an uninvited one I may add. Its small, brown and furry, and I am not sure if it is a he or she, but answers to the name of MOUSE!!!! I couldn't believe it, I was getting ready to go to bed on Sunday night and there it was wandering through the family room. After letting out a screech, I decided to go and get a brush and try and get it out of the patio door.
To cut a stupid story short, it ended up behind the stove and went down a hole we have in the floor, and probably ended up in the basement. So I went to store on Monday and bought a couple of mouse traps. The guy said these ones are washable so I can use them over and over again (HUH?) Luckily he told me where to place them and to put peanut butter on them. Who knew mice liked peanut butter, I thought it was cheese?
After a few false starts and a few times of it going off and me having peanut butter all over my hands, I managed to get them set. I will say I am so not looking forward to there being anything in the traps, but I can't have brown furry creatures wandering around the house willy nilly, now can I?
I picked up some ant traps at the store also, as I am determined once and for all to get rid of these stupid ants. The manager of the store was passing by me, and was asking how things were, and I was telling her, at this rate, we will have the whole of the wildlife community living in the house with us. The bluebottle situation is still miserable, I find as the day progresses the worse they get?
The humidity has hit and we have no a/c. So last night we had to use a small table fan we had purchased on the weekend in the bedroom and we survived. So fingers crossed we will be okay through the rest of the summer.
We popped down to the animal shelter late Monday afternoon and filled in an application for a cat. They will let us know if they will accept our application. They do turn down people, so not sure how it will go. I'll post more on it when we get to know what's what.
