The trap is baited

Quite literally. Today I got a couple of mousetraps and I set one of them in my bedroom. The instructions say to point the baited end towards a wall — I would assume this is to stop the mouse detritus from flying across the room. I did one better by putting the trap inside of an empty pizza box — a venue that the mouse has been known to frequent. However this time I added some cheese that I had that was starting to change colour and has quite a fragrance. If that doesn’t draw it out, I don’t know what will. And this way, if I do get him then I can just close the pizza box and throw the whole mess in the garbage. :)

All of this is assuming that the mouse is even still in my room — perhaps the cat got it or it left out of hunger once I cleaned all the garbage out of my room. I also have to make sure to keep the cat out of my room, because when it comes down to it, I would prefer not to break her foot with the trap. I will be sure to let you know if anything develops in this front.

20:34 Damn. The cheese is gone and the trap is still set. We are dealing with a smart mouse.
