mouse in my house.

you read it right.

we have a mouse and supposedly when there's one, there's not just one. a couple of days ago i noticed my dog start obsessively searching around the house. i have seen this behavior from him before. then it hit me. nooooooooooooo. we had mice one other time and this is exactly what he did. so i thought i'd look around myself for signs. sure enough there were droppings in the pantry. i still haven't found any food that has been gotten into, but the proper measures are about to be taken.

let's just say i'm not too thrilled about our evening plans. we will be hitting up target for food/pet food containers, mowing, cleaning behind/around the fridge, stove, washer and dryer, setting a live trap and filling any holes as we go.

i don't know what they are coming in my house for. i'm so OCD, i make sure all the kitchen counters are clean and all the dirty dishes are put away every night. the only thing i can think that might spark their interest is the dog food and water. stupid moochers. hopefully we end this quickly.

--makes me miss living in the country under the protection of outside cats!

any tips?


  1. Oh no! Sorry about your mice invaders! Hope you re-direct them soon!

  2. OH NO! We had those in our old house. We set mouse traps up and kept our fingers crossed that we would catch all of them. We did. At least I think we did? Good luck!

  3. maybe it's the weather? bummer. i've never had that problem. good luck!!!

  4. oh no!! i wish i had some tips for you! praying this problem gets taken care of soon, and they don't come back!

  5. I have absolutely no tips for you...maybe a humongous shovel?? :-)

  6. OMG, that sucks. It happened to me at an old apt in SF and it was horrible. I don't know if this would work but we put out one of those traps one night, the old fashion kind and it totally worked by the next morning. Gross but effective...hehe

    Good luck
