Is it bad...

That I'm actually starting to like the little mouse in my house? He doesn't get into the food, he always relieves himself in the same spot which makes it super easy to clean up after him, and when I'm cooking, he'll scamper up and watch me. I've set out 6 sticky traps, two no-touch snap traps, and 6 regular Victor's snap traps, all baited with peanut butter, and he's evaded all of them and run off with a full stomach. 

I'm strongly considering getting some live traps and getting rid of the kill traps. In my book, he's earned the right to live. I've been outsmarted at every turn by a itty bitty little field mouse, and I'm impressed.

Well, one of my totem animals is a mouse. Maybe that has something to do with it.
