WARNING: HIGH GRUESOME QUOTIENT BELOW. (No pictures, though.)
I found a dead mouse under the sink in the glue trap when I got a new garbage bag out, which wasn’t there the last time, not longer ago than a day and a half. Do I have cannibal mice? Or worse? SOMETHING had eaten from it. It certainly hadn’t had time to decay in less than a day and a half, but most of its lower body was missing, certainly all the guts, and most of one leg, and there was a bite mark in the skull. I wait with interest to see what happens in the other three traps. The instructions said to check them after three days and if nothing was caught to move them to a new location, but the two in the kitchen were right where I had found mouse poop, so I waited, and a week later, here’s this guy, who really was incredibly long-haired, which I had doubted when I caught a glimpse. If I have mice, must they really be Persian mice?
