I wont be sleeping well tonight, there is a mouse on the loose in our house. We have been chasing it around for the past 2 hours and we think it is in our bedroom, but really not sure. We set 4 traps upstairs and will be sleeping in the basement. I hope we wake up in the morning to find it caught in the trap! I found out tonight that my husband is apparently as afraid of mice as I am. It was quite a circus with the two of us running around scared trying to find it. Our dog Brewster had the common sense to stay downstairs.
Any one have a cat that can catch mice? If so, can we borrow it for a day or two?
UPDATE: Well the good news is we caught the mouse, or should I say mice, there were 2 of them. This is so gross, I wonder how long they've been there and where all have they been. I'm hoping not long, there was minimal evidence of droppings found, but we did find some in the linen closet and our bedroom closet, so does this mean we have to wash everything, or do they stay low on the ground?
The other good news is our closet is now clean, which I've been meaning to do for a long time but haven't gotten around to it. Nothing like finding a mouse in your closet to motivate you. We also now have a large donation of clothes to give to the GoodWill. So I guess something good came out of all of this.
I think just to be on the safe side, we will leave traps set and sleep in the basement again tonight.
