Ok, all you country mamas, I'm gonna go a little 'city girl' on ya... We just moved from the city to 50 acres in the middle of nowhere in April! Luckily the house is well sealed, and there are those silent 'mouse repellers' plugged into the basement outlets....and they seem to have been working well. But last night we had a mouse!!!!! ewwww In my kitchen!!! double ewwww! I really do NOT want to resort to traps.. (not because I'm worried about cruelty, but because that means I'd have to find and then touch a dead mouse!)
Do those plug in mouse repellers really work? Should I consider getting more of them? Are there other ways to prevent mice from getting in.
In all reality 1 mouse in almost 4 months is NOT a big deal, and it hasn't interfered with food in our cupboards etc. Also we had a busy day of coming in and out a lot, so it may have just walked right in the door.... I can't say for sure, but I did not sleep very well last night. WTH am I gonna do when it gets cold out and they start flocking indoors for warmth?!?! HELP!
Thanks for the tips! We do have 1 cat, she lives indoors, but goes outside during the day... We do have a lot of larger predators in the area and live off of a major hwy. I am not interested in getting any more cats indoors, and would be worried about losing outdoor ones to the above mentioned fates...
Our kitty spent so long inside our apartment that I don't know if she just needs more time, or if she's really useless, but she saw the mouse in the kitchen, cornered it and just wanted to play... She clearly had no intention to kill!
There have been no other signs of a mouse indoors, so here's hoping it ran outside never to return... (not exactly realistic I know, but just go with it for my sake!)
