Help!

Police

I am stranded in my bedroom while a teeny little mouse runs riot downstairs.

There I was minding my own business, feasting on a plateful of serrano and salami, and worrying about little Ray on The X-Factor, when out the corner of my eye I saw a titchy witchy little field mouse run behind the book case. I swear I nearly choked.

So in a very girly fashion I put in a distress call to John from next door but one, who came running in, armed himself with Finleys light sabre and danced about on tip toe, plainly more scared than I will ever be.  So I stood on the sofa crying laughing while he performed a variety of impressive ninja style antics on a piece of string that had got caught in the bottom of his jeans, and then he did a whole lot of furniture removal, emptied a bell jar full of linen, set up a makeshift trap and abandoned me to deal with the little critter all on my lonesome.

It’s not like I’m scared. I just don’t want anything uninvited crawling around under my duvet. Do mice climb stairs? Will he make a nest in my frizzy hair? Has he brought Mummy Mouse, Brother Mouse and all his friends from the mouse pub with him? Or has the little blighter run away from home and discovered the delights of my little house and the odd abandoned raisin? Will I have to set a place for him at the table??

Tell a lie. I’m not scared,  I’m  frightened out of my wits. I blame the christmas tree. I bet I carried the little nightmare in myself.

Housekeepers, the time has come:  I need to borrow a husband. Please send a big, burly one round as soon as possible or it will have to be gin and valium to see me throught the night.

Somebody knock me out.

    Oh no! Just shut the bedroom door and roll up a towel and push it under the door to block any gap. At least it's not a spider – that is the very very worst thing!

    Oh you poor thing. I remember when a mouse gnawed away in the kitchen wall way up high in the corner of the ceiling. I woke up one morning to find a hole the size of a quarter and wondering what it was. Well it turned out to be a field mouse and my husband made the most ingenious mouse trap. It actually caught the mouse and he let it go in the neighboring farmer’s field. He did come back a second time but I made sure he brought him to a farer field from our home. I wish I could help you and I’d send my husband over. If you like I’ll send you a pic of the trap he made which works a 100% all of the time. Maybe you can get one done by your neighbor and get them to transport the furry creature away.

    My mother (a very kindly small woman) used to feed wild mice from her hand, by the fire in bygone times, so they can be quite an addition.
    I do have a husband who can help with the wee beggars but there is no way of knowing where he has got to by now (the mouse not my husband!)

    Don't you put out mouse poison? Living in the country, surrounded by corn fields we have it out year around…it is a must here! But our cat does wonders too!

    A kitty is what you need to keep those critters away, especially if you truly despise them so much. If you have critters, a kitty can earn their keep for much less trouble than a husband.
