It's extraordinarily difficult to catch a mouse that expressly doesn't want to be caught. Not that I blame the mouse, mind. How was it to know that I wasn't another evil feline with designs on its very existence...

Every time I got close to catching it, it would start this piercing panicked squeaking and I would retreat in disorder. Very disconcerting. So there I was chasing it round the living room as it scuttled from under the heater to behind the television table. I finally cornered it under the sewing machine table, trapped it in a towel, and then got hold of it gently but very firmly (through the towel!) and deposited it by the gate to the empty lot just down the street. Be happy, little mouse!

I just hope someone rescues me from gigantic carnivorous aliens. Should the occasion ever arise.

First off, happy upcoming birthday and many happy returns!

Hee, lucky mouse! This reminds me, not long ago I had to catch a mouse that managed to sneak right past Mr.Gimlet Eye and under my computer desk. Let me repeat, the feline didn't even wake up until I started fussing with towels. He can smell tuna through the floor, but not this. On the other hand, I'm glad he didn't get his paws on it.

Thank you for the birthday wishes! :)

Billy and Pablo were around, adding to the poor mouse's state of terror. I obviously feed them too well for a mouse to be more than a passing diversion. *g* I mean, I'm pretty sure there's no way for mice to get into the house unaided and that Billy brought this one in. It didn't seem to be hurt. And it had the cutest beady little black eyes!

You're such a nice person, rescuing mice from gigantic carnivorous earthlings! I'm not scared of mice, it's the skittering that flusters me!

It was the squeaking in terror that threw me. Heh.

I've rescued mice, frogs, snakes, wounded birds, geckos and lizards, abandoned kittens and unwanted cats. But I do draw the line at cockraoches. *g*
