Lookie, Lookie

Lookie what I found!!! The Cunning Voles of Doom are no match for me!!

Is it weird that they all look different to me? The first one was small and gray. The second was larger, and gray. This one? He is small and has a TON of brown in his fur.

I know I've said it before, but MAN I hope he's the last... any thoughts on painting him without hurting him or me?

No idea on painting the voles. But whoever suggested the tagging them is right: you need to know if you're catching different ones or the same ones over and over.

Good luck, though.

Food coloring. It won't last forever, but shouldn't harm the voles either. And the gel lasts LOTS longer than the regular kind you get at the grocery store.
But, whatever you do, good luck.

Tagging them somehow sounds like a good plan!

Hopefully there different ones. Take the food coloring on a small paintbrush and through the cageholes paint on the back of it. Hope he doesn't squirm too much to accomplish this.

You could try a hair coloring too.. put it on a mascara brush or something and poke it through the holes so you don't have to handle the little critter.

Hope you get the voles (sorry, I *snicker* each time I say that word) to leave your garden alone.

I'll drive down with the goat tatoo device. Permanent marks, no permanent harm.

Can they be tamed? I know shrews can't, but mice are easy. How big are these guys?
