A mouse tail (tale)

Mice suck, and I have had hamsters galore...ok, let me tell you a mouse story.

It was Friday, which is garbage day for us and all our garbage was out. We woke up in the morning and I naturally came to the computer first...because, really, who can enjoy breakfast without checking the computer first? Princess and Cutie Pie went in the kitchen to get breakfast and came running out screaming...So, I asked them what the problem was and they said there was a mouse in the cupboard. I said, leave it till daddy got home...I didn't care. They said, it was still moving. Hm, so I peeked in and had a look.The mouse had got caught in the trap, and wiggled the trap halfway out of the cupboard, so it was hanging, half in half out. I put on my sons winter boots, and got a snow shovel and went into the kitchen, looked at it...and it's tail was still twitching and hanging out of the cupboard...I leaned forward and put the shovel under the cupboard and opened the door so the trap fell in the shovel, and ran to the front door where I had Mr. Hockey hold open a garbage bag...

Yeah, that was gross...


  1. Hi Ruth! I've finally posted again!
    It's funny, I don't mind bugs or spiders but show me amouse and I scream! You did very well disposing of it!

  2. This is exactly why I am so thankful we have cats!

    You're a brave, brave lady.
