No, not in the country. I'm theoretically in the middle of the city (only 2 blocks from the library!) but...all of the homes here are on large-ish lots (mine is 1/3 acre), and there's an open space preserve less than half a mile away.
Wildlife seems very abundant in Colorado, even in the city, compared to what I saw in California. There are families of bunnies that live in the Target parking lot, for example. So having mice is not really a surprise.
The scientist is not a person who gives the right answers, he's one who asks the right questions.
Research is what I'm doing when I don't know what I'm doing.
