Remember that a rodent can get into a space as small in size as its  
skull. Not its head; its skull. That means it can get into what seem  
to us to be impossibly small openings.  (from RATS, by Robert  
Sullivan)  Cars are not tightly constructed, and mice can easily climb  
what seem to us slick surfaces.  A car, for a mouse or two is just a  
great big old  jungle gym with nice human odors.   joan
