Mouse Cleans Up Man's Garage

Meet the Marie Kondo of Mice — This Little Guy Spends His Nights Tidying Up the Garage

When I lived in a ground-floor apartment in New York City, I spent a considerable amount of time chasing and trying to capture mice. They'd hide in my oven, underneath the electric stove burners, and inside microscopic holes in baseboards. Never did I stop to think that these mice might've been swinging by my apartment to help me clean up the place.

Sound preposterous? It's not. In a now-viral Twitter thread that's been covered by a number of news outlets, England-based Stephen McKears, a retired technician, shares home footage of a strange mouse tidying up his tool shed. After noticing that his garage was getting mysteriously organized each night — large screws and bolts were getting put away — he set up a hidden camera to catch whatever uninvited figure (he thought it was a ghost) was sneaking into his shed each night to clean up his tools. What he found was a complete surprise. Not only was a mouse doing the labor, but the rodent was putting in serious sweat equity — McKears said he cleaned up for hours.

This little mouse deserves a day off, or cheese, if you ask us.
