Of Mouse & Man.

Oh bugger.

I've got a mouse in my house.

It's a very cocky rodent and doesn't seem to mind scurrying righy past me when the lights are on. Oh well, I guess I'll have to buy one of those "catch them alive" mousetraps and release it near the home of someone I don't like.

You've got mice? I've always wanted one of those little holes in the wall with the little varmints scooting in and out and giving lip to the cat.

"You've got mice?"

Just one mouse I think.

I had some. I went for the old-fashioned death traps. One caught a mouse, but it only - let's say - injured it. The injured mouse was then running (ish) around the kitchen as tried to catch it in a mug. Finally I trapped it in the sink, full of water. So I now have a disabled drowning mouse. I manangeed to get it into a box, where it made such a fuss in a panic I thre it outside, where it landed on the flat below's table, where they were sat as it was August. I left quickly afterwards.

Yeah that's why I want to catch them alive. The last tume I had to use the traditional traps years ago it squashed the skull of the mouse and was really quite unpleasant.

"it landed on the flat below's table, where they were sat as it was August. "

Given that they don't know about what led up to that they must have incredible stories about the weirdo who used to through mice at them as they having dinner.

It's never 'just one mouse'...
