It is enough to make my blood pressure soar! At least Mouse #2 made me almost squeal on my way to a routine doctor's appointment yesterday.
Who would have ever thought that the blue woolen peacoat that I haven't worn in two years would be the nestling spot for Mouse #2? Since the weather was damp and cold ( and my fleece jacket was in the dryer), I decided to wear my super warm peacoat to my appointment. As I reached into the coat closet (right next door to the pantry!!!), a mouse jumped out of the coat, bounced on the floor, and scurried into a closet two doors down. I wanted to scream but knew I would give my hub a heart attack and then what could he do. Well, put out more traps, of course.
So instead of screaming, I jerked the coat out of the closet. Threw it on a bench in the mudroom and grabbed a woolen cape. Not much chance of mice in that flat piece of fabric! Then I was off to my appointment.
This is what I found in the pockets of my peacoat:
What did we do next? Put traps in all the closets in that hallway! No mouse ( mice!!!) yet!
