I have 2 cats. Neither of them is this cat that is sleeping on my cats’ pillow in my living room. This is Sammy, the neighbor’s cat. Looks completely at home doesn’t he? Maybe a little too comfortable. He has become spoiled here.
This is a home made humane mouse trap. I built it because my cats (and Sammy) are completely spoiled and could not care less about catching the mice that have invaded my kitchen. I think I need to cut the kibble rations, dratted cats!
You are supposed to put the glass container in another container but I didn’t have anything big enough. I thought the Silpat mat would work but the contraption kept slipping. It misfired several times before we figured that out. MC propped it up with a big can of corn, reloaded the bait, and set the trap.
This morning it was pristine. Unfired. No cheese on the stick. Mouse poop on the counter. There was a mouse laughing merrily somewhere in the cabinets.
Turns out MC made the mousetrap very humane, too humane.
