?Am I smarter than the mouse?
« on: 10/11/2011 13:11:34 »
M comes up thru gas stove onto the countertop & raids food left there. 2 nites ago, I left a flank bone & M raids & tries to drag bone down into stove but its too big. I put the bone back on countertop & yesterday I hear M moving the bone, this time he tries a different burner hole to no avail so I left the bone where M left it in the burner hole. Last nite, I left an opened plastic bag loaf of bread on the countertop [forgot] & this morn the bread is untouched! = Wonder if M is going for the bone & forgetting the countertop raid

I would buy a cat ;)
Roses are red,
Violets are blue.
Most poems rhyme,
but this one doesn't

Or a dog. Our Cairn terrier is a relentless mouser.

Isn't there a way to make an auto-lighter on your stove triggered by an IR sensor?  It might not get the mouse, but he would surely find a different route into the house!!!
