The mice are running scared over at the Glengarry Pioneer Museum in Dunvegan. Guarding the buildings are two rescue cats, formerly from Scotland. They now live in a house right across the street from the grounds of the museum and visit everyday. The senior cat is Murphy, who is 17-years old.
And his brother Midge is 14. And although he only has one eye, he's still a helluva mouser.
We decided to honour their good work with a nice sign and to offer them a dish of water to slake their thirst.
Getting them to stop and have a drink is another thing. They're often in the fields doing their duty or tagging along after a visitor touring the museum.
