I need some ideas on the proper way to store my puppets when not in use.
I have been storing a Verna Finley puppet in the garage in a large white box. (I introduce her as my Mother-in-Law, whom I promised I would bring out first class if she came. The box will say, "FIRST CLASS POSTAGE".)
Anyway, she has on old leather granny boots and I noticed when I brought her out today that there were SEVERAL places where the leather had been gnawed. OUCH! I checked the puppet over but didn't see anything. I keep her in a plastic bag but her feet were sticking out. Apparently a mouse got to her.
I was once at a church where they showed me a puppet who had a 1 inch hole eaten through the center of his forehead by a mouse. I told them he could play the part of Goliath.
So plastic bags are a great idea to keep the mice away. Perhaps I should get the Axtell Alley Cat and leave it in the open!
