Mouse in the House!!

| | Comments (4)
We turned the light on in the kitchen late last night and saw not one but two cockroaches.  Not german cockroaches, but a bit similar.  So that was a little icky, and we're obviously going to have to be a bit more diligent about keeping the kitchen tidy.

But then I went into the bed room to get ready for bed, and saw what initially looked to be a *massive* cockroach scurrying along the top of the dirty clothes basket.  Deciding it was too big to be any sort of crawling insect, I realised it was a mouse.  Called Stu in, and we basically had it cornerd to one half of the bedroom, with no way out except past us.  Saw it hiding in one corner behind my dresser.  So I stuck a container next to the dresser and we forced it out from behind it.

It was soooo cute!! And *tiny* too. I wanted to keep it, but since it wasn't raised around humans, there was every chance the thing would have a heart attack and die on us, or just run away.  So I let it go in the front yard.

You let it go in the front yard?

10 minutes later it would have been back inside the house.

You're supposed to kill them - they have diseases. Maybe you need a pet cat (of course, then you'll need a laser-pointer)
