The kitchen is closed temporarily! We have a mouse and I'm totally freaking out. We have lived here for 23 years and have never had a mouse. We don't know how it got in but it had better leave! We have tried to catch it using different bait. I'm thinking it's a vegan - it has not liked Gorgonzola, provolone, sopresseta, or Nutella (we were out of peanut butter). It did, however, have a party with a nice plum tomato. I'm so grossed out I have not been able to cook. We've either grilled or ordered out. I can't stand even going in there.
Over the weekend we had a massive pantry/cabinet purge, as well as a deep, deep clean. During which I was petrified that it was going to come flying at me at any moment. I guess this is one way to sort out all the old and expired things in your cabinets. We also had a massive hole plugging stint. My kitchen is now sealed up tight as a drum.
We have been left with no other recourse. We have to resort to glue traps. It feels so inhumane but I have given him chances - 4 whole days worth! We have to pull out all the stops now.
