Who Gives a Mouse a Cookie???

You've probably all read the book by Laura Numeroff...

"If you give a mouse a cookie, he's going to ask for a glass of milk..." Way Cute Book. But, I've decided to write my own version.


"If you give a mouse some peanut butter on a trap, you will snap his little neck... " Well, that's the plan anyway! I know... I know! Awful! Well, just be glad there aren't any pics! :)

Apparently we have a mouse... eww! I really need to go and shower now! Bleh!

are you really using mousetraps? I don't think I'd be able to dispose of it without puking. By the way, this is my first comment after a month.

Lol! "disposing" of them is the "boys' chore"...as well as setting them! Lol! My job was simply to buy the traps! Although one was caught when the kids were gone...big-d came over & took care of it... After I screamed! Lol!

Are you using the spring traps or glue traps?

EmmaP said...

bleh... i hate even talking about it!!! I am using a spring trap that doesnt snap fingers off, and is supposedly easy to set... again, i wouldn't know... the oldest one sets them...

everyone is having a mouse problem these days! We got ours a year ago. I'd NEVER heard of mice in our area but apparently they've snuck in. I had nightmares that they were the size of guinea pigs and rabbits and it was haunting me till it was taken care of. Now I hear of neighbors having them and I'm praying they don't find their way back in. We did snap & glue traps and poison. Those suckers had no chance here.

I don't mind setting the trap, if I have to. It's the disposing of them. I throw the whole trap away, mouse and all. You get a bag and pick up the trap with the bag,and then turn it inside out. Toss and goodbye. Luckily, knock on wood, I have not had a mouse in NV. Good Luck

Happy hunting!

if you give a mouse a raisin, chances are, he's gonna get away. And, if he gets away, he'll PROBABLY still come back for that peanut butter.


(hope you caught it. EW EW EW)

i don't mind the setting and the disposing. i just hate the sound. it means some poor creature just died. i happen to think mice are cute, but i haven't been okay with them since the chewed up a blanket i was crocheting. jerks! that's when i started catching them with banana laffy taffies
