So I left another baited trap out last night, and we’ve had no kills.
For some reason I find this reassuring. We’re not about to be overrun, I think. We just have a mice problem.
I got some feedback on my posts about the mice yesterday from friends. Thanks for the feedback! I chose the glue pads at random, because it was what the local Wal-Mart had those few weeks ago. And Leah was looking at cats and dogs on adoption sites last night, and I’m up for that. Unfortunately we were told by Meg that we really won’t know if a pet is a mouser until we see it confronted with a mouse. Some pets may simply want to watch, or play with whatever mice they see.
