Supermouse


The mouse saga continues. Mouse #1 was captured and disposed of by my brother. We reset the trap and left it in the attic.
Where there is one mouse, there is always another one.....or twenty!
I opened the trapdoor to the attic and pulled down the stairs.
Thud. Something grazed my shoulder and landed on the floor.
"What was that?", I pondered as I looked around. I nearly lost my life. There was the mousetrap
WITH A LIVE MOUSE IN IT!
The poor little creature looked up at me, leg caught in trap.
I felt physically sick.
Damn. I searched for that mousetrap as it was supposed to be humane as it killed the mouse instantly. WTF?
I had a flashback to when this happened before. I had to hit the mouse with a brush to put it out of its misery.....and then spent the rest of the night sobbing on the couch over my cruelty. People told me I should have drowned the mouse as it was less painful.
I DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO KILL ANYTHING!!!
But I ran into the kitchen, got a bucket and filled it with tepid water.
Well it would be awful to give it a cold watery grave.
Once again, apologising to the poor creature, I scooped it up on the dustpan and put it into the water.
However, the trap came off and the little mouse began swimming around the bucket, trying to clamber out .
THAT'S IT!
I could take no more. I figured that if it had survived being caught in a trap, falling from the attic and a potential drowning, then he deserved a pardon.
 I scooped him out of the water in the aforementioned dustpan and brought him out to the bottom of the garden. He was released into the wild.
I don't know what happened to him, whether he died of hypothermia or made it back to my house before I even closed the door.
All I know is, I can't do this cruelty anymore. I'm investing in one of those gadgets that emit a high pitched noise that only mice can hear.. It wrecks their heads, so they pack up their packs and move out.
Please God, let that work!

  2. Pink Gray And White Coach Purse, They don't have a second round pick. That went to the Bills last year for Sammy Watkins, whom they allowed to leave as a free agent. He signed with Kansas City. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, discovering good restaurants, and walking her rescue Dachshund, Lola. Prior to that, he was a news anchor and reporter at KVIA TV in El Paso, where he focused on crime and public safety reporting. Ken is also the recipient of a 1st place award from the Texas Associated Press in the "Breaking News" category.. (Michael Kors Studded Purse Black)

    Coach Snow White Purse, Ultimately it more about you build habits over the course of the season. You build habits in your preparation. You build a task oriented mindset and you go out and do it..

    It's built upon a revelation that shouldn't be a revelation to anyone but always is: All worlds are political! That includes commando warfare, the New York City Ballet, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, semiconductor manufacturers, and Team USA of World Quad Rugby. And the schism rupturing that last institution is as follows: Joe Soares, the Ted Williams of quad rugby, grew old, and in his late thirties, after decades of stardom, he didn't make the team. He went off in a huff (as powerfully egoed alphas will do, ambulatory or not), got himself a job as coach of the Canadian National Wheelchair Rugby Team, and now leads it against his former teammates.

    Coach Outlet Laptop Bag, I start by managing my own personal energy, which means I exercise regularly, spend time with family and friends, and make sure that I've got the proper balance. Then, I'm very disciplined about my calendar. I often cancel and don't accept meetings if they don't fit the filter of one of my long term objectives..
