One Mouse Down

Caught one mouse. Took a whole day but late yesterday evening, he went to his mouse rainbow bridge or wherever mice go. Haven't caught another yet but the trap is in place. The pest control was supposed to bring the sticky traps but they didn't show up. I'm afraid my dog will get in that room and get caught.

My bird is not happy. I am not in the room with her. She is in the "mouse" room and I'm not. She is getting lonely in there. I only look in a couple times a day. She is not talking at all with no one there. I guess I should turn on the tv for her. She likes being in the same room with me and talks up a storm all the time. Gets upset if I don't talk back.

My camera hookup is also in mouseland. I haven't downloaded my photos from today's outing yet. May go in there and drag all that out to the other computer too. If I don't catch any more mice, it will probably be about surgery time before I feel I can return to my room. And then I will be spooky every time I see a flicker or hear a tiny sound. I have the hall door closed and a towel across the bottom. I will probably do that to the closet from now on. I told you, I am really spooky about mice.

My husband laughs at me. The last mouse we had, he cracked up when he came home and I was standing in a chair and bending down taking laundry from the washer to the dryer. But drats can't get up on the chair now.

Perhaps a cat would help with mice? Don't know about the bird/cat combo, though.

No that wouldn't work. Besides I have two bird dogs (yellow lab and golden retriever). I have to keep the bird in the office away from them.

The cats I used to have were too well-fed. When we had a mouse when they were living, they didn't have a clue.

Glad to hear you caught one of the critters. When I was teaching one year we were using another school building for a while while our building was being repaired. The new building was full of mice. The kids were working on a standardized test one day and a pair of them came through the room. It didn't even phase the kids. They just picked up their feet and kept on working. At the end of the day, I was always afraid to pick up my purse. I'd shake it real hard and wait a minute before I took it.
