I left DD's lovely Hello Kitty birthday cake out on Saturday night, so I didn't forget to take it to her party on Sunday. Just as we were about to leave, i noticed a small hole in the corner of the box, and holes in the icing.
Bastard things. Had to throw it away sad

they truly are.....I fire death rays upon them all, the world over.

except for the cute cartoony ones of course. I mean, xmas without xmas mickey would just be wrongwink!

they EAT christmas DECORATIONS?? What are they made of?!

bastards

psychomum5 Tue 30-Nov-10 14:51:50

well, some were wrapped in paper to protect them, I think they decided it was much better used for nesting.

DH found yellowed tissue paper....we think yellow with wee <vomit>

I am soooooo fucked off, some of them are beyond slavaging, and those that are, I am now convinced are germified and so unusable, bearing in mind the un-washability of many of the decorations.

They eat anything!

We have either mice or a rat at the mo - getting in by the bath pipes we think somewhere, then scuttling under the bath, into the boiler cupboard (which is in the kitchen) to chew some disintigrating wood in there.

Can hear it, ferreting about. Blocked some holes up to try and keep it out - convinced it's a rat though - just sounds too loud to be a tiny mouse.

BellaBearisWideAwake Tue 30-Nov-10 14:53:42

But ... my baubles are PLASTIC! Ewww at mouse wee.

You need to bless your house psychomum. You've had far too much bad luck.

thumbwitch Tue 30-Nov-10 15:07:13

LOTF - if you can hear it chewing, it's probably a rat, yes. According to the EHO who came to deal with my vermin problem - I told her I could hear them gnawing at night (they were making a Jerry-type hole in the skirting board/floor) and she said that it would be rats. She was right.

Psychomum - for your Chrissy decs.

belle, I need to get rid of the fucking gremlin that has taken residence atop my roof is what I need to do....I mean, god help santa when he arrives if the gremlin is still there, we might get a gremlin santa clause....<perish the thought>

thumbwitch, what if you can just hear scurrying?? or could they be mice/rat hybrids??

<quiver>

thumbwitch Tue 30-Nov-10 15:14:44

scurrying could just be mice. I don't think they have managed to crossbreed themselves yet...

psychomum5 Tue 30-Nov-10 15:23:11

and even flame doesn;t care.

text her, and what did she reply??

'<snigger>, they will leave pretty poo...'

<grump>

<reloads deathray gun>

psychomum5 Tue 30-Nov-10 15:23:40

thumbwitch, knowing my house and its luck, they will manage it here!!!

I dunno about this hearing them thing.

We had one in here last week. I think it was cold and randomly seeking shelter, or brung in by useless cat, then lost...anyway, heard a tremendous scratching/clawing/clunking noise behind the cupboard.
Got hoover out, stuck hoover behind cupboard.

(cat sat watching all this)

Tiny (ok, moderate sized) mouse was found in the trap the following morning. There have been no further deaths or noises.

I'm praying we're alroght now - I know the damage they can do, it's soul destroying.

Sympathies, Psycho.

EnnisDelMar Tue 30-Nov-10 15:48:20

LOL at glittery poo.

EnnisDelMar Tue 30-Nov-10 15:50:01

The noise was deafening btw.

Psycho - have you any traps? Do you know where they get in?

You have to get on top of it quickly with mices. A few weeks of 'Oh how sweet, ignore them' is very unwise. It's when you notice your phone isn't working for 3 days that you realise they've eaten the cable.

psychomum5 Tue 30-Nov-10 15:54:29

you clealry had a vampire mouse, that once dead, reverted to normal mouse to fool youwink

am not finding the glittery poo amusing.....<not sniggering>

psychomum5 Tue 30-Nov-10 15:55:33

DH has set them now, and also set one downstiars....one of the poison-type ones where theytake the food and take ot home to share, and hopefull kill them all.

<fingers crossed>

EnnisDelMar Tue 30-Nov-10 16:03:16

Aha. Very good.

Thing to watch though with the poison, is they turn up unexpectedly in odd places, dead and rather whiffy.

I had some in carrier bags of papers, one died in a jumper in a drawer - which I then wore, wondering why it smelt a bit funny. then washed. Then put away, still smelly, and wore again only to have a mouse fall out of it, quite, quite dead.

I had a mild form of PTSD for some months after that. Now I use the ones where you load with chocolate spread and sit and wait for the bang. At least you know where the sweet little bastards are.

psychomum5 Tue 30-Nov-10 16:10:06

not sure I like the thought of them curling up in my jumpers to die.

what if they try my knicker drawer instead....think of the whiffy smells thenconfused

am tmepted by the banging choc spread ones, altho if I am right, they would get overworked......

WhyIsThatThen Tue 30-Nov-10 16:17:55

Mice ate their way through my loft one yr. Little fuckers. They will destroy pretty much anything. I now have one of those ultra sonic things up there and touch wood <taps head> we seem to be critter free.

Beware of the poison route in the loft....if they die in their nest and its in the loft, the decaying mice will stink to high heaven. I set humane traps, they like Mars bars....

psychomum5 Tue 30-Nov-10 16:20:45

have checked with DH....poison ones downstairs, trappy ones upstairs. he said the same, does not want rotting ones in the loft. why he therefore wants them downstairs tho.....

TheYuleLogLady Tue 30-Nov-10 16:22:19

fuckers.

although now you can shop for nice new ones.
