Our house is bordered on two sides by a vivero (nursery) where palm trees are grown. The cats love to go under the fence (actually, Jerry has built them a little tunnel) and roam around in their own private jungle. One of them is a real hunter and brings these tiny little field mice home as gifts to us. Until we wised up and closed our bedroom door, he brought them into our bed in the middle of the night! One evening last summer, my visiting daughter and I were sitting on the living room couch and he bolts through the front window with a little furry creature in his mouth. I swear he tried to drop it down my daughter's pants...and of course, we could not find it. Later, we got up and realized one of us had sat on the poor little thing. Flat as a pancake. Oops.

now that is a funny story.

my kid when she was a teenager was raising guenia pigs( for profit, lol) a whole gang of babies got out in house, the dog got a couple and we caught some.

went into my bedroom and pulled out laundrey basket and one was backed up in the corner. i thought "oh poor little thing" and reached for it. it bit me where the thumb and fore finger join. in reflex , i through it off my hand into the wall. killed the little bugger.

he deserved it for attacking me, when i was only trying to help it. lol

babe

Picture a cat strumming a guitar here is his song
Love them little mouse's
that's what I love to eat
I bite their little heads off
and nibble on their tiny feet

I was cleaning out the back room yesterday, trying to get some junk out of there to throw away today, which I'm doing now.

To my horror, I saw a large gaping hole in the right wall on the window sill!!! I immediatelty began to realise that that is where those pesky little rodents have been getting in, along with squirrells and whatever else have you!

Went downstairs and told the landlord about it, since he's having work done downstairs. Meanwhile, I had to do something to keep them out, so I had to nail a board to that wall
for some repitition against those pesky uninvited guests.

Well you've won half the battle by finding their entry hole, Corey. WooHoo! Here's to no more uninvited furry guests!

I hope that's the end of them. But I think they're still in the building inside the walls. The place needs to be exterminated.

I gotta get some more steel wool the first chance I get!!

Nothing more was happening with a new trap set under the kitchen counter, so a couple weeks ago I moved it downstairs and put it on a shelf where I caught a mouse about four years ago.

Note to self: Don't forget to check the trap if you move it somewhere else
