Update on the mouse...

Still haven't caught him. I've tried glue paper, sticky traps, snap traps, an Acme-style box trap, and even straight up pouncing at the little f*cker. My good-for-nothing ex/roommate refuses to buy live traps, and I can't afford an exterminator. 

What now? I'm tempted to just give up, name the little guy, keep him as a sort of pet, and get on with my life.

My parents have forbidden me from having pets in the house. I asked them about borrowing their cat, and I got a resounding NO.

Bring in a trap anyway. Hes your ex, it doesnt matter how he feels about killing mice.

Until I can find a job, my ex has all the money. So I can't buy a trap myself.

Buy a butterfly net and put the bait at the bottom of the net. When you see him run in, grab the net, toss his ass outside.

Now there's an idea.

This: 

but instead of tossing his ass outside, toss his ass under your ex's blankets. 

Then say "oh! you caught him! thanks hunny!"
