I saw the photos about putting the trap at a right angle up against the wall. I can put them in places where my cat usually doesn't go. I can try the chocolate and Q-Tip of vanilla. I may end up using peanut butter, I'm not sure I have any chocolate in the house. It ate the peanut butter the last time.
I guess when I used the spring door cage trap, the openings in it were probably open enough for it to crawl out. That trap I bought in Chinatown years ago. I couldn't find my other have a heart trap.
Last night I was so frightened I started making banging noises with a paint roller extender rod I have. After I screamed twice, I heard noises that sounded like it was chewing on wood. A friend said they had mice in the past and they went away once they plugged in those electric high pictched sound things; the same ones your site said doesn't work.
I believe the stress from this is affecting a condition I have and making it worse. I'd like to sleep in my bed tonight. My fear is that it may go near me. Although I have never found any droppings in or on my bed.
I dread picking up the trap with the mouse in it. I guess I'll have to use tongs or something. Ick!!!
I wish my Himalayan cat was a mouser. She just looked at it with interest and never pounced on it.
I thought about moving my post to the mouse page, but I thought it might be better to stay on the same thread. I'll keep you posted if and when I catch it. Until then know that this is an ongoing problem.
