In my garage! Two mornings in a row I've woken up to things knocked off of shelves in different places. Yesterday I figured it got knocked down by the kids and I just didn't notice. But to have it happen today too and with stuff on higher shelves, I'm assuming we have an uninvited guest! :?
I'm leaving the big garage door open slightly so 'it' can get out.
Hopefully it won't return!
The only bad thing is I left my car windows open last night, so I'm really hoping 'it' didn't find a comfy spot to sleep in my car! :shock:

Could it be a bird? We had a birdnest built in our garage earlier in the year - no egges thankfully!

We had a squirrel get in once and he panicked too much to get out on his own. So we set up a Have-A-Heart trap that night and by morning the little guy was inside enjoying a peanut butter sandwich. We took him to the nearby lake and released him. Everyone was happy. :D

Good luck finding your visitor and getting him to a safe place.

Shucks! You have a REALLY nice car, too. Don't want them to get too cozy! LOL!

say it ain't so, jules...actually. my first thought, maybe it's a neighborhood cat? does your car have the tell-tale paw prints on it? anyhow, hoping it's a cat, and not a rat or a possum.

Ok, we took the car out this afternoon-no surprises waiting for us! :lol:

My first thought was a possum too. We've got tons of them around here!
As long as my dog doesn't bring it inside again, I'm good. Why do these things happen when DH is out of town though? I caught a rat in a trap when he was gone too! :shock:

Betsy - I live in the far north burbs of Chicago. Probably far enough from you, you're safe. :wink:

I thought they were kind of cute, those babies all piled on. Pretty amazing actually. I felt like I was watching the nature channel. I actually witnessed them all crawl onto her.

Ok, sorry , didn't mean to hijack your thread!! :lol:
