My latest pastime… trying to catch a mouse. No, I have not become insane. No, I am not a cat.
This mouse has been in the house for a few days now, well weeks actually. We bought a mousetrap. It hasn’t worked so far. We’ve cleaned up all the junk on the floor. ( This process usually involves moving all the junk to a higher level 😉 ) The mouse just moves to another room. It started out with the kitchen, moved on to my room, and then moved to my sister’s room. So today I decided, Enough is enough, Time to catch it with my bare hands. I started taking all the shelves apart. It ran up the Electric Iron’s power cord onto the window sill. I caught it, it slipped out of my hands and hid under the bookcase. I poked it with a scale, it ran up the Electric Iron’s power cord onto the window sill. I caught it, it slipped out of my hands and hid under the bookcase.Repeat performance twice. Then it climbs up the leg of the cot, and jumps towards the door. I had locked it so it couldn’t run away. It hid behind some plastic bags, I flushed it out. I caught it again, It slipped out of my hands again. Then it finally managed to squeeze under the door and get out. My sister’s room looks like it’s been demolished by a monster truck. 😈
The mouse is actually pretty cute. It has pink ears, and is small and goes around the place sniffing at everything. It’s also very soft. I wonder if I could keep it as a pet.
