Mouse hunt in granny pants

I was almost asleep... You know, right at that point were you feel your entire body come at ease...

With a sudden shock i realise there is somebody besides MY BED! And no I'm not dreaming and YES i should be all alone. O my gosh, there is somebody besides my bed...


And then realizing all in a couple of seconds, I'm defiantly not dreaming, i defiantly should start wearing granny pants and pj's (if there would be a crazy man besides my bed, it's less attracting to wear granny pants, i hope) and i defiantly hear something creepy but it's not a man! I turn over to turn on the light and there on my dresser is see a tiny mouse playing hide and seek with my clothes.

Ok, freak out time has officially started, although it's not a scary man but a little tiny mouse.

So I'm watching this little bastard running over my dresser back and forth, climbing up and down and trying to sneak under my bed, i don't think so buddy!  So I'm trying to think of a strategy to catch this little intruder. As a real girl supposed to do, i call my husband and tell him we have a little problem in the bedroom, and ask him if we have some traps. Turned out we did, which is a good thing but that meant me getting out of bed and putting on something, which is a bad thing.

EVERYBODY knows if you have monsters in your bedroom, you stay IN BED! That way they can't catch/grab or attack you...

So after some serious consideration i got out of bed, put on some granny pants and got the mouse trap. We had a little bit of left over sausage and i figured my little mouse would like that. So i set the trap, used some sausage as bait, crawled into bed and waited...

And oh my gosh, two feet away (maybe four feet, but it felt really close) comes my little mouse, so cute, and headed right for my trap!

Haha, got you you little bastard...


At the same time i was hoping i would catch him, i was also hoping that that trap thing would snap really fast so he won't feel nothing, AND thinking that i really can't watch this because it is so mean!

The little mouse grabs my sausage and takes off to a safe place underneath the dresser. No snapping of the trap, no me freaking out about killing a little, really cute, mouse. Just utter amazement. That little bastard stole my sausage!

After Bastiaan got home we tried to catch him but no luck (which wasn't a surprise, he just had lunch) and we set some more traps the next day but so far we haven't caught him yet.

Hopefully he went to the neighbors, maybe he can score some more sausage there, cause he's not getting it from me no more!

The best thing in the mouse trap in peanut butter they can't steal that. I usually hated to kill them but didn't want them either.

Love this story! It is funny how a little mouse can put a scare into us!

Jent said...

Thanks for the laugh!!!!! Right now we have a dead stinky mouse in our living room wall - better dead than alive but he really stinks!

Jeanette Levellie said...

Oh, how awful and funny at the same time. I prefer having cats; we never get a mouse in our house!

Blesssings of safety and mouselessness,

Thank you so much for you comment the other day! I've been looking around your blog this morning :)
I vote you pick Wyoming over Texas too, and if you happen to be in the central or eastern parts of the state during your visit I would love to show you around!

Let me tell you that if that unfortunate incident happened to me... you could hear my hysterical screaming all the way into your house. I would be in a home for the mentally instable right now, but as long as they have someone on staff to flat-iron my hair, I would be okay with that.
Thx for commenting on my blog! I love guests!!

ha ha ha ha! ok you need cats - lots and lots of house cats. and barn cats. heck cats of all shapes and sizes. i sleep with The Insane Cat Posse - no mice here, sister!

Umm, well, the granny pants seem to be a bit of an afterthought - just saying. The sausage seems to have been the perfect bait for this story!

If a mouse somehow found its way into our house the carnage that would ensue from the dogs and cats battling each other for the honor to dispatch it would be a sight to behold.

Too funny! :)

You always crack me up. Thanks for the kick start to my day. B

That is so funny. I really don't like mice. You asked me on my blog about the Simple Woman's daybook and was I going to do it everyday? I only make it about once a month. I forget most the time I have signed up for it and go on my merry way. It is nice when I have other things going on and I can't think of a post.
:)
I do hope you catch your mouse before he brings his family in to stay.

oooooh....eeeeek! You are so much braver than I. I would have NEVER in a zillion years gone back to bed:)

When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time
a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove me from that service?

Cheers!
