I suspect my cats bring mice into my house to demonstrate their prowess at catching them.

Glad you got it sorted *g*

THE KITTEHS ARE SO FIRED!!! THE OLD DECREPIT ONE IS THE ONLY ONE THAT EVEN SNIFFED IT!!!!

(And then I felt bad to getting The Boy to pick up each catch and "sic" them on the mouse, for it was a BABY, J!!! A BABY PINK MOUSIE ALL SHIVERS AND FLUFF!!!)

OH NO! I was afraid it was all tiny and cute!

Oh mousie!

Still, it should not come into the House of Stoney, no!

Can it be trapped and set out in some field or other?

IT IS SAFE!! I got it in some evergreens in my garden where there is food for animals and water for them, too, and APPARENTLY my cats are not into murder and mayhem today.

(It was so wee! Like, a KNUCKLE in size.) <-- Um, I clearly thought it was larger when I screamed like a baby and jumped up onto the furniture, ahem.

Jan. 3rd, 2007 09:25 pm (UTC)
AWWWWWW, so WEE!

Now it can grow up big and strong, and then return to terrorize you FOR REALS!

Just kidding. It will never, ever come back -- it will only meet Mrs. Mouse of its dreams, have a nice brood of baby mousies, and travel Texas having wonderful adventures!

WHAT HAVE I DONE?!??

Oh my gosh, what if it's a newly arrived mouse from Mexico, and this is "An American Tale 4: The Stoneyland Adventure?" And I interrupted filming?!?

I wish mine would catch it! Except, not now that I've seen it's a wee baby and all shivers and fear.

My cats are TEWTALLY FIRED!

*shudders*

Hopefully you have cats that'll actually kill the mouse instead of playing with it.
stoney321
Jan. 3rd, 2007 09:21 pm (UTC)
THEY ARE DOING NOTHING. Nothing! *spits*

(but it's all wee small and shivery, so we scooped it in a dust pan - AS I GLARED AT MY ANIMALS - and put it in some shrubbery.)

At least your cats are just ignoring it. My sister's dog hid from the mouse they had last year. Of course, they have very smart mice that have been outsmarting my uncle and hiding the poison he puts out for the last year. I'm not kidding here, he puts poison out once a week, comes to check it and it's empty. But a couple months ago he found a gas cap under one of the cars filled with the poison pellets.

OH MY GOSH, THE RATS FROM NIMH LIVE UNDER THE CAR!!!!

Dun hurt Mrs. Frisby!

:) My uncle, of course, doesn't find it nearly as amusing as the rest of us that mice are outsmarting him...and my sister and cousin aren't thrilled with sharing their home with frighteningly smart mice. However, they seem to have reached an agreement with the mice. The mice stay out of sight and they stop hiring exterminators to kill them.

OMG, I thought I was the only one! I got out a pair of my boots and the TOES WERE FILLED WITH MOUSE POISON!!

Nope. It's making my uncle crazy. He has an old Camero in there that he restored and I'm pretty sure if they damage that car in anyway he will find them and personally force the poison down their little throats though. He REALLY loves his car.

I had a mouse in my basement a couple of years ago. My solution was that tv watching was over for the evening. Yes, I am a chicken. And since I never saw it again, presumably it left. Ot perhaps it's been breeding in my laundry room.

Mice should stay where they belong!
stoney321
Jan. 3rd, 2007 09:50 pm (UTC)
YES THEY SHOULD! I mean, I have a nice, toasty warm compost heap that's usually got a family or three in it, plus some bunnies. Safe from the hawks and Darthanne.

YOU DUN NEED MY HOUSE, zomg.

I am all self-congratulatory, at the moment, for the NO MICE thing. I suspect it may be that the plague of rats the neighborhood went through earlier this year killed the house mice right off, but we also seem to be rat-free now, so, YAY! (Tacoma Rail was deadheading "empty" grain cars on the siding that runs through my BIL's place, the park in between, and along my southern border)

I hates them rodents, I do.

Julia, had something else to say but am unfortunately forgetful today

OH! The railroad rats in my BIL's grainery have attracted mink- which has got to be the most de luxe ultra rodent control animals ever.
stoney321
Jan. 3rd, 2007 10:14 pm (UTC)
Holy smokes!! Throw some chinchillas in there, and you're living on Park Place! But... without the rodents on hangars. :D
julia_here
Jan. 3rd, 2007 10:32 pm (UTC)
Chinchillas are one of the things that Don't Do in this climate- they mildew, like pronghorns, and catch pneumonia, like rattlesnakes.The mink, on the other hand, are natives; I knew two people who put themselves through college trapping mink within five miles of where I am now, and as there's a ban on leg-hold traps now the minks are free to roam and reproduce.

