Ya, I had a mouse make a nest in the cylinder of my snow blower after
using it just once.  Apparently snow blowers do have air filters due to
the wet conditions and it's a straight path to the firing chamber.  The
mouse packed it with so much grain that it was basically hydro-locked and
broke stuff when I tried to start it.

There were cases were mice made their home in PCs that were in use.
After all, in the age of the 8088 und 80286, they were merely warm inside
and needed only the fan in the PSU.

Even mice will prefer a cozy warm place if they can get it.

Unless the battery already leaked and destroyed the PCB.
