OUT! OUT! DAMN MOUSE!

EEEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKK! There's a mouse in my classroom! After the initial screams.....I'm teaching the class standing on a chair. My students think it's hysterical.

Reminded me of a funny mouse story. My hubby always hated it when I screamed when I saw a mouse. He said I scared him worse than the mouse! lol So, one night while everyone was sleeping, I got up to go to the bathroom. I think I was trying to pee with my eyes closed so I wouldn't wake up too much. But I kept hearing this strange noise........

scurry,scurry,scurry......THUNK!
scurry,scurry,scurry......THUNK!


And I looked down into the bathtub....and there was a little mouse trying his darndest to get out! He'd scamper up the curved side of the tub and just THUNK right back to the bottom.....but he wasn't giving up! I bit my lips to keep from screaming and went into the bedroom to wake up my husband.
"If you don't get up right now and kill that mouse, I'm going to start screaming", I said.

So, he got up while I jumped into the middle of the bed and pulled all the covers up so that darn mouse couldn't get loose and run up the bed sheets! I could hear him looking for something to catch that mouse with. He went into the kitchen twice....and I could only imagine what tools he was using. He just couldn't catch the thing in that bathtub.....it was too slippery.

Finally with a broom to trap the mouse, and pliers to pick it up he was able to grab it. I could hear the mouse scream.......EEEK! EEEK! EEEK! It made my blood curdle...and I had to bit the pillow to keep from screaming.

And then I heard the toilet flush.......and soon after, hysterical laughing out of my hubby. I hid under the covers....sure that little thing got away and was looking for me.


Turns out that mice can swim......and that little thing swam for his little life for all he was worth. It took about six flushes to finally get him down the toilet.

And then I cried.....poor little mouse!


Yeah....I know....men, give up....you'll never figure us women out!

With us, up here, we go through an occasional exercise (or is it EXORCISE?) whenever Mrs. Prag spots a spider crawling somewhere. She'll literally freak, even if it's so small that I have to squint to see it as I do my Prince Valiant routine with a paper towel..!

I can only imagine what I would do if I was to awaken in the middle of the night...stumble into the bathroom...and see a full-grown, silver-back gorilla sitting on the toilet..!

My "mouse" story ... hummm....

My husband had taken me to the mountains for a weekend holiday and we had the best time away from NYC. Upon return, I noticed that my upstairs neighbors had vacated the apt.
Two days later ... the "mice" were scurring all over my place! We plastered, steelwooled holes, set traps ... and I went to the "Super" several times to get the exterminator.
Finally, with no help from the Super... I started catching those little "meecies" and I'd bag them and take them to the SUPER's door and hang them on the doorhandle.
The Super never came to me ... but did send someone a week later.
Total mice killed in 20 days = 17.
I learned to double bag and then a third to keep them quiet.

They are quiet funny when drunk on peanutbutter and some poison.
I really wanted them to go someplace else tho.
I detest killing things.
But I will, if it comes between them and me and my survival mood.

warm huggies 2ya
from one fraddie cat to another .... Squeek!

we have a mouse problem at home; we have caught lots of them in humane traps and driven them far away from our house. now there is only one left, but it is a big adult one, too big for the trap, and we had to throw the trap away, cos a mouse gnawed it's way out of it on the last time we set the trap .... gnawed right thru the plastic! we have spoken about getting a mole snake to eat the mice, cos traps aren't working and i am allergic to cats, and have a cat phobia, but gaeb doesn't like the idea of even a non-poisonous snake around kids, cos he says they can still give a nasty bite. so, at this point, dunno what the hell to do...

rotflmfao ............OMG too funny, sounds like the time I went over to a friends house and he had a mouse in the kitchen I didn't know about. I was out there late at night getting something to drink and I scared the mouse and he scurried across my foot. I did not scream! But I did go upstairs and back to bed and tell him that he might wanna deal with the mouse sometime that week, as I don't think it would be easy for my heart to handle another episoide like that.

I can't do it! I can't kill a mouse for simply being there. I know how destructive they are and that they can produce a slew of babies - but I just can't kill like that.

We used to have mice in our office and I brought in a trap/cage and would go set them free in a field anytime one was caught. I'm an animal freak though - even bugs and wierd critters - I love them all and would set them free. Except - Black Widows and ants. Even killing the ants I have guilt sometimes. I never feel guilty about a killing a Black Widown though I suppose I should.

That is too funny! It made me remember when I was visiting my sister whose cat would bring mice in and play them. Anyways one night I had slept on the couch. The next morning when I was folding the blankets a mouse fell out. I screamed so loud that my brother-in-law came running in the house from the garage, because he thought somebody broke in. I don't know if the mouse was there all night or the cat had brought it in that morning!

Get a cat, or a small dog. Just make sure that they don't catch mice outside and bring them in to play with, like some do.

Inspect your house for mouse entrances, and plug them with something inorganic and hard to chew, like mortar or steel wool. Sheet rock isn't tough enough. I wound up putting some cement-based siding on selected areas of garage wall where mice were getting through into the house itself. The tack and feed room has the cement siding panels on both outside and inside faces of the walls, and is doing pretty well so far.

Be thankful it wasn't a pack rat...I've had to deal with those a couple of times. They are much faster than mice & love to steal items!

My dog loves catching them, it's a game with him to find & catch them (he doesn't eat them); same with my previous dog.

When I had cats, they just looked at it & played with it...the dog always had other plans.

I had a mouse move in once, so i moved out.... [so terrified am i, that i actually went back home to stay with my mother until said problem was taken care of] know thinking back on it, I'm not sure which is the scariest thought ...lol

The humane traps where set, but my mouse, oh no, way to clever to be caught out that way ....

Poison they told me, was my next option, i didn't want to, but i was living with my mother, i had to do something, and so i agreed, but my mouse, oh no, not once did he take a nibble ....

Finally, my brother laid traps, with chocolate as the bait, two days passed and nothing, and then on the morning of the third day, i walked in to find my mouse caught in the trap, dead, and then my hysterical cry's were due to the fact, that i had killed this beautiful little critter, he looked so small.... and i felt like such a shit ....

I cried for two days ....

So, i have to agree with your husband, there is no pleasing us women ...

I don't give a s--- how you get rid of them just get rid of them.

One night I woke hubby up because one came in our bed room I to was in the middle of the bed screaming. He got a broom and tried to swat it enough to startle it and do away with it however I did not care as long as it was gone. Mind you he was in his undies chasing a mouse around with the broom. He bent over to swat it one way and I chose to run out the door. Well he raised up and hit his head on the door knob and for some reason I went historical in laughter watching him holding a broom in one hand and his head with the other why the little mouse ran out the door. He was so ticked off at me he said I don't care if they bring a whole family in to sleep with me he will never get up again to Chase a damn mouse LOl. Of corse he has where use to live Thank goodness I have not seen any here yet UGGGGGGG

I have a critter story for you. in 1970 I was stationed on a Navy base in the West Indies where I lived in the barracks with 25 or 30 other guys. My fiance sent me a care package just before Christmas. In the package was a HUGE candy cane, I mean the sucker must have weighed 2 or 3 pounds. I put the candy cane, still wrapped in it's plastic wrap, in the top of my locker in the barracks. Several days later a couple of the other guys and I decided that we would break the big candy cane up into smaller pieces and everyone would get a chunk. I took the thing out of the locker and immediately noticed that the bottom of the candy cane had been attacked by little teeth. That put an immediate end to the candy cane idea.

I put the candy in a big metal can and went down and talked to the chief master-at-arms, the man responsible for running the barracks. He had one of his staff come up an set a couple of traps. They checked the traps regularly for several days and had absolutely no success. One morning, after a long mid-watch I had an idea. I took a big hammer, broke the candy cane into small pieces and put them back in the can. I went and collected the traps that had been set and I removed the bait... cheese, how original. I cleaned the traps, baited them with a small chunk of the candy cane and reset them. Later that day, as I was in my bed asleep, I was awoken by the sound of a trap being sprung. I got up and took a look at the trap... there was one of the little candy bandits, he (or she) had sampled their last candy cane.

I kept those traps baited with the candy cane for several weeks. The sound of the snapping trap was heard quite frequently and we had a LONG string of confirmed kills. The successful "pest elimination events" eventually stopped... either the mice moved on to better hunting grounds or they became more discriminating in the dietary habits. I eventually threw what remained of the candy cane away. By the way, the master-at-arms posted new rules... no food in the barracks unless it was stored in metal containers.

I never did get a single bite of that huge candy cane. I'm sure I told my fiance about the debacle but I don't remember her ever sending a replacement... or any cookies or other kind of goodies. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you...

I don't have a lot of sympathy for the mice... particularly inside a place where people live. Throughout history they are known to have been the carriers of disease and they certainly have very poor sanitation habits... evidenced by the little black remnants they leave behind. However, having read the story of the drowning mouse I don't think I could ever kill one in that manner. I'd just buy me a candy cane and break it up for use as bait.

It was after midnight. I was fast asleep. The wife was watching the end of a show on TV. Suddenly, I was awakened from my dreams loud shriek. I raced to the living room in all my glory (I sleep nude) holding a broom handle I grabbed on the way. Suddenly she screamed again, "MOUSE!!!" I saw it on the desk. I grabbed the trash can, knocked the mouse into the can, and rushed outside, and put it in the large garbage can and plopped a lid on it figuring to get rid of it in the morning. I walked back in the house, assured her that it was taken care of, and toddled back to bed. The next morning, I checked my email. Damn, its hard to use those little arrows to control the computer. I wish I had my mouse back.

Something....do you have a "critter" story to share with me?

That's the story of my life. When will you be free to be a captive?

I’d want to get to know you better, if I weren’t afraid of what critters might turn up.

Dead critters are less dead than if they’d never crittered anywhere (but may not realize it).

My time is far too valuable for me to spend any of it trying to entertain critters.

Awwwww . . . poor little mousey!! I don't understand why people are afraid of them, I think they're adorable (I've been known for "abducting" the lab mice out of science class and setting them free).

Actually, mousies aren't such great swimmers. My dad has horses, and unfortunately the mice in the feed barn are a real pain and health hazard. The best "trap" is to put a bucket of water just far enough from a bale of hay so that when they attempt to get a drink they fall in. So my little girl and I would be visiting, and there's my dad . . . giving the mice "swimming lessons" and then giving them "flying lessons."
