Remember those cute, furry little uninvited guests? Well, nearly 2 weeks ago I declared war.
Two snap traps and one night later: 2 ex-mice.
Then it went quiet for a week.
Two nights ago I noticed that the baking tray cupboard was gaining extra poop. Moved 1 trap into that cupboard, 1 mouse that night.
What I wasn't expecting was the following evening.
I went to bed, heard the trap snap, found a mouse. Dispatched it (alas, the trap caught it by the leg rather than the neck). 15 minutes later, another snap, another one needing to be killed. And yet another while I was asleep.
4 mice in 24 hours?!
Surely that has to be all of them? Surely 6 mice is all?
So I sit quietly in the living room, deciding if I want to watch a DVD or listen to music...
pitter patter, pitter patter
You have GOT to be kidding!
More lead boots in the loft!
I'm thinking I need to buy more traps.
Still, mice in the house is better than four directional damp in previous rents.
