Mouse Perfume

Here's a tip for those that attempt to capture mice: If you're going to set multiple mouse traps in your house make sure you remember where you put them. About a week ago I noticed a foul smell coming from the laundry room. My first thought was 'I got him', so I looked in all the places I remember putting a trap. Nothing. I left it alone for a couple days thinking maybe it was smelly laundry, but when I came back the stench was worse. I looked around again then wondered if the mouse had died in the air duct and the heater was blowing the smell around. As I was cleaning out the laundry room tonight I finally moved a table that was standing upright and there lay the trap with not one but two peaceful mouse corpses. May they now rest in the dumpster. If the transportation of the mice from my home to the dumpster made me gag, I can't imagine what Emily's reaction would have been. BARF?

Oh, that's just nasty. We had one die behind our dishwasher and it took a while to find. YUCK! So glad you took care of it instead of Em, what a nice guy. She WOULD have puked.
