Mouse builds nest egg in ATM with $20 bills
LA GRANDE, Ore. A mouse found inside an automatic teller machine along with a nest it had built with chewed-up $20 bills gave an Oregon gas station employee the surprise of her life. The mouse, discovered Thursday, had thoroughly torn up two bills and damaged another 14 to line his nest. Employee Millie Taylor said she screamed and slammed the machine's door shut.

The bank replaced all the money that wasn't extensively damaged, and the ATM has continued to work just fine. The mouse also got a reprieve: He was evicted from his nest but set free outside the station.

Other workers at the Gem Stop Chevron in La Grande in eastern Oregon say they're mystified about how the mouse got inside the machine.

2. They evicted the mouse?
This is the most blatant form of mouseism I have seen in a long time. The bastards!

11. Kliban was a hero of mine, brilliant man
we filled our hourse with his junk in the 70's and 80's (along with kitteh). I still have all of his cartoon books.


And I still have a Momcat T-shirt I occasionally wear.

:hug: :hi:

12. Kliban was wonderful, made me laugh out loud and people look at me funny when I showed them
what i was laughing at because they couldn't understand it. I sing "nibble on their tiny feet" to my mouse catching cats

5. I once found a litter of kittens in the back of an old arcade video game I had.
The thing was broken so I had it stored in the garage.

Homes were found for all the living kittens. No idea where the mother was.
