We've had a mouse problem in our kitchen of late (we hear its a bit of a problem in our area but that doesn't make me feel a lot better). I was sitting in the kitchen working on the laptop the other day and one was climbing down the corner of the built in kitchen cupboard - what the hell was it clinging on to?? Anyway, they appear to be defying gravity, disappearing into tin air and hiding inside the smallest of cavities. It sounds like a job for a wee cheetie, and in the absence of a cat, perhaps a very enthusiastic cocker spaniel called Toby.
Since then, the mice seem to be disinclined to swarm, but we have seen one or two and have left a few traps out. And Toby narrowly missed one the other night. But all we are seeing now is the little parcels they leave here and there in the morning. Not what I like to see when I'm making breakfast.
