A Mouse in the House

No. This is not just some joke about a children's nursery rhyme. I wish it was.

When I went through the kitchen to let Maggie out this morning, I found the pile of shavings pictured above. Yesterday, we found evidence of something eating our bread. Maybe it was an ant (ha wishful thinking) or maybe it was something else....

This is the pantry where we keep all of our food. It is a closed door cabinet. But it appears that some critter was smart enough to figure out how to open the door (hence the shavings) and devour our bread (and walk all over our other food containers....who knows) because I discovered a second loaf of bread with a hole as I went to fix breakfast this morning (and some mouse droppings....ewww gross, I shouldn't have told you that).

Pest control came this morning. The sticky traps are out. I don't know what I'll do if I find that little mouse critter, probably scream and make Matt come get it. I'll keep you posted....


  1. You need to watch the movie "Mouse Hunt."

    Thy retribution for harming God's creatures cometh! lol

    Bad karma....

    Your Father

  2. Oh I hate the sticky traps...they are the worst! If you don't find them, at least name them...I did that with my mice in NYC and Philly!
