We are currently sharing our house-----with a mouse!  It's a busy little creature.  We see it mostly in the evenings, scurrying along the baseboards from one "safe place" to the next--a bit of furniture, a hot water radiator--disappearing somewhere, maybe into a hole in the wall----a little grey shadow, looking for the dark edges of the rooms.  Sometimes downstairs, sometimes upstairs.

It seems extraordinarily able to elude capture in a trap.  I've positioned traps along its preferred pathways and even baited them with cheddar, but so far no luck.  I really, really hope that it's not a Mama Mouse with a nest of babies somewhere.  But what else can explain the creature's uncanny ability to survive?
