there's a mouse in my house

There might be TWO actually...if there are more than two I'm going to totally freak out! This little mouse moves quick, I can only just barely glimpse it out of the corner of my eye as it streaks around the kitchen. I can hear it though....It was in my oven -- having a little mouse party in there.

I'm totally terrified of it. Totally T-E-R-R-I-F-I-E-D!

Where does the completely irrational fear of mice come from?

The first time it charged me (or ran by me, depends on your point of view) it had a look of "I want to eat your eyeballs" in it's eyes -- or possibly "Aaaaaaaah, SUPER HUGE MONSTER ... RUN AWAY!!!!". It was hard to tell it all happened so fast.

So, now I'm off to bed, where I'm thinking of taping off the cracks in the door so I can sleep without the fear of my eyeballs being eaten out by the mouse in the house.

Makes me wish I had a cat...almost.

How did you catch it? Your blog readers want to know in case something like that ever happens to them!

I didn't catch's maybe running around the house or hopefully (fingers double crossed) it has worked its way back to the out of doors. I haven't heard it/seen it for a day now.

I think you should move.

I feel your pain! I had one too, in my oven, as well. One of my (male) friends said Just turn the oven on!! Uh, fried mouse? No thank you. I got the no see, no touch traps and they did not trap a dang thing. You just have to try to fill in any holes you may have- look under the sink, where pipes come in, etc and close them up! I think to really get rid of one the old snap trap is the only way to go. YUCK!!!

I stuffed the small holes under the sink with steel wool, they apparently really don't like to chew through that stuff. I still think he's on an adventure from the garage where I've been working a lot and going back and forth into the house...It makes me think of Ratatouille...if only the mouse could cook!
