Mouse in the House
This past Sunday as I was exiting the kitchen to the garage I almost stepped on a field mouse that was on the door ledge. It quickly scampered away.
Oh no, not a Mouse in the House again. Remember the problem I had last year? One night after I came home from work I encountered a mouse in my pantry. I think he was as surprised as I was when I opened the door looking for a late night snack. I put out mouse traps and caught the little (fat) bugger the next day. He was hiding out under the refrigerator next to the warm coils. Much to my surprise I also caught another mouse in my Have-a-Heart trap. I think that was his wife. I took her down to the end of Oyster Rocks Road, to start a new life in those wetlands near the Broadkill River.
Yesterday I prepared (with peanut butter) and put out four deadly mouse traps. I also put out the Have-a-Heart trap with a big chunk of cheese.
This morning I expected to see a squashed and bloody mouse in one of the traps. Nothing.
This afternoon when I went out through the garage I happened to see two brown eyes looking at me through the metal screen of the Have-a-Heart trap. One lucky mouse
Bill and I took it down to the end of Oyster Rocks Road to join its cousin from last year that I released there.
I put the Have-a-Heart trap out. I fully expect another mouse to show up. Hopefully it will be smart and take the bait (a big chuck of cheese) in the Have-a-Heart trap.
