Meep!

There is a fairly small grey mouse in the cupboard under our sink. It's *rustling* things.

I don't know why I'm scared of it - I like mice. I used to have pet mice. I'm not sure if this one might be someone's pet mouse - it's grey, and it doesn't seem all that shy, to be honest. It's not much fussed by bright light, and when I opened the cupboard door a second time it was just sitting there, at the front, not hiding behind anything...

Can I get humane mouse traps in Woolworths?

Not in Woolies, but most pet shops and I think Wilkinsons do as well.

So, oh humane one, where exactly do you wish to deposit the little mouse to slowly freeze to death? SOmewhere out in the country where it'll undoubtly die a slow death of exposure or are you going to give it a sporting chance of dumping it in the city where it'll be someone elses problem?

Sorry, i had a long think about humane mouse traps and decided against them. Maybe in summer it might be ok to dump in country, but never just outside. Better and kinder to kill them quick.

Just make sure you don't point out the possibility to jo that, if the mouse can get in, so can those lovely rats.

Tell me, was there sooty footprints leading to the cupboard from the chimney?

I think you're probably right about the humane traps, unfortunately :(

Rats are bigger than mice and eat them, so if we have mice that means we don't have rats. Which is nice. (Also, you are aware spiderpixie reads this, right? Heh)

Will check for sooty footprints when I get in. Possibly.
