Mouse heaven – 5 tons of nuts and dehydrated fruit. Take that, stupid ants who worked all summer carrying bits of food to the anthill!
While blogging this morning, I saw the mouse run behind the bookcase. Thinking fast, I ran outside, grabbed and set the trap, and set it along the wall near the bookcase. I then resumed reading Pearls Before Swine and kinda forgot about it.
Until I heard The Snap!
And there the little pest was, writhing in pain from having its face crushed. I took it outside before it could bleed on the carpet, snapped a pic, and then tossed it on the compost heap. It wasn’t until I turned it to release the hammer that I noticed its eye on the other side was almost popped out of the socket!
Good thing I ate an early breakfast!
