For any of you who happen to follow me on Twitter, you're probably aware of the recent arrival of my new roommate - an invisible mouse. Earlier this week I ran into Belva (landlord) and while we were chatting in the hallway, I saw a mouse scurry across to a small crawl space on my side of the building. The next afternoon Pennie and I were snuggling and watching the most recent episode of Pretty Little Liars (no teasing!) when we heard a scratching noise coming from the kitchen. Pen bolted to investigate and I wasn't far behind. After searching for twenty-ish minutes, I gave up and let my kitty stand guard...
That night I spent far too long researching the most humane way to catch the little bugger. Well, here is what I ended up with:
Yep, that's a picnic basket, wood cutting board and toilet paper roll. I had hoped to entice the mouse with a glob of peanut butter, yet, after hours of waiting my basket is still empty.
One thing is for sure - there is NEVER a dull moment inside my apartment.
Have the loveliest of evenings!
