    Mouse cleans up workbench - GIF

    Mouse cleans up workbench. Backstory here (true or otherwise) is that a guy kept noticing his tools being placed back into his toolbox overnight, so he set up a camera. Not sure what we have here. Mouse rebuilding its nest nightly?

    Mice are hoarders as well as nesters, I began restoration of a motorcycle after some years of storage and when removing the toolbox lid a ton of peanuts poured out.
    I think I have a couple of mice in my shop, they don't tidy up much but they sure know how to hide things.

    I had a workbench set up on the ground floor of a barn on a farm I stayed at for a couple of years up in Oregon. After noticing my tools disappearing (I thought I was misplacing them), one day I climbed the ladder to get into the loft and moved some items to find a packrat's nest, and all of my missing tools, including a 16 oz. finish hammer! How they navigated the ladder with the hammer in tow is a mystery to me.

    Boy, I sure could use him. He could name his own price in peanuts.
