the fence. He went over to investigate, it was a mole!!

Moles like to dig holes, so dad bean grabbed a bucket and scooped it up and carried it over to the woods behind our property and released the little guy. Dad bean said, "we don't want this little bugger digging up holes all over the property." Dante kitty was watching us from the window. He was giving dad bean this face, "can I have it please, daddy?" No Dante, he's going back to the woods. Awww, shucks!

Woa! I don't think we've ever seen a mole--just the mole holes!

OMC! We have never seen a big mole before. Mom killed some baby moles by accident a while ago, and that made us sad. We had never seen baby moles before either

Good thing you were able to get the mole out of your yard. They can really tear a yard up. I'm sure Dante wanted to "help" you.

Oh, he's so small. For some reason we were thinking they are larger. Glad you caught it while you still have a lawn. But what about relatives?

Aw, too bad your human took the mole out to the woods. It would have made a nice snack!

I would have had to threatened my hubby. He wouldn't have wanted to release it. But, I make him.

He shakes his head when I make the cats leave the mice alone......
