Listen, I know I live in the country and I know that some people can coexist with these little guys with no problems. However I am just not one of those people. They freak me out. I have a long and horrible history with rodents that I won't even begin to try to explain right now, but just know that Brindley will never have a pet mouse in this house!
I am really not a cat person either but I have contemplated getting one to eliminate the mice, but my luck is I would get a super lazy cat or one of those "motherly" ones that would probably begin nursing all of the little mouse babies (because we killed the mother in a trap), and then there would be pictures of a kitty snuggling all of these little mouse babies on the internet and people would say "awe" and think I am a horrible, horrible person.
Whew, I think I over did it on the cough medicine already this morning. So, long story short, if you see Bunny FooFoo hopping around, send him over to my house so he can bop some field mice for me!
