Back a few months ago, I may have mentioned we figured out there was a mouse in our house. He had eaten a hose from the dishwasher and caused havoc! The Man and I can live without a lot of things, but the lack of a dishwasher is stress increaser. We both HATE dishes.
To eliminate the mouse, the Man had bought some traditional traps. Smart mouse was able to get the food off it without setting them off.
Time passed and the signs of the mouse disappeared so we stopped trying. Then Saturday morning we spied mouse poop on the counter. We figure he is upstairs since we removed his downstairs food source (Nin's food). Time for round 2.
Man bought an expensive humane trap and set it. Saturday night, it was clear the mouse had visited, but he didn't set it off. Last night, well the Man can't tell if the mouse was there or not.
We will try this humane trap for a few more nights, but may have to consider a glue trap.
Let's hope we win this battle soon!
PS We haven't seen Mischief Mickey around for several weeks. We have seen Mrs. Fox and our neighbour says she has 2 babies, so it is possible Mickey has become part of the circle of life.
