I still can't believe that weeks of nurturing my pepper and tomato seedlings was in vain. With 2 house cats, I lastly expected that my seedlings would disappear overnight due to a mouse with a voracious appetite for pepper and tomato seedlings. I'm especially surprised that the mouse left no evidence behind. However, my suspicions were validated when I placed an electronic mousetrap next to the seedling tray before bedtime. The next morning only 2 plants remained out of the last 6 standing & the culprit was dead in the trap. Since the plants were on a book shelf so high that I have to stand on a chair to water them & right next to my bed, I can't believe that pesky was able to sneak past me & the cats. I now realize that last year's disappearing seedlings that I had growing in the basement, and the year before on a window sill were not destroyed by my grand-daughter or the cats as assumed. Mystery solved. Apology to my grand-daughter & the cats who have finally been vindicated.
