Cody is 6 years old. I live in an older house in the country and I get the occasional visitor of a field mouse, much to the delight of Cody my cat. She is very good at discouraging them from coming again. One morning, I found her up on a vantage point on top of the kitchen cabinets, able to view the whole of the kitchen and dining room. How she got up there, I will never know.
