Um... @CrealCritter I'm sure you won't miss Gerald. I give it 3 days before you are visited by Geraldine, and all of her children. They will stare at you with those beady little eyes, pleading with you to tell them where their daddy has gone. Of course, suffice it to say, Geraldine has never been at a loss for appropriate suitors, and will hardly miss Gerald. B/C, the courtship will commence immediately. They will dine on delectable little pantry morsels before retiring to the boudoir for a bit of romance.
I have a mouse (or more ) in our house also. I have a Tin Cat trap since I always get my fingers with the snap traps or the dogs/house cat gets into them. I usually have good luck with it too. Nothing in the Tin Cat, but I found a new pile of dog kibble on the storage shelf - right above the tin cat.
Tin Cat now has dog kibble and peanut better in it.
