    Cats and dogs have their pros and cons. Cats do keep the mice away though. When my 1st cat passed; it only took a year for the field mice to invade the yard; and later the house. When we got our last cat; it only took her a month to clear the house of field mice; another month to clear the yard of moles and field mice. It got to the point where she got bored and started bringing mice in from other yards to play with. She wasn't particularly good with flying creatures though.

    In any event; both cats and dogs hate it when you have to go to work or try to read anything.

    Rodents don't dare enter my house as I have 3 cats and they will hunt them down and kill them. I do not let them outdoors as evidenced by chewed up wires on Mom's car and mine.

    The once mint headliner is ruined, seats and carpet have been pissed/shit on hundreds of times by now. The entire interior has to be pulled and power washed at this point. I've removed at least a dozen dead mice from it so far.

    I have traps, d-con, those (imo useless) electronic rodent control devices that plug into the wall, these Grandpa Gus things that are supposed to keep mice away. (literally bought them off an add on FB) https://www.grandpagus.com/
    I've tried Irish soap, moth balls, all the usual tricks. At the end of the day it's been sitting for over a decade in a pole barn, mice get in and do mice things, it is what it is.

    Maybe in the future you can find a mint donor car for the interior. If anyone can find one, it's you!
