OK, OK


I think I may have to borrow some of Betsy's (My Five Men blog) cats! As you know mine are gone now and some one cute has decided to move on up the stairs. And he is soo cute and I named him which is a real no no but you know how I am with animals (rodents in particular) Yes, Lil'Buddy has decided that he is king of the hill now and had been making his presence, though not physical presence, known of a morning when I am getting ready for work. Well, the other night I was on the phone to my sister and we talked till about 12:30am and I decided to go into the kitchen. The lights were burning bright and there 'him' was, dark gray with velvety ears, bright black button eyes and the tiniest feets I ever saw! He was only about 2inches long. I can't help it, people, he is darned cute..looks just like a toy, honestly. I just want to scoop him up and put him in a cage with a wheel to run around in. My son was appalled. He said, "Mom! you can't keep him as a pet!" I just looked at him. He said "I know how you are! Mom they can eat your wiring and burn your house literally down and besides they are a health hazard!" Ok ok, but I'm not killing him. I will find a humane trap and take him where he can be cute somewhere else. So now I am looking at themousedepot.com for one...the testimonials are great. And I know what you are thinking..you better get several cause there is never just one mouse. OK OK OK. Now if he was a bug I would place death traps everywhere! I am petrified of bugs.
Shhhh~know what?~I am getting tired of mouseproofing the kitchen every night before I go to bed. I'm ordering right now. Ok, Ok, he'll just have to be cute somewhere else.

Its best to make yourself believe there is only ONE - still cute(ish) - mouse-about-the-house. Can just imagine things getting all Tom And Jerry if you got another cat; that mouse will think its HIS house! Let us know how you get on with rehoming him... xx

I do empathise because no-one likes to kill a living creature, so a humane trap is a good idea...and it will be even better if you buy one and put it down!!

You know they do pee pretty well non-stop...

good luck!

haha...I've used that same picture on my blog. It's hilarious! Oh, we have had our share of mice. It is so much better when you have a cat to catch them! Yes, they are so adorable, I will admit. But them when you open the pantry and kitchen drawers and their puddles and droppings are everywhere you decide they would be cute somewhere else! lol....good luck with the trapping! :) We're trapping raccoons tonight. lol...

You are so right, Elaine. It will be better if when I get the trap that I actually put it down! haha that cracked me up!

Kim said...

Betsy, I've been thinking about Taylor trapping those raccoons and letting them go. My how brave he is to do that. That is quite a feat I'm sure. Sounds like your yard is full of the same wildlife as mine!

Oh I love this post! I totally understand, but if you're anything like me, the minute you start to see what they do to your house, you'll have the resolve you need to let him be cute elsewhere. :)
