Last night about midnight I was sitting at home in my little office minding my own business when what looked like a huge mouse or small rat scuttled right past me. (OK not so huge but the size of an adult mouse!) I think it was a mouse but ran by too fast for me to see. I stayed up til the early hours trying to catch it but it either ran too fast for me to fling a bucket over it or it hid in among my tat!
This house is only a few years old and there is no-where it could possibly live to find enough food to survive so what’s it doing in here???. its not as if I leave waste food hanging around…its an office full of papers!
This morning its still here…I’m in my office now (working from home) knowing that the mouse might run over my feet any minute…The door is shut and it cannot escape but there are enough hidey places for it to be clever and escape the mesh waste paper basket that I’m trying to hurl over it.
Please folks… any ideas on how to catch it without harming it? Oh and Ive checked all my local shops in walking distance and there are no humane traps anywhere and I couldn’t bear to cut its head off with a traditional spring trap and a piece of cheese.
Oh and when I do catch it what am I going to do with it?
