Mouse update

I'd just about given up on catching the critter, especially when it maneuvered itself into the living room, chewing on the inside of the couch. Couldn't see it, of course, but heard the little chomping noises. I listlessly tossed a couple of baited traps under the couch, not expecting a thing.

I just got back from the store and heard squeaking in the kitchen. Could it be????? Ta -da! Mighty Mouse got a little too greedy and stuck to the trap with his mouth around a hunk of cheese. Just in time, too. I had visions of it scampering all over me at night since I've been sleeping in the living room while it's hot.

Mouse hunting takes time.They're smart little critters. Congrats on thisaone. Any more? Try a four way trap - two facing each other, two more, one on each side where the critter would have to stand to reach one. Caught five at once that way back in Mass.

Nope, that was the only so far. I did catch one a few months ago right away. But this one was very crafty. His luck just ran out.
