Good deed for the day.

Yesterday I did my good deed for the day. I found a mouse outside that looked as if it had been attacked by a cat. After picking it up and checking it over, I placed it around the back of the shed and stood watching it for about 10 minutes until it had recovered enough to crawl away to safety under the shed. 

If we all try and do a little something every day the world will be a much better place.

Cue the sarcastic comments...

You could have killed the cat, so it won't hurt any more mice

Mousey will be so grateful it will bring all its friends and relations to move in with you when it gets a bit colder.

Preserving vermin isn't a good deed.

I wouldn't mind.

I'll remember that if I ever find you laying injured outside.

Feeding bread to pigeons: good deed or not?

Are you intending to cook & eat the pigeon ?

No. To avoid psittacosis.

Hardly Nobel Peace Prize winning stuff but I'm sure karma will reward you in some small way. Maybe you'll wait 5 seconds less at the next pedestrian crossing.

I once did some rat-sitting for my mate's pet rat when he was on holiday.  Little bastard chewed through my brother's shirt in the ironing pile.  He was quite cute though.

I made the mistake of feeding squirrels one winter. They think you're their friend and invade your house.

I would just shoot the pigeons here given the chance.

Mice aren't a problem. It's rats that spread disease. Well, I still think that what I did was right.
