We have a mouse in our garage. He is a pretty cute little guy and if we thought he was an orphan we would probably just let him stay for a while. Doc, who I have named head mouse rustler around here, doesn't have the heart to do anything like try to catch him in a trap.
The problem is that it is likely that he has a family somewhere close and if we let this little guy stay and play they will all probably want to move in and we will just have one big mouse party in our garage.
Another problem is that our dog, Dodger, goes outside through a dog door from the utility room to the garage and another dog door from the garage to outside. That means anything we put in the garage to catch or
kill the mouse might also have a chance of catching our nosy dog.
I'm sure Doc will be shopping tomorrow for whatever kind of humane, dog safe, mouse rustling equipment he can find. In the meantime, I just hope that I don't get up in the morning to find a big 'ol mouse party going on in my garage.
