Last week, I spotted a wee little mouse on a shelf in my pantry. When it noticed me watching, it darted off into a hole in the wall, next to the shelf.
When we did the dining room reno in 2010 there were a bunch of mice nests in the ceiling. We set traps then and haven't seen a mouse since. Last summer when we got Tootsie Noodles, he proved to be an excellent mouser so I didn't think we'd have a problem with mice again.
No such luck. Tootsie has been neglecting his duties. That lazy cat has spent the entire winter passed out behind the wood stove. Limey set up a bunch of traps in the pantry the other day and we've since caught eight mice. I guess Tootsie must have felt insulted because we heard him chasing something in the bathroom last night and this morning I found him snacking on his catch in the kitchen. All he left was the tail.
Hopefully he won't be neglecting his duties any longer. Now if I could only get him to clean up after himself.
