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.

Eastern Bog lemming
Short tailed shrew

pygmy shrew
chipmunk -catch and release(inside the house)

Stay tuned for updates
