OK you know I've been complaining about
my mice problem.
Well the body count is up to 8 now!! OMG i can't get over that #. 8!
We caught 4 today! I can't believe I had that many mice and maybe more. They are coming in through the garage. And we have little holes in the wall under the back kitchen door (the door goes to the garage) like in cartoons. We'll patch them when we know they are gone.
We caught 2 in traps-I heard the one under the sink snap (eewwwww) the other in the garage was empty when I let the dogs out and not 15 min. later I let the dogs back in and there was another (ick).
Then I heard my cat pounce on something in the dining room, and she had one in her mouth. ALIVE! Then she'd drop it, play with it, pick it up, drop it. But not kill it. I encouraged her to off it and even begged her too. but she didn't. so I caught it in a box and took it outside. I through it over my back fence (the house there is vacant and has been for over a year-the owners come and go)
It can live there. It was a fat sucker too. probably pregnant again. Anyway I stuck my dogs back outside so it wouldn't go back through the yard.
THEN, I thought, surely that's it. BUT no, my doxy, Osca,r kept going crazy at the high chair leg. We yelled at him and kicked him out of the dining room. And then, sure enough, one crawled out of the leg. WHAT THE *&^$!!
I couldn't believe it. My cat caught it first, but I didn't want it to get away so I let Oscar back in there to kill it.
I screamed and ran (EEEEEK), my husband watched to make sure the deed was done. It was a little one. I feel sooo bad. But can you imagine if I'd live trapped them all (which I used to do-but since it's so cold outside, they'd just freeze/starve and die anyway) if i had, i'd be making trips to the park all the time.
I hope they are gone. I've sprayed everything with lysol and mopped my floors AGAIN! I'm definitely shampooing my carpets this weekend.
By the way All this happened very quickly-like they made a pact to go out together or something.
