There's a mouse in the house

I seriously wish that I was referring to a children's book. Unfortunately, the house I speak of, is mine. There's a mouse in my house.

How did it get in? Why is it here? How can I get it to leave? I am 1,000 times freaked out! There are tell tale little mouse poopies on the floor. My son saw it run by him. Hubby heard it scratching along the wall. HELP!

The irony is while we are trying to eradicate a field mouse from the house, we have 2 domestic mice as pets. Oh geez.

Any suggestions?


  1. Suggestion #1- get a cat (ot two) although your domestic mice may object.
    Suggestion #2- trap. I would either get a 'quick kill' type trap or a live trap. Definitely NOT those icky sticky glue traps- those are just cruel. The live traps work if you can take them somewhere far away from your home.
    We have both kinds of traps and cats. Of course, we had a terrible, terrible mouse problem when we bought the house. Now- not so bad, the cats take care of them.
    Good luck.

  2. Oh, I wish that we could get a cat. I have family members with allergies. My hubby did catch the little sucker! I don't know how, or where it is. I don't want to know. I wanted it gone, but would be sad if it died.

    I'm weird. I know! Ha ha
