An Unwelcome Surprise in My Knitting Bag

The very first thing I ever knitted (and consequently felted) is this Oregon Tote:

I use this bag to haul around my current knitting project, patterns, yarn, needles, etc. Everything seems to fit so perfectly in it. On Fridays I typically go to The Copper Llama to either spin or knit. I'm usually there for a few hours so I bring along a snack... which I also keep in my knitting bag. Well, a granola bar has been in the bottom of my bag for a few weeks now. When I pulled my knitting out of my bag last night, little sticky pieces of granola were on my current project. What the..?! I looked into the bottom of my bag is this is what I saw:

A little critter had chewed a hole in the granola bar and made quite a mess! I'm guessing it was a mouse... Now I'm trying to figure out when it happened. I've been working on my knitting every night and last night was the first that I saw the granola bits on my yarn. Do we have mice in the house... in summer? That doesn't seem likely. What makes the most sense is that I took this knitting bag on our trip to the Apostle Islands last week and the car sat parked on the edge of the woods for 4 days while we were out kayaking. Did a mouse get into the car? I guess we'll never know. In the meantime, we'll be loading up the mouse traps at home... just in case!
