Ew! Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!

It’s so gross.

OMG, even *I* think it’s gross.

You would be amazed at how clean my kitchen is.  This is because (ewwwww!) we have a mouse.  (ewwww!)  

I miss having cats.  When I had cats, we never got mice no matter how much food we left around.  The cat smell would keep the mice away.  But now, we don’t have cats.  I miss my cat Katie.  She was the cat of my heart, and when she died, I really didn’t want another cat.  This is selfish of me, I know, but the truth is, it’s all I can do to keep up with the critters I’ve got.  I can’t take care of anyone else.  

Including a g-ddamn @*!(@*!!! mouse!  Ewwwww!

It was the hurricane.  I spotted it during the hurricane, and we figured the rain drove it indoors.  The Bishop promised to call the landlord to come and poison it with toxic poisonous poisons that would kill it dead dead dead and did I mention DEAD.  The landlord puts the toxic poisonous poisons OUTSIDE where the mice come in and then they die dead on their way into the house, which is rather brilliant and also doesn’t involve poisons out where Baby Peanut could easily eat them.  Although hopefully they don’t die in my walls.  But the Bishop only wanted to call the landlord if we saw it after the hurricane because, Bishop reasoned, maybe the mouse was inside because of the hurricane and after the hurricane it would go back where it came from because it would know, somehow, that we were going to have the landlord kill it dead dead dead with toxic poisonous poisons.  

But then the Bishop left a bowl of oatmeal out on the counter and when we came home and ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!

And Baby Peanut is crawling on the ground!  And he puts everything in his mouth!  And now I’m afraid to let him crawl around down there so mostly I clean the floor by putting anti-bacterial wipes under my feet and skating all over it and if that does not sanitize my floor and kill mouse germs I DO NOT WANT TO KNOW SO DON’T TELL ME.

    If it is any consolation, my MIL says that EVERYONE in her town (herself included) gets mice in the fall. And if she doesn’t seal her cereals and cracker boxes carefully? Make that ALL YEAR LONG. Granted, she lives on a farm, but still. Mouse shit is mouse shit no matter where you live.

    I know she has Wiglet, and while he certainly does his part to put a serious dent in the Mount Vernon mouse population, he is only one cat. he tries, though. Funny dinner conversation last winter when we were visiting:

    Me, as I watch Wiglet try to wiggle his raccoon-ass into one of my MIL’s lower cupboards: “You know, my mom used to have a cat who did that. She kept his food on the top shelf of a cabinet. we’d go to open the door and there he’d be, munching away. Only, I don’t know why Wiglet is doing that. There is ‘t any cat food in there.”

    Dear hubby and BIL: “Oh, there’s cat food in there.”

    Every so often, someone new moves to her area, and they get mice but are too embarrassed to tell anyone. Then the noobs find out that everyone has them. So there. So gross…

      Oh, I know it happens, and we live in the woods, but they went away for a while after the landlord poisoned their entrances with toxic poisonous poisons but I guess they’re back. Mostly I worry about Charlie because he is crawling around and putting things in his mouth.
