Its not very often I ask for advise on here but I noticed something strange yesterday and would like to ask if anyone has experienced/heard of something simular and what it could mean, your opinions as to what you think it could be a sign of or if you think it was just a silly acting mouse.
I walked outside to get in my vehical and I saw something running in circles (counterclockwise) in the driveway. I approached it and it just kept running in a circle about two feet in diameter. I walked past it to get in my vehical, it stopped, looked at me and then went back to running in circles. I approached the mouse and started talking to him/her, it stopped, hunkered down like it was scared and looked right at me. At that point I got in my vehical and it started to run in circles again for a few moments, stopped, looked at me and walked under my truck. I started the engine and prayed that it was out of the way. I revved the engine a little in hopes to scare it out of the way. I backed up and did not see a little squished mouse so I left.
Anyone have some insight as to if this has some meaning behind it that it could be telling me or do you think it was just a silly acting mouse? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Additional information that could be of use: It was running counterclockwise in a 2-3ft diameter, the temperature was about 70°, wind was mild no more than 2-5 mph, sun was out/partly cloudy, neighborhood was quiet, mouse was about 2 ft from my vehicle door, driveway is gravel and I have a cat that I let out that hunts mice so it shouldn't be very care free in the open like that.
Thanks in advance for your input.
