two dumb mice, or all around the living room

Two mice just chased each other around and around the room--multiple times--while I was sitting here.

    I'm more impressed that you could sit there while mice are running around in your house!

    You know, a cat would solve a lot of your problems, and there are plenty at shelters who need a home! (hint, hint :)

    A cat would be good - even though you're not much of an animal person. I do like that idea better than the glue traps and the D-con. But it is your problem, and it sounds as if something needs to be done. If it wasn't a spoiled cat (like some we know) it really wouldn't be TOO much trouble...

    I'm guessing you animal lovers wouldn't be too happy if a person left a cat by itself for two weeks while they were on a trip...

    If your cat was an indoor/outdoor cat (with claws...never put a declawed cat outside), the you could leave a cat for up to two weeks as long as it had shelter, a self-feeder with food and plenty of water. It's not the best situation, but outside cats are EASY to care for.

    Totally up to you, but yes, better than glue traps and D-con. Cats—God's all natural, fur-covered, efficient little mouse traps. :)

    mouse traps: $5

    vet fees, shots, collar, bed, litter box, feeder, food, toys, bandaids for scratches: $500+

    She could use your bed. The mice are the toys and cat treats. The scratches are rarely deep enough to need bandaids...

    Vet fees for a healthy cat for a year: $35
    Food for a year: $86

    Somehow I knew the replies would involve the word priceless. ;)

    I also find time to myself in a scratch-free environment priceless.

    one last pro-cat comment:

    A cat would also serve as a mouse-deterrant.

    Okay, mouse saver...umm, do you know what cats do to mice? I don't think they save them.

    A snake is a good "mouse-deterrent", doesn't scratch and is much cleaner than a cat.
