After trapping a few mice the way in which they will never come back, the kids and I decided we would try and be friendly to our furry friends. So, we bought a trap that would allow us to relocate them from our kitchen to the garden or the wood pile. Well, the door on this trap has a fairly quick strong hinge on it, so the first little guy in lost part of his tail. He seemed to be OK, so out to the wood pile he went. We have discovered that there is a well worn path from the wood pile through the basement right back to our kitchen because the second night who should be in the trap again but the little guy with a short tail. We have relocated him about 5 times now. We even put him across the river and somehow he managed his way back – go figure!!
Someone told me that the smell of cats would help drive the mice away. So, guess what we did. Introducing the latest additions to our french family – Minerva and Llewellyn.
