I have an entire family for Striped Field Mice living in the undergrowth below my bird feeding station. I put out this avocado which was not edible, and looks who the first creature was to find it. He was outwitted though, as the resident Mongoose stole it away from him.
These little field nice are so tame that they run under my feet when I am replenishing the food in the bird feeding station.
I love having the Mongoose around as it means that he keeps the snakes at large.
