    Took my £160 Stormforce cover off a week ago as the car needed an MOT and not had the chance to put it back on. Chucked it in the shed and Mr Mouse has stuck a hole in it :(

    It's only 10mm across and i've literally put a plaster over it for now. :ymblushing:

    Mr M mouse may well have 'snipped' a piece of his favourite colour to get the right paint ;)

    Mice are a pest, this is a photo of inside my first TR7's glove box as i was about to take it out the garage

    for the start of the summer.

    what you are looking at is the remains of two hats after the mice decided to use them for a bed

    Ever since then I prepare the garage against them (if you know what i mean)

    My first intended vocation in life was to be a zookeeper. I never made it but have retained a love for gods creatures, ...................except wasps :D

    The cat brought a shrew home last night so i've drawn it a picture of a mouse with grey material round it's chops and let it loose to do it's natural duty. :ymhug:

    I'll try the duck tape, and look for a patch. Will also contact the supplier and see if they do anything...

    I'm kind to slugs as well. Leave them some beer. Apparently they like beer ;)

    Well, i will defend the dear old wasp - they catch and eat house flies and degub all your plants outside. Had a wasps nest in the garden which we recently left, they were fascinating to watch build their 'home', spent a few mins most days watching their activities. Cant stand them in the house though, always get them out somehow, alive.

    One drawback of top down motoring, a wasp decided to 'come in' whilst waiting at traffice lights, not a very nice feeling but he was soon on his way :-o
