Mice






Category: BIRDS AND BEASTS.

Source: Welsh Folk-lore

A mouse nibbling clothes was a sign of disaster, if not death, to the
owner. It was thought that the evil one occasionally took the form of a
mouse. Years ago, when Craig Wen Farm, Llawr-y-glyn, near Llanidloes,
Montgomeryshire was haunted--the rumour of which event I well
remember--the servant girl told her mistress, the tenant of the farm,
that one day she was going through the corn field, and that a mouse ran
before her, and she ran after it to catch it, but that when she was
opposite the barn, the mouse stopped and laughed at her, and ran into a
hole. The mouse, therefore, was the evil spirit, and the cause of all
the mischief that followed.
