    So I get home tonight and Im greeted by a mouse running off through some shoes I left by the front door. Impressed by his presence, I immediately went out and bought him (or her... I didn't check) some rat bait and mouse traps as a reward for trespassing.

    Turns out all I needed was a good rubbermaid container

    Im sitting at my dining room table putting together a lego set, when the little bugger circles around my island coming out of the kitchen. His mistake was going behind a cooler I had and I was able to box him in. With the little guy hunkered down in the corner, I grabbed up the rubbermaid container, scooped him up, took him outside and gave him an unceremonious toss into the woods.

    And now he is making his way back through the weeds and high grass and will be back into your house by morning.

    Of course he didn't, do you know what those containers cost? That would be idiotic.

    Oh, and needless torment, prolonged suffering blah blah blah.

    I hate mice... And it's really nice to know I sleep next to a room where my dad regularly catches a mouse a week... (unfinished storage area above the garage)

    If my cat had found it, she would likely have run away. She slapped around a baby king snake that had found it's way into the house. She thought it was some kind of string. She's not the the brightest cat. However, a past cat I had being the sadistic beast he was would've ripped the head off after playing with it a bit. He did that to baby birds he caught. He then consumed them with great pride and gusto.

    Now my Rat Terrier, Rambo, would've likely gone ape-shit over a mouse and would've tried to kill it. Good breeding. My last Rat Terrier, Mowgli, killed I don't know HOW many pack rats and mice outside the house. He would go at them and crush them causing instant death. Once he got on their scent, it was next to impossible to get him away from it, even if the pack rat or mouse had already run off. Not even a soaking from a garden hose would do it. He tried to bring several in to the house to show off.

    Unfortunately, name changes aren't allowed. Trust me, I know... ;-)

    My cats bring the bastards IN the house. Nothing like waking up in the morning and finding a half dead mouse in your bedroom with your cat just LOOKING at it. Another time I was in the similar situation as MM trying to chase a mouse. During that time I looked at the cat and decide he would be better at the task than I would. I used our laser pointer to guide him to the mouse and once it was on the mouse I turned it off. After I turned it off he just STOOD there and looked at it for half a minute before realizing that there's a mouse there. Once he did see it he finally gave chase, but caught it and LET IT GO!

    Yeah, my cat likes to kill mice, birds, and cihpmunks for me and leave bits and pieces on the porch. It's kinda gross, but I know it's his way of showing affection, so I can't get made.

    Once he just left the kidneys, though, and they'd been removed with damn near surgical precision. That was just creepy.

    Kidney's huh? That's pretty impressive.

    Just a couple of months ago, I had to kill about 80 mice for a science experiment we were working on. Man, that was fun.

    :lol  Im eating my lunch out of an identical container... hmm the salad seems a little extra crunchy today :p 


    ... actually the container I used to catch the mouse in is sitting in the sink soaking in a soapy bleech water solution... though somehow I don't think I'll be using that container for food again.

    I would've kept it as a pet. The cats would've had a new show to watch.

    The only problem is there won't be a cat in the house until early next year when my GF moves in.
