Just a mouse in a reusable trap.

Second one this week.

lovely. at least that's one less mouse in your house. this is the time of year when they tend to seek shelter...

correction - TWO fewer - I really must learn to read.

Whoa, awesome! I kinda like when I can hear the traps snap! in the night. I don't have that problem in this house gratefully although a few months ago I dreamed I had mice all in the house and when I entered the kitchen THAT morning bleary-eyed, what should surprise me ON TOP OF THE COUNTER but a nasty huge mouse! He skiddadled down the stove and out the back. I immediately, without benefit of caffeine, pulled that sucker out and discovered the cord hole had come unplugged of it's foam stuff. I plugged it up temporarily with steel wool until I could purchase the goo.

Knock on wood- that's the only mouse Ive had since I am always searching for calling cards.

bleecchhh!

I can't imagine using re-usable traps. I put my old fashioned ones in boxes and throw out the whole thing. But (knock on wood) I haven't had one since my kitchen was re-done. Steel wool.

Michelle sent me but I'd be here anyway.
UGH! Is your cat related to Sinclair? He brings in various undead nasties. And we now haw a humane trap in the airing cupboard.....
My life shouldn't be about such things!!!!!!!

Kerri said...

OMG! That thing is huge! What were you feeding it?! ;)

Anne said...

Feather, we don't have a cat, hence the trap.

Kerri, the mice in my house eat the butter if we don't keep it covered. So I load the traps with butter, not peanut butter or cheese.

Hello, Michele sent me.

At least you have two fewer mice in the house now :)

Looks like you need another cat.
