Default Mouse in the House!

It'* been a while since I had one of these little critters in my basement. Surprising that even with two cats lurking down there, that this little bugger could survive.

I'll have to get a mouse trap now.

Can't stand the little scratching noises at night.

It'* in the walls. You can hear it running along the air ducts.
All the cats do is leap around meowing, all frustrated like.

I see it'* little turds in the furnace room.

Maybe before I try the trap, I'll just leave the door to the furnace room open to the cats. Let'* see if they catch me a surprise tonight.

Make sure you leave the traps along a wall since mice dont have good vision and like a wall to follow.

You know that when a cat brings you a dead smelly thing and drops it at your head when you sleep....its because it likes you

And when they bring the still-living mouse to your bed and drop it on your blanket covered body as you lie there, asleep and unsuspecting, so that the mouse thinks it has a chance to get away and darts under the covers with you, followed by a car frantic to re-catch its escaping prey.....
Well, perhaps that is a sign of love as well. All I know is it is NOT the best way to wake up.

Yes, very true, but it can be quite entertaining if the mouse was dropped on the wife'* side of the bed.

Don't use the sticky traps, please. You're not going to get a mouse unstuck from one after he'* thrashed around for a couple hours trying to get unstuck himself. You're just gonna end having to kill him yourself, or throwing out a mouse who has died from sheer terror. Use the neck-breakers, they really are the most humane way to get rid of a mouse.

The cats proved to be useless against this sneeky little mouse

Set two of the traditional $1.50 Victor snap traps loaded with tasty cheese and two other wall edge jaws of death traps that are sure to snap some necks.
