Cat Biological Survey
Star's pet tabby cat "pickles" is conducting a bio-diversity survey of the local rodent population. She previously applied to conduct and bird survey but was turned down.
Each night she collects samples in the field and brings them onto Star's bed. Usually by early moring.
Then We examine, identify them measure them, catalogue them and discard them.
The above we identified in the Petersen Guide as an Eastern Jumping mouse.
