Waging War

I am waging "WAR" again for the second year in a row! Last year was the first time we ever had a mouse in our house (yes actually in our house, invading our space! Don't they understand that their space is that vast area called the Outdoors?)

Last year we had a cat who at  least was able to notify us when the little bugger had made his way into my cupboard(not sure why but I just assume it's a he). Thank god he chose the cupboard (although chose is probably not the right word), it was the cupboard next to the kitchen sink which I believe is where he came out after climbing up the plumbing pipes from downstairs) which is the one where I keep Tupperware stuff mostly. The main reason I know we have one upstairs is because I found a pile of pink plastic shavings. After carefully moving things around I found the cover of a dish that now had little holes arranged all around the entire circumference (like
that one?).

So anyway as you can see I rushed out and purchased a multitude of wares to  wage my war! I bought a live trap so he could be put back outdoors (and that's only if someone other than me has to pick it up, cause if it's me(and I really hope it isn't) the whole thing is quickly going into the garbage can!) I also bought the snap ones cause if he is too stupid to  go into the one that could save his life, then he's left me no choice but to go the other route (and we all know what that means!)

I also bought the ones where they go in and eat poison and then eventually DIE from it! The only thing with that  is where they are when they succumb to it?? I don't really relish the thought of the resulting smell.

I know one thing for sure, if I happen to run into it in close quarters I am not sure which one us will be more scared!

A mouse (plural: mice) is a small mammal belonging to the order of rodents. The best known mouse species is the common house mouse (Mus musculus). It is also a popular pet. In some places, certain kinds of field mice are also common. This rodent is eaten by large birds such as hawks and eagles. They are known to invade homes for food and occasionally shelter.

Ok the "popular pet" thing is beyond me, why would anyone want it as a pet, eeewwww!!
