So, do yo think that this 'ere anti-mouse thingy is
working?

Euphro says:

Oh dear! Miss BP: I can hear those things and it is pretty unpleasant. I doubt if a cat or a dog could hang around near them :)

FilbertFox says:

i can't hear this one (there is a different type in the garage) and our dog doesn't seem to mind either of them - neither do the mice!

paintist says:

oh no not mouses....I am afraid the good old fashioned trap is employed here, with a bit of squished mars bar as bait.....I also have the plug-ins but they are a sort of belts and braces job...the cat just sits and watches

Euphro says:

My father-in-law has ones with several settings. There is one on which I only hear a faint ticking, which is obviously the one I prefer. But, apparently, mice serenade their paramours at ultrasonic frequencies :D

You could just learn to live in harmony with them like my parents did with their mousey guests.

FilbertFox says:

sorry Cricks can't do that they eat my food and i want it!

So then Euphro i am initiating a mouse shagfest!

Mice can't stand rats so would you like me to send you some of Bootsie's droppings to fool them into thinking you have rats? Or, borrow a little soiled cat litter of someone and fool them into thinking you have a cat.

paintist says:

I don't mind sharing food....but its the pooing an pissing that bugs me...not a harmonius scenario

FilbertFox says:

or buy a pet rat of my very own! a friend from work has offered me her ferret for a few days.

Twiglet says:

The Ffoxes have a dear old dog, she might not take kindly to a borrowed cat.

28th Mar 2006, 19:09

paintist says:

no....keep cats away from dogs

28th Mar 2006, 19:18

Twiglet says:

Ffox, borrow the ferret, what fun!

Euphro says:

I think you are probably quite safe on the shagfest front as you are probably doing the equivalent of playing "It's Chico Time" to a Radio Three listener :D

FilbertFox says:

Euphro - that is very funny, thanks

Put food in glass jars, tins, pots.
They'll get bored and hungry and go down the pub for a pie and a pint instead!

just got some nice friendly traps baited with peanut butter, then when they have had their fill i will take them for a long walk in a land far far away, free from traffic and the hostile environment we have created. And if they come back - i will break their necks....Just kidding on the the last bit.

After examining all the evidence, I have come to the conclusion that the mouse-y trap thingys are, in fact, not working, and were a waste of money.

KILL THEM!! KILL THEM ALL!! Unless they can be house trained and we can keep them as pets.

paintist says:

house mouses are homing mouses...and they bring friends that they meet on their way home... peanut butter makes em stronger...at least mars bar will rot their teeth!

FilbertFox says:

i have been told if i take them 3 miles away it should be ok. i will drive the long way to work and let them out near the rubbish tip, they should have fun there.

30th Mar 2006, 11:54

FilbertFox says:

Ash - no more pets, you are the only vermin welcomed in this house

30th Mar 2006, 11:54

aww..
no ferret then?

30th Mar 2006, 14:18

FilbertFox says:

oh could do a swap, i get the ferret, my friend gets my daughter. Yes!

Ashlea says:

Oof that was uncalled for.
