So we live in a townhouse (about 10-15 in our row), and they are ripping out the kitchen of the townhouse a few doors down...tonight we came home to our cat (who I now have nicknamed "The Jack Bauer of Mice") batting around a baby field mouse, and she had apparently killed one and left it by the door for us earlier today. We disposed of them, but now I'm having a slight anxiety issue that we may have an infestation somewhere in our walls!
We don't have any signs of mice living in our townhouse (other than, you know, the actual mice!)...no droppings, nests, signs of chewing, etc. and I'm a neat freak so I think they either came through the walls from the ripped out kitchen, or possibly came in from outside since there was a sudden temperature drop in the past few days.
Has anybody tried the "humane" mouse traps or any other methods that would be safe to have with a cat around? I don't want to use the traditional traps (which I've heard actually work the best vs. those fancy ones!) because I don't want her to get stuck in them...and I'd rather avoid chemicals that she could ingest. Just wondering if there is a method that works best? Our complex exterminator will come in a couple of weeks, but for my own sanity I need to do something first haha...
Oh what a day!
