I killed the mamma!

So, I posted the other day about some mice having a sleepover at my house. Well, I caught 6 of them. 6 mice. Gag. Well, there haven't been anymore signs or caught mice since then. Till today. I was cleaning the linen closet, and I found a baby mouse. I caught it and let it go. The other one got away. I have literally been chasing him all day. Well, I caught the little booger tonight. I caught him with a bucket, a piece of yarn and some peanut butter. When I picked up the bucket, he gave me those sad little mousey eyes that said....."are you going to kill me like you killed my mommy?". So, he is now in the bucket with a lid......and a glob of peanut butter, a roll, and a Hershey kiss. And I feel bad!

That's what I'm going to do. I can handle the already dead ones. Living in the woods, I'm used to that. But I can't just kill it. :(

We have caught 2 mice within the last 9 months(been here a little over 2 years). We tried to do the humane traps but they didn't work so we had to go the not so nice way. The last one we caught, got into my pantry and up on a shelf. I made sure I pulled everything out and cleaned it and didn't put anything back on the floor(all that were there were empty lunch boxes and plastic bags). We still have 2 traps set because we live by an empty field so I'm sure we will have more but so far there aren't anymore.

When I first noticed the signs, I pulled everything from my pantry. Nothing had been messed with. I sure did go through two gallons of bleach that day bleaching everything. Lol. We live on twenty acres, at least 10 of it wooded, so I know its gonna happen. Still doesn't make it any better, though.

I have now moved my canned goods to the bottom shelf since it got into some of our cereal(which I threw out). I bleached the shelf also after I used soap and water. Hopefully it will be a while before another one comes. They make you feel gross!
