Where There Is One...

There is an army.

We have an especially noisy mouse that was spotted today. She is about the size of a teaspoon, and her name is Henrietta. The Boy actually felt a pang of guilt as he went about setting the traps for her, because he was the one that spotted her dashing about in mad circles after feasting loudly on a piece of dog food.

I have no such pity.

This is war.

There are now three traps set and loaded for bear (mouse) in extremely close proximity to where Henrietta was last seen. Just in case you were wondering, we do not believe in "catch and release" in this household. If you are a vermin-infested rodent that invades this house, your only option is to leave. It's your choice as to whether that's of your own volition or in a pine plastic box.

I'm hoping to update you early tomorrow with news of Henrietta's demise.

I feel that nothing less than a full assault on rodents aka the Enemy in your neighbourhood by at the very least the Marines is called for. Moving to defcon 1 or 4 or which ever one is the most deadly....I forget. See....peace makes you forget things. Into battle I yell!
