life on the Oregon frontier just went environmental

Midnight the cat brought this guy home the other day. I thought at first it was a dead tree squirrel because of the hairy tail. But I looked again and there was that distinctive face. My neighbor, who is a champion pack rat identifier, said, yep, it was a pack rack, small though. They usually come in pairs and really do like to steal shiny objects for their nest. Haven't seen the other one of the pair yet. But the cats are on the case.
