Wee Me. by MagicRat Wee Me. by MagicRat
I keep telling people the mice in my walls are small. Well if this doesn't prove it, nothing will. I caught this tiny button myself. He was hanging off the curtains. Apart from being hungry I think he's okay, at least I hope he is. I'm no great mouser so when I manage to catch one I know it's having problems. He had a nibble of cucumber and was working on the sunflower seeds, so I hope that will fix him up. Tea Mouse is keeping him company right now. She's a good little mum.

He seemed pretty hungry. It's winter and he's pretty young, I don't think he knew how to feed himself. There is probably not much to eat living in the walls anyway. So he should be fine now because he has a home and other mice for company.

Is this one of them mouses that usually run around the home I am a bit confused but not  a pet that you purchase?
Reply

MagicRat Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2014
Yes this is a wild mousie. It's a Harvest Mouse, and our building is infested with them. Once I catch them I keep them, because I know if I let them go they will get eaten by the cats or poisoned.

I just can't stand to see something so tiny suffer. I can't stand to see anything suffer, really, but how could I leave him to starve? The poor baby was so hungry.

She's such a dutiful little mum. She is definitely the matriarch of the mousie tank. Everybody minds Mummy Tea Mouse!

You do with mousies what I wish I could have as a kid. My dad used to use glue traps to get rid of them. The first time I found one still alive, I carried it to my room and tried to free it, and cried when I couldn't. :( My dad stopped using glue traps after that, but still. It broke my heart.

Glue traps are f*cking hideous. They ought to be illegal. I can't for the life of me think what a hellish death that must be, trapped to a board and slowly dying of starvation and thirst.

I think my dad finally switched to the snap traps (he wouldn't use poison because my brother was still a toddler and we had Drago and Sphinx) which weren't much better, but better than the glue traps.

At least with a snap trap they are dead instantly. When I had ducks I had to use them because there were rats EVERYWHERE and it was getting dangerous. I actually caught three at once because there were so many.

Yeah it was honestly scary. I mean I don't mind rats, wild or tame, but it was getting dangerous to leave the house. So I had to step in and use traps, which I really did not want to do.

Nope, they cannot!

I am tempted to deny any cuteness in squirrels though.  Little creeps scamper over the roof so I can hear them at all hours in my attic room, and I've notified the landlord that I think they're nesting inside the walls.  And one of them stashed a walnut in my car wheel!  The godawful squealing that made freaked me out!
