We have this cute little mouse in our house. Jybow, our big cat, had it cornered with the help of his little annoying buddy Petey when someone even more annoying came to help allowing the mouse to get away.
Jybow had the mouse trapped in a corner and the mouse looked pretty worn out when Jimmy noticed what was going on and went to the aide of the cat. That's when the mouse made its hasty getaway. So now the mouse is loose in the house somewhere and has to be caught before it chews holes in something I treasure.
I hate mouse traps because I don't want to kill the poor little misplaced creature, but I do want him out of here. If we can manage to trap him alive then I'll take him back by the creek and release him there where he'll have plenty of corn & nuts to eat all winter. This is the first little field mouse that I've seen in the house in a long time and he's probably not alone.
