One of our very important mancat jobs is to check that the straw in the barn is good quality.
We check that there is nothing there that shouldn't be there.
Sometimes we just sit quietly at the top of the ladder to make sure no introoders come in.
And on the way down, we smell the straw in case there are any mice hiding in there. It's important to check for mice because sometimes they chew the string that holds the straw bales together, then when dad picks them up they break. That usually makes him say bad words.
