Score....one dead mouse!!

So I guess its true, you get what you pay for and persistance does pay off!! Woo hoo for the new Ortho expensive mouse trap!! The Cadilac of mouse traps was totally worth it to me. SCORE!! I woke up around 4ish today and I knew I had one. I could just feel it. I came downstairs and proceeded to the two newest traps. The red indicator was in a different position on both traps so I knew he had finally bit the bait baby!!! I got a big wad of paper towel and picked up the trap. I was so happy but also nervous and still grossed out. When I peaked in all I could see was part of the tail and his little foot. Poor rodent. I hope you enjoyed your last meal of a giant blob of peanut butter!! Can you believe I was scared sh--less to pick up the trap even though the mouse was self contained. He went by by outside and into my trash can. I pray there are NO more but I still have three traps set in my living room. You know I saw him last nite and I screamed bloody murder. Yes I murdered him and I couldn't be happier!! I say hurray for Ortho and you totally deserved my hard earned dollars!! Big shout out to Home Depot too even though I dropped a lot of money there on Sunday when I went to buy a trap or two. I still have three or four other backups.

Wow, you even disposed of the mouse & trap yourself?! I think I'd have used a shovel to carry the darn thing out to the garbage so I wouldn't have to touch the trap. I know, I'm nuts. I don't even like a PICTURE of a mouse. You are one brave cookie. That's awesome that Ortho commented. Way to go Tami and Ortho!

I hate mice too but to cut off his foot????UGH. There is another product that you can buy that does not physically hurt the mouse. I know they are just rodents but I can't stand to kill any thing. But if it gets in my house they are caught and disposed of. I'll tell you about it when we talk. Anyway, I'm glad that you got rid of the mouse. I hope that you do not have any more.
