Chester the Third

So you know how they say that Cats have 9 lives...well, I now know that mice have at least 3 lives. Only time will tell as for the remainder of his little lives. We had a visit from Chester again last night. After two previous times, I was actually better able to sleep, but he did wake me up a good 3 times. No we are not extremely dirty people, though J swears we have too many crumbs around here from our toddling eater. We are in a very evolving spot.

The first mouse came after they cleared the lot to build the CVS diagonally across the street. The second visitor came the very morning they drove the house off of the lot across the street. Now they have begun construction on a huge "lot" and are in the process of moving two more houses (already drove one off). They are clearing the area and preparing to build a whole bunch of townhomes. And we got a visitor. We have packets under the house and plugged up the only "hole" we knew of. Still, he came, he visited, he died...and all that for some peanut butter (on the trap of course).

Hope that is the end of chester!

I can feel your pain. We have had some mice in our garage. And what makes it worse, is that I'm in charge of the extermination process, ie. setting the traps and disposing of the carcasses. It is very distressing. I just hope they are not in our house, but you never know!

Awww, come on and get a humane trap! He could have been released into the wild. LOL (You need to move).

When you think about it, we probably all have mice under our houses(unless it's a slab house, I guess). Kinda yucky. I hope you don't see any more visitors. BTW, is your house staying put for now?

This mouse story just reminded me of a nursery rhyme:
Three blind mice,Three blind mice,
See how they run,See how they run
They all ran after the farmer's wife,
Who cut off their tails with the butcher knife,
Did you ever see such a thing in your life,
As three blind mice!
