Worthless Cat!

I've been seeing some tell-tale signs that I have an unwanted critter in my house...

Just a few minutes ago, I let out quite a shriek when I opened a cabinet and saw the back end of a medium- to large-sized mouse turn tail and run. Thankfully it didn't get out, but I wonder just how did it get in?!? Worthless cat...

Tuesday update: Billy set two peanut butter-laced traps when he got home from work (and Home Depot). Five minutes later, we heard a snap. Got one! I didn't look at it but Billy said the tail was as long as I said it was, though the mouse was smaller than I thought.

He checked the other trap this morning and there was mouse #2. He's going to set a few more traps this afternoon. I wonder how many there are... I'm scared to open any cabinets now!


Wednesday update: Things were looking up this morning. Billy checked the trap he set out yesterday afternoon and it hadn't been sprung. Then Caleb came running and screaming into the living room a few minutes ago, saying he saw a mouse run from the kitchen into the playroom and under the bookshelf. Great!

No, that's not like her at all. She would most likely run and hide under my bed!
