I hear a mouse

Mousing is Hard Work

Originally uploaded by sudergal

It came to my attention about a week ago that there is another living thing running around. No, it’s not our friend that is staying here for a while but a mouse. I know this because I found mouse poo behind the dog food bag near a little hole that had been knawed in the side.

In fact, I saw said mouse the other night when I was watching Tv late at night. I screamed like the maid in the Tom and Jerry cartoons. I didn’t grow up with mice running around so I don’t know what to do. My husband says he’ll get a mouse trap this weekend.

In the mean time I’m here on my computer at 8:30 a.m. and I hear little scratchings coming from the vicinity of the dog food can. I went out and bought a large plastic container for the food hoping the mouse would give up and go away. Now I find poo behind the plastic bin and I imagine there will be little scratchings on the side.

Normally I’m a humane sort of gal but honestly I want the little fucker to be dead and out of my house. Until we get a trap I was hoping that my jerk of a dog would maybe hunt it down but instead she’s camped outside our guest room waiting for our housemate to emerge so she can what can best be described as molest him…freakin jerk-dog. I’d get a cat but dear husband is allergic and I like having him around. Maybe if I treat the mouse as a guest the dog will pay more attention and molest it to death.
