Oh, it’s ON!

24 Oct

Since the suicide last week, the mice have been quiet. While we’ve assumed it wouldn’t be the last of them, we weren’t prepared for this:

Symbol

Ladies and Gentlemen, that bare trap is a symbol: the mice have declared war. Oh, yes, there was peanut butter on that there trap, but when I went to go check the traps this weekend, the mice showed me that they’re craftier than we originally assumed. They now have shown that they can eat the peanut butter without setting off the trap, and that, that is a bad sign.

Now we’ve pulled out all the stops and set 2 extras traps. We’ll show you how sneaky WE can be.

Which means there will be more dead mice. But, I don’t think there will be any more pictures, rest assured. Once you’ve seen one dead mouse, you’ve seen them all.

However, while setting these traps, I did something…well…not so smart. Peanut butter is delicious, right? Licking the peanut butter knife after spreading it on a trap that a mouse has recently licked all the peanut butter off is DISGUSTING! Chris was watching me while I did it, and the moment that knife touched my tongue, we both realized what I did…

It’s like I just made out with a mouse.

    We got 3 feral barn cats. We never see them. But we haven’t had nearly as much mice! Also try some different traps. We used to do those traps too. But we got some black, easy set snap traps. They work great and we can use them over and over again!

      The day I picked up the traps was a Saturday and all the hardware stores were already closed, so I didn’t have much of a selection! We’re going to try some Decon, too, since we don’t have any other pets.

      And on another note, I WISH I COULD HAVE A CAT! (Chris…did you see that?)

    Aha, it is clear now. This is all a nefarious plot to sneak a cat or two into your place. How devious you can be…..
