Wild Mice! by TERRY S on 17 November 2009 11:51pm
 
Hi, gang. Snoopy brought a mouse indoors today. It was still squeaking so I rescued it. Trouble is - it escaped. I really want to return it to the garden, but can't find it. The last time I saw it, it was up in the bedroom. I checked and it is no longer there. How can I find it and lure it out without hurting it so I can put it back outside. I want to get to it before Snoopy and Emony do.

Anyone got ideas?

There are Hav-a-heart traps that you can set up that will capture a mouse without killing it. Peanut butter is often a good lure.

Snoopy and Emony are cats? Cats, deep in their souls, know that mice present them with the absolutely best possible balanced diet so you will have to work fast.

Yes, a humane trap will be a good idea. Hope the cats don't get it.

Too late. Emony won! RIP Mickey!

Oh dear.....hardly surprising tho, not much gets in between a mouse and a cat.

Oh no, poor little mouse!

Yeah, I buried him today - poor baby.

You buried him ? Your cat was meant to eat him ! What gets me about old Mcgill is, he can obviously hunt and does so; so why does he come miowing for food all the time ?

Yes, eating him would mean that he would not go to waste and that his death had a purpose. (sigh)

I've got a feral cat, Violet, on my property who moved into my garage and did a great job of getting rid of the mice and roofrats who were gnawing on everything (including wiring which set off a fire once.) Once the rodent population was under control, I began feeding canned cat food to Violet to keep her around. All those "flavor enhansers" have totally seduced her to the point where she now won't eat the vermin she catches but places them in her food bowl, demanding that I exchange the body for some yummy commercial food. I've created a monster.

Yeah G, McGill's previous 'mum' said that he may bring us the occassional 'present', meaning a dead bird but Meg was still shocked to see him scoffing that wee mouse !
