Welsh Man Discovers Unusually Diligent Rodent Through Hidden Camera Footage

A retired Welsh man made an astonishing discovery when he reviewed footage from a camera he had set up in his garden shed – a mouse that would sneak in every night and meticulously tidy up.

77-year-old Stephen Mckears initially set up the night vision camera in his shed in Severn Beach, South Wales to find out why materials kept getting moved around and disappearing. However, what he discovered shocked him and has now captivated the imagination of people around the world.

Amy The Tidy Mouse Becomes An Overnight Celebrity

The footage reveals a mouse, dubbed ‘Amy’ by Mckears, carefully moving nuts, screws, piping and other objects from Mckears’ cluttered shed to designated areas, clearing pathways and categorizing items. She can be seen tidying for hours, only stopping occasionally for food.

The remarkable behavior has earned the mouse celebrity status, with the video going viral online and Amy attracting fans globally:

Said Mckears: “I had to laugh, and now Amy has become quite a celebrity!”. Locals have been visiting his shed to try catch a glimpse of the elusive legend.

Theories Abound As To What’s Behind Amy’s Behavior

Many are mesmerized as to what might explain Amy’s nocturnal tidying sprees in the shed every night.

Scientists have conjectured that the behavior relates to the mouse gathering and sorting materials for building a nest. Said leading rodent expert Dr. Julian Carrol: “This OCD like tidying pattern is quite unusual though, and may suggest deeper planning and logic by the mouse.”

Others believe the old shed, with its chaotic yet intricate clusters of materials reminiscent of a bygone era, has inspired what artists are calling ‘found art’ by the mouse.

Youth in the town have set up a Facebook Fan club for “Amy the Artist”, with over 5,000 members. Fan Jemima Harris said: “We totally stan Amy and her quirky creative side!”.

What’s Next For Amy?

For now, Amy continues her surreptitious tidying antics in Mckears’ shed under the cover of darkness. But with the recent media attention, speculation is rife as to what opportunities may open up for the tidy mouse.

There is already chatter Amy may feature in TV shows, children’s books or even an animated movie. How the mouse will respond to these potential riches and fame remains to be seen.

Said local shopkeeper Mr Evans: “It’s been whirlwind few days for our small village. But I hope Stephen looks after Amy and shields her from some of the attention – she at heart seems a very private mouse who just wants to tidy in peace!”.

Whatever path Amy takes, her legend now seems firmly etched as the most improbable celebrity to emerge from the Welsh countryside in living memory.

Man Now Letting The Mouse Get On With Tidying Shed

Since the media frenzy, Stephen Mckears has taken a laid back attitude and avoided interfering with Amy’s shed schedules.

He said: “It really doesn’t bother me anymore and she’s become part of the family. The key is I now let her get on with organising – I avoid moving things back once she has sorted them to her liking, as that clearly frustrates her efforts!”

This harmonious dynamic appears to be working well. Amy continues to visit every night, with local children even leaving out treats as a ‘thank you’ for the entertainment she’s providing the previously sleepy town.
