It seems as though having gaping holes in your home during a remodel may invite unwanted guests.
Stuntman and I were in the kitchen chatting and out of the corner of my eye, I saw something looking at me from an exposed rafter. It saw me and scurried back further into the attic.
Stuntman didn't see it, and thought that maybe my eyes were playing tricks on me.

I was upstairs typing and heard the airsoft rifle on full-auto in the attic. No luck, because the battery is low. It's currently on the charger.
We just heard one of the two large traps go off. Empty.
I think we may borrow one of the neighbor's cats. Maybe the one that caught the rabbit in our backyard yesterday.

NOT good. I've had various varmints infiltrate my house in past lives, such as squirrels, raccoons, and the like. Squirrels can do a LOT of damage, believe me! Happy and successful hunting, Susan.

good luck. We had a squirrel in our attic last winter and it took forever to get that bastard out. Really I thought we'd get up to the attic and find a whole condo set up up there he was hanging around so long. A nice little home sweet home stitching in the corner....
