Cute little mouse

At work I am battling with a cute little brown mouse who has decided to set up shop behind my filing cabinets. He's not doing anything inappropriate that I can see so far (like chewing on museum collections), but I would like him to vacate the premises as soon as possible. Our reliable Havahart cage trap just doesn't seem to be so reliable when it comes to this little mouse. He hops through with nary a care in the world while I watch. Wheeee!

Well, I just ordered the "smart" mouse trap that PETA and other humane organizations recommend. Let's see you jump through this little green plastic house, cute little mouse!

Fingers crossed this works - I really don't want to take *ahem* extreme measures.

That picture is just so appropos! Poor little mouse - maybe you can catch him and turn him into an office pet like our Peep?

Haha! I am under attack at work by a colony of chipmunks. Why do they have to be so cute? KDM
