We have floor length curtains up our patio doors and for the second time this week I have gone in the kitchen to find my cat sitting at the bottom of the curtains and a little mouse sitting in the folds at the top of the curtains. Also there is a hole in the curtains where it looks like one of the mice has taken a bite. Dh is away so I had to catch the mouse and put it outside. I also found a mouse under the freezer (dead this time) so I had to scrape that up. I have always had a cat and this has never happened before. Don't know what I am going to find next. MIL was supposed to feed the cat when we went away but has gone off the idea now.

How did u catch a mouse??

We're had a furry resident for sometime who has stayed very elusive - we only saw the gnaw marks and heard the scratching until the other night when he ran across the floor right in front of me.
I don't have a cat and have no idea how to get rid of him. Have tried humane traps, can't find the old fashioned kind or poisen anywhere, and I don't really want to have to kill it if it's not necessary.

I got a pint glass, tipped him into it using a rolled up piece of paper and when he was in the glass I covered the top with a newspaper and carried him outside. We live next to a field so I put him in there. We do get allsorts in our garden, frogs, hedgehogs, squirrels, but no one else has actually made it to the curtain rail.

I might try that if I see ours again - he was so quick tho!! We don't even have a garden, we live on a very busy London road, but we get lots of wildlife, mostly foxes and squirrels, but they stay outside too!
