I mean, "Mouse!"
Sitting here catching up on blog reading last night, in my peripheral vision, I see something skitter in to the pantry in the kitchen.
I thought I was imagining things until the cat went into full predator stalking mode and parked herself at the pantry door.
The cat has the attention span of a fish. There wasn't much hope of her catching it while we were at work today.
So I've got a mousetrap set in the pantry with the door closed so current dog and half-wit cat don't get their nose snapped.
I remember, from when I was a wee lad, my Dad using sugar coated gum drops for bait. I'd heard peanut butter works well, so I'm trying that.
Better ideas will be most welcome.
