    Leave the poor buggers alone.

    Leave a small litter tray out and treat them with the respect they deserve.

    Respect? They're vermin that carry disease. And started the plague that wipped out a third of Europe! But ok, sure. We'll just leave them alone and show them a little respect.

    For the love of god, do not kill the mouse - I saved a mouse the other night via the gift of gardening gloves, cos the cat had it cornered on the patio. If you kill the mouse you will have exactly counteracted the amount of Good my selfless act put into the world.

    Get a non-lethal trap so when you catch it you can take it down the park or something.

    Interesting Mouse Rescue Fact: a deranged mouse will dangle from the finger of your gardening glove by its teeth when you try to release it.

    Mice are great aren't they? Apart from when someone tries to buy your affection by giving you dead ones.

    You have to hope this someone is your cat or you need to re-assess where your relationship is going.

    Nemco, have you thought about charging it rent? Or asking it help out with household chores?

    Wormie,

    Let me educate you:


    Mouse does not equal Rat.

    Have any of you seen Three Colours: Blue?

    Juliette Binnoche goes into her spare room to find a mouse - but it has all these tiny wee babies, so she shuts the door. And then she runs upstairs and borrows the neighbours cat and then sets it in the room and then shuts the door on the poor things. Then she goes and sees her friend and starts crying because she did such an evil thing.

    Remember, poor mousy is only trying to live just like you are. Don't kill it

    I don't want to kill it But if the little mousy thinks that its ok to give me salmonella what else can I do.

    OK!!!I'll try and buy one of those none killing mouse things and then release it into a park, so that it can get into someone elses house and wee and poo all over there house, that is so nice of me, me thinks!!!

    although if I use the glue board I can send the mouse to you CA for your bird to eat.

    A small lesson:

    Mice are just doing what they were made to do.

    Survive

    We survive, they surviive, every creature is built by God to survive.

    Therefore by killing it. You kind of forfeit your own right to survive.

    Sorry for being blunt.






    P.S. It was the fleas that carried the plague actually. And they were carried by almost anything, just mainly rats. So the plague was technically also carried by:

    Cats
    Dogs
    Birds
    Mice
    and humans

    And no, I'm not joking. It was possible for fleas to live on humans at the time. So it was partly our own fault for living in such squalor.

    Except I wasn't made by god. I was made by my parents. So I have the right to kill anything I want.

    I said I will try not to kill it! cause if I kill it I may end up with a mouse ghost and thats never fun.

    also if you could recommend and alternative way of getting rid of it without murder taking place, please let me know, I like the idea of keeping it away by smell.

    It's staying at my place without paying rent which is really unfair and it's eating my food without asking me first. its like being at university all over again!!!

    Try asking a pet store if they have "humane" mouse traps.

    Get a clean milk bottle or wide mouthed bottle... put a little bit of chocolate biscuit or chocolate in the bottle and rest the neck on a matchbox... mice can't resist chocolate and will climb in the bottle to get it but then cos of the slope can't get back out again... then just pick up the bottle and release in your garden :D DON'T kill them that's just cruel :mad:

    EDIT: don't put it out in the middle of the floor, put it up by the skirting board cos mice MAINLY run close to the sides of rooms and won't venture out into the middle of a room unless they REALLY have to.... :)

    I just saw your mouse ghost comment and have been laughing ever since. And no - I don't have wind.

    so are you saying that if you had wind it would be smelly enough to keep mice away??

    LOL

    No, it would resemble pink fluffy clouds.

    What I was saying, however, was that people who laugh for long periods of time, often have wind.

    It's a medical fact.
