You can really tell that fall is here in northern Minnesota and winter is fast approaching, when the mice try to over-run the house!
Well, as you can see here the mouse (or mice as it turns out) were very industrious over the night tearing into the toilet paper roll.
I decided to leave it in place there on the quilt rack and put out a trap with peanut butter on it to use as bait.
Next day, sure enough I caught my mouse! Knowing that when there’s one mouse, there are sure to be more, I decided to leave it up for several days.
And each day now for the last three, I’ve gotten another mouse. Ick! I sure do miss my old, “Don Gatto,” the black and white male cat we had, he was terrific at keeping these little critters at bay.
