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.
