What's Behind Door No. 2?

Not long ago, I asked what was behind Door No. 1.

Today, I ask, "What's behind Door No. 2?"

It's in the same building, same location...but the room behind this door was used for an entirely different purpose than that of the first door.
(Note: A careful observation of this door gives the hint.)

Hmmm, well I see a mouse hole but still nothing comes to mind...I'm horrible at these guessing games,lol.

Marie Reed said...

That sur does looks like a tail sticking out of that mousehole. Please tell me that's just a stick. Eeeeeekkk!

Jim said...

I think its a cat hole. You know cats stay ready outside to catch the mouse and he leaves.

Hope said...

I wonder about that little hole down at the bottom. Looks like a pet door of sorts.

Virginia said...

I was going to say rat hole and now Marie has me all freaked out about the possible "tail" Eeeekkkkkk!

Rambling Round said...

Hey ya'll. I didn't even notice that "tail," er, stick!

You're on the right track about the hole in the door. Why in the world is it there?

PJ said...

It look like a mouse hole but maybe it's for drainage of some kind. Was it an ice storage area and the melted water ran out the little "Mouse house" door?

Lessie said...

I don't know what's behind it -- but I LOVE the little hole! So cute.

Halcyon said...

It looks like a place where cats would like to go. I am guessing the pantry or larder? The cats were probably allowed in to chase the mice.

Possum hole I'm guessing. Pappy

Tanya said...

Nope, still nothing,lol.

Is there a litter box behind that door? ;-)

Ms. Hays said...

I agree w/ Jim - a cat! If not, then I'm going to guess an over sized mouse or RAT!

marley said...

Well, its either a cat or a large mouse!

Ivy Cottage Creations said...

Is that big enough for a chicken to go thru? It wasn't a place for the chickens to go in and lay eggs was it?

Rambling Round said...

Okay, y'all. Some of you got it right about the hole in the door. It IS meant for a cat or cats, and Halcyon got the reason right...to catch mice!

It's not a larder but is a type of pantry. What did they store in that pantry that mice would want?

J. Andrew Lockhart said...

storage? I don't know.

Rambling Round said...

Hi Andrew and all. Yes, this place was used for storage, and the room behind this particular door with the cat entry stored grain. This was all back when most cats were mousers instead of pets!

Cheese!
Wait, did they store cheese?
