    mouse trap

    I have two dogs. The little one is about 60 lbs and great with everyone unless it is just women home, then dont come in if you are a guy. My other one is a doberman. Great big sweet dog. Looks mean and is very protective if someone is not suppose to be here. Anyway, in the fall we usually have mice get into the house so we set out traps. Well I set out a couple where I did not think the dogs could get to. They did now I cant get either one of them to go upstairs. They are scared to death of mouse traps. Another one snapped with a mouse in it, upstairs, you can barley hear it from here and both dogs ran under my desk. Actually kinda funny, poor dogs. They werent hurt at all. I just noticed them acting funny and two traps snapped with nothing in them.

    My Min Pin (Maggie) is by nature a ratter... they are actually like terriers in that they were bred to hunt rats and mice.

    We also get mice when the weather turns cold.

    I thought Mags was interested in the garbage can under the sink when I think she was really going buggy because some mice had gotten in there.

    I exterminated an entire family of them in the course of a day... one mom, one dad, and a small bunch of little baby hoppers are now in mouse heaven.

    oh mice... I cooked one in a toaster once by accident...

    I remember back when there was a major chinese orange ladybird invasion in canada, my dog would chase around the ones that got in the house.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    I swear I didn't know it was eating the crumbs in the toaster when I loaded it up.

    didn't eat bread for a week after that and got a new, sealed toaster after that

    Yea, that would be pretty nasty if you noticed the cooked mouse in the toaster until after breakfeast.

    the toaster started rattling mysteriously, after a brief investigation a mouse was found inside... cooked

    and if a mice can get inside there, then there might have been mouse droppings, which aren't too good to human health.

    I like all living things and if possible would prefer to catch and release the little varmints but they would only find their way back inside, have tons of gratuitous sex, and make more varmints.

    And hey...if I'm not getting any...why should they ?

    I once had an audio tuner/amp that wasn't working properly, so i took the back panel off and messed with it, to no avail. I placed it by the door to take out to the trash the following day. Late that night, I heard a weird twanging noise, like a low tuned guitar. Turns out my cat had her paw buried inside the amp up to her shoulder and was clawing at the string that pulls the station frequency indicator bar.

    I wasn't sure why the heck she was doing this (too much cat nip?) turns out upon very careful inspection, I saw a tiny pink tail inside - a mouse had crept in and was hiding at the front of the case. I finally took the case outside and shook the mouse out with some difficulty...it looked pretty freaked out.
