    Oh Karlin...thank goodness it was only a fly!!

    Before we had the work done on the house we used to have mice visitors We were very good to start with and had humane traps, loaded with peanut butter. Well you have to take the mouse at least one mile away to release it....when we'd done this over 20 times...and on the 5th trip one evening, I'm afraid we despaired and went over to the nasty traps

    We did have the devices that give off ultrasonic pulses and are supposed to scare the mice away, but ours were either deaf or liked the noise, as they'd sit underneath the unit having a wash!!

    One was particularly cheeky, this little face would appear from behind the Rayburn and he'd trot across the work surface, oblivous to the dogs or us!!


    I know they are still about in the outbuildings, but we also have a Weasel and a Stoat about, so they are not getting things all their own way!!

    I would of thrown the food away.

    I remember when we first moved to Canada, I was 12 my mom rented a basement apartment, it was one of those homes that the middle floor was also rented and the top.

    We'll we had a huge field behind us and needless to say it was full of mice who loved to come in the house. My mom would leave for work around 5:00 a.m. leaving me home alone to face the mice. I hated that basement, one night when she was dating my stepfather and they went out he always brought me a bag of goodies. In that bag of goodies was a box of Cracker Jacks (Candy coated popcorn) which always came with a prize, we'll guess what my prize was. Yes a ugly Plastic mouse, I threw those Cracker Jacks and ran into the bathroom, not that it was any safer it took me hours to come out. I will never forget that, I hate mice.

    Needless to say we did moved shortly afterwards, we were waiting for an apartment just new to Canada.

    Ummm well the stoat runs along the garden wall which is about 4 ft from the caravan...and several toads live underneath it - and the hedgehog visits there too, but the only inhabitants tend to be spiders so I think you'll be ok

    Oh Linda I'm so sorry, no wonder you don't like mice VB ((((hugs))))

    The ones here do have cute little faces...but don't worry, if and when you plan to come over, we'll make sure they make themselves scarce...

    That story is funny! Reminds me when my sister told her son, who is 5 to fill up the dogs bowl with kibble, so here comes Ryan with a measuring cup full of kibble saying... "Mommy, Lucky's food has a tail!" My sister said she never jumped so high!
