we have mice. i'm nearly positive of it.

just when i think we're getting the issues with this place sorted out. fanfuckingtastic.

now for the record, i have not actually seen the mice yet. but eric saw one run under the porch the other day. possible they weren't getting inside still, but this morning i found my bag of chocolate chips that had been closed up on the coffee table in the living room (you all just learned a lot about me there) gnawed away at so that there are shreddings on the table. that's pretty clear if you ask me. and our landlord said they never had problems with things like that. yeah right. time to go buy traps and steel wool.

after living in the row house in baltimore, i had really hoped to never have to deal with mice ever again. or roaches. if i find roaches here it'll be the last straw. but damn. not what i wanted to deal with first thing today.


eta: i went out and bought steel wool and the four biggest holes i could find are plugged with it now. though i'm sure there are more holes somewhere that i just haven't seen yet. and having found mouse droppings in the silverware drawer it makes me wonder what holes i'm not going to be able to get at to plug. i'm just so icked out. ewewew.

ugh, Mice. We had them (mostly in the winter when it was cold) in my old house. Not the thing you want to wake up to your cat chasing around at 3 am. Sympathies! Maybe the kitty had decided he likes to chew on chocolate chip bag plastic?

unfortunately, bastian has no interest in chewing on things, and there's no way he could have done that kind of damage with his gimpy teeth. *sigh* here's hoping he's not to blind to see the mice and be of some help. i keep walking around telling him he's going to have to catch them all. i don't think he knows what i'm talking about though.

Get yourself an ultrasonic pest repeller (advises the girl who stands on chairs and screams when mice appear)

does such a thing really exist?

in baltimore i more than once stood on the bed and yelled at the mice to go home and that this wasn't where they belonged. it was our house not theirs, etc. honestly, i've had mice as pets but when they're out and about and on my bed and in my food it's just totally different. sigh.
