A mouse hmm

Maudlinmaud Thu 12-Oct-17 21:01:08

Ye that's a mouse. Rats have horrid teeth.

Peaches77 Thu 12-Oct-17 21:01:22

Sorry I have a massive fear of rodents I'm not even in the house ATM

I know not everyone understands but sometimes we can't help what we are scared of blush

There will be more than the one

It's a little mouse.

Peaches77 Thu 12-Oct-17 21:03:33

I know sad

You know this is bad karma right?? They like grey hairs. Get rid of one and they come back with vengeance. Stop killing them!

user1489434024 Thu 12-Oct-17 21:05:15

There had to be a kinder way to get rid of them??

Maudlinmaud Thu 12-Oct-17 21:07:10

I think there are humane traps but I'm not sure they are too effective. Op get a cat, I don't know if it's an old wives tale but the smell of cat is supposed to scare them off

Peaches77 Thu 12-Oct-17 21:09:32

I know there are humans traps we did that last time but back they are
Sorry I can't live with mice in my house sad

That's a mouse. But rats don't always have horrid teeth. I had to dispose of 3(!) last week that were just lying dead in the garden when I woke up. And weirdly, they were adorable except for the tails.

I understand being afraid of rodents. I used to freak out at the thought of one being in my house. It's taken me years to get to the point where I can manage to dispose of a deceased one, and even then I'm quivering.

We’ve had mice and tried humans mouse traps. They managed to eat the food and not get caught. The killer mouse traps are horrible but you have to get rid somehow. We got a cat in the end.

I agree a cat is the only way to stop them coming back.

ChristinaParsons Thu 12-Oct-17 21:28:27

That is a rat. Can tell by the tail

Peaches77 Thu 12-Oct-17 21:31:33

Omg sad why do you think that

Pastacube Thu 12-Oct-17 21:34:04

look ratty me too, though hard to judge scale. I had a humane trap and caught a mouse almost daily, we used to just let it go outside and it came back. was tiny.

ChristinaParsons Thu 12-Oct-17 21:34:05

Mice are much smaller

ChristinaParsons Thu 12-Oct-17 21:35:11

A mouse would not be as long as the tail on that beast!

MaidenMotherCrone Thu 12-Oct-17 21:37:46

That is a juvenile rat. I suggest a pest control service to sort out the problem. There will be more!

Heychickadee Thu 12-Oct-17 21:37:56

I’ve got pet rats, that definitely looks like a mouse

Peaches77 Thu 12-Oct-17 21:38:47

The trap that it's is in has these dimensions

Height: 5.6cm (2.2") x Length: 10.4cm (4.1") x Width: 4.7cm (1.8")

Pastacube Thu 12-Oct-17 21:38:51

Here is the mouse we had, it's hard to see scale but it was about an inch long really small.
