Eek! A mouse!
I've no idea what he's living on, but evidently they'll eat anything. Books, shoes, whatever.
I'd like to get rid of him as non-lethally as possible. Any ideas?
I lost all respect for mice while staying at my sister's house in the country. She asked me to dispose of a forcibly deceased relative of my new houseguest. I noticed the trap was baited with plastic cheese. I asked her about it, she said they'd been living there for 10 years, long enough to try every variation, and this little slice of embossed petrochemical worked better than anything else. Even real cheese.
I felt badly for the mouse, but good for the fact that someone did, finally, invent a better mousetrap.
A summary of how this website's mousetrap works:
Mice are instinctively attracted to holes and tunnels, and from a mouse's perspective, the toilet-paper tube mousetrap appears to be a cozy hiding place. The mouse will investigate the tube and head toward the bait.
When the mouse crawls through the tube and steps beyond the edge of the table, the tube (and mouse) will fall off the table and into the wastebasket.
After landing on the newspaper in the wastebasket, the mouse will slide and crawl down toward the bottom, where he will find the delicious snacks which you left for him.
Feeding the mouse a good meal discourages him from trying to escape from the wastebasket. After eating, the mouse will make a nest in the tissue paper in the wastebasket, and doze off to sleep.

Gee, I thought after he was in the wastebasket, then there would be a new thread in the cooking section
