  1. A. Grey,
    I went on a “hole hunt”, found the entry point into the house (under the kitchen sink), hubby came home with “foam in a can” and plugged up the hole. A few hours later we heard the SNAP and the drama was over 🙂

    Thanks for all your ideas! We are leaving the traps out for the next few days just in case there are more.

  2. I don’t want to alarm you but make sure they can’t “chew” through the foam. Use steel wool because when they try to bit through they cut their mouths and give up.

    Gees, do we all sound murderous with the poor little mouse?
    Heck no. The only ones who are cute are the ones at Disney Studios.

  3. Ramblings,

    The foam is pretty solid, but we’ve got steel wool on hand as a backup.

    Thanks for your advice on going on a “hole hunt”! We wouldn’t have figured out where it was coming in without it.

  4. Glad the little blighter is gone. They’re cute to look at but not pleasant to live with. One of our Shelties used to be good at identifying where the mouse was hiding when one invaded our summer cabin. He went “on point” like the sporting dog he wasn’t. But it was up to my DH to capture it. If I remember correctly, I think he smacked it with a broom… stunned it long enough to get put outdoors into the bush where it scampered away to tell its tale of terror to other mousy families. We haven’t had a problem since.

  5. Our puppy was useless through the entire thing 🙂

    Even when my dear hubby held the bag (with the mouse inside) in front of his nose he just looked at it calmly and went back to sleep.
