We have a mouse. Last night I went downstairs to get a water glass for A. and when I flipped on the living room light I saw a quick little scurry out of the corner of my eye.
I saw it run under our big wooden sliding door that separates the front hall from the living room. It's always open, so of course a mouse would think it's a good hiding spot. In the morning I looked under the door and pulled out the little paper it had used to make a nest.
At first I used the long tail of one of A's dinosaurs to hook out the paper, but John thought that was gross, since A puts the dinos in his mouth, etc. Yuck, right. So I washed off Allosaurus and gave it back to A.
Now what? Will the mouse move on now that the nest is gone? The house is a hundred years old so we have a lot of nooks and crannies. Will we have to get a cat? I can't imagine another animal in this house. Maybe we can train Queets and Skeena to mouse hunt. They already know how to point birds, so mice should be easy, right?
