I am completely freaking out and can't sleep... didn't even know I had such a phobia of mice. Was sitting watching TV on my laptop in bed and one (pretty big but I am 99% sure not a rat) came scurrying in, I freaked and it ran back out again. This is horrible, by myself in flat with two kids, where did it come from!!!

I am seriously considering taking the kids to my parents tomorrow and calling someone out but that seems extreme, can anybody help me get some perspective please!? I used to have a cat but lost it when me and my husband broke up last year, in ground floor terraced flat in a city, there are gaps in floorboards in bathroom, can they come from there?

Any advice for calming me down or how to get rid of them please help sad thank you!

I would be like this too and was in a holiday home in the country which has a very blasé mouse which sat on the rug, unperturbed as I screeched. They're more frightened than we are. Go to bed and don't stress and get a humane trap tomorrow

That little mouse won't hurt you. Get some catch and release traps tomorrow and you'll be all set.

This is probably not the time to tell you I was once woken in the middle of the night by being bitten by a mouse?

No - thought not.

Seriously you'll be fine. Just get a trap in the morning! I find peanut butter works well as a bait and expect to catch more than one.