I really need to go take photos of the undeveloped bits of the neighborhood- especially down close to McAllister Springs, where there's old-growth fir and where I once saw a spotted owl.

Julia, there's a strip of land which is unbuildable by reason of being nearly vertical, entirely wet, and composed of clay and gravel. Thanks be to the Vashon Glaciation.

haha, yes, that's my Darthanne, all altruistic. :D

I am so totally laughing at you. Just so's you know.

We have herds of mice (that's with Butthead killing two a week). Ah, farm life. Cheeky little bastards. So cute they make me feel guilty for wishing them dead...

Recently, we found (and trapped) two of them living in one of our cars.

I wrote this some time ago, but thought it might cheer you up in your perilous circumstances!

NEVER EVER TELL by Lilachigh

A monster too far

He heard her piercing scream as he passed the house. He was on his way back from town to Xander’s grotty basement. Well, to be fair, he’d been passing to and fro from basement to town and back again for the past three hours, but this time he was in the right place at the right time.

The scream rang out again. He covered the ground from sidewalk to front door in a split second, opened it and then was flung backwards by the magical barrier.

“Buffy!” he roared. “Slayer!”

“Oh god, not you! Go away, Spike. Or better still, go and find Xander!”

He stared desperately inside the house, but couldn’t spot her. “What’s the matter? You screamed. Let me in.”

There was a long pause, then, “Oh god it moved! OK, OK, you can come in, Spike.”

The barrier vanished and he hurtled inside then slid to a halt. She was standing on the kitchen table, grasping a stake in each hand. Her great green eyes were wide and scared, the blonde hair dishevelled. She was wearing a very short skirt and Spike felt himself stirring uncontrollably at the sight of all that tanned flesh so close to his eyes.

“Don’t just stand there, stupid vampire. Kill it!” she snapped.

Spike roared into game face - stared around, fists clenched, ready to dismember, disembowel, cause bloody havoc – then hesitated, bewildered. Water was dripping in the sink, there was the signs of a salad being cut up on the work surface, a cabinet was open and packets of rice and pasta had tumbled, but apart from that - nothing. No demon, no vamp, nothing.

“What - where is it?”

Buffy swung round and glared at him. “Over there, under the chair. It - it came out of the cabinet. Just - just get rid of it. Kill it. Eat it. Just - just ” She waved the stakes dramatically in the air. “And if you ever, ever mention this to anyone, ever, I will turn you to dust. That I promise!”

Spike bit his lip so hard that he could feel his own blood trickling into his mouth. But he kept a straight face and, leather coat swinging, went into battle. He flung the chair aside and with vampire speed, picked up the mouse and deposited it outside the back door with a flourish!

Oh god, mouse trauma. It's only a couple of years since I caught one in my previous flat. Which had no outside space and was on a main road and over a lot of restaurants so I couldn't let it go and I have no cat so...I drowned it. Couldn't squish it. Ran water through a colander into the saucepan where it was trapped and left it alone for ages. And then had to dispose of dripping mouse corpse. Mouse-killing flashbacks haunt me still. But it was my flat, dammit, I didn't sign up for rodent housemates. *Feel guilty all the same*

Also very glad to see you can get hold of This Life +10. I need someone to share the shock at how much older they look. Not that they look bad now, just I still think of them as a few years older than Student Me, when I watched the originals - even though most of the actors have been on film/TV plenty since. So it's OK to see Daniela Nardini or Andrew Lincoln growing up, but not Anna and Egg, somehow. It's possible I am in denial here.

OK, so we used to keep the dog food outside, and mice would get into it, and once we opened up the bag and there was a mouse inside, which was way better than the time there was a cockroach inside, and now we keep it in an airtight container so no small creatures of any sort can mooch off it BUT while the free dog food buffet was on, there were mice, and although we did not know it, they chewed into the box with the Christmas decorations and set up shop in the creche, so when we pulled the creche out of storage that year it had been turned into a deluxe mouse condo, and although we tried cleaning it with bleach that didn't really work and we had to throw it away but you have not lived until you've been able to say "I can't talk now, Mom, I'm bleaching the Baby Jesus."

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
