SNAP!

Two less mice in my house.

And don’t y’all go all whiny on me about how sticky traps are not as cruel as good old-fashioned mouse traps. Sticky traps have to be the cruelest things I have ever seen.

At least with the old traps they die fast. Mice carry diseases and fleas. I do not need them in my house. They chew on wires causing fire hazards.

“Oh catch them and let them go outside” Nope, because five minutes later they’re back in my house.

We actually tested it once by marking a mouse caught by one of our past cats, we found her playing with it and had not as yet injured it. We let it go it go in the cemetery. The same night, the cat caught the mouse again, killed it,  and presented it to me in our kitchen.

We don’t have cats now, we have bull terriers who ignore the mice even when one brazenly ran under the old one’s feet.

Two down and goodness knows how many to go…
