Default It's a mouse

From this thread: http://chazhound.com/forums/showthread.php?t=156188

Finally saw it and it's definitely a tiny mouse. I discovered it because Mia vanished from where I was and that's so strange. I found her in the spare room digging frantically between the shelves and the wall. I figured it was 'the shadow thing' and it was. She went around to the other side of the shelves and flushed it right towards me. I jumped and screamed.

Mia is pitching a fit right now because I blocked her from the room where it is.

What do I do now? I really really am grossed out.

ETA: I haven't seen Mia this excited in a while. That mouse made her day lol.

Mia would just chase it and play with it for hours. She's one of those dogs that must play with her prey.

She's gotten bugs before and it's so gross. She never eats them, just catches them, lets them go, catches them again, and again and again... until they are dead. Then she is sad because they don't play anymore. With frogs and lizards and stuff, she usually just bothers them as much as possible until they finally get away.

I need to borrow another dog. Or a cat.

I must first say that after reading your other thread yesterday.... last night I had a nightmare involving black widows.

I don't know, I guess if it were me I'd be setting a hav-a-hart trap or something and trying to catch it so I could release it - far, far away. But that's just me. Or get a cat lol--or just let Mia loose

I would really rather it have been a lizard.

If you youtube or google "humane mouse trap" a ton of cheap, easy, DIY designs come up. Maybe look into those? I think if it were me I would just march in and scoop it up with my fishtank net and take it outside I am pretty fearless with little animals though lol. I don't really like the idea of killing them, if I can help it... So yeah, I would google it Some can be made with material from around the house.

If you let Mia at it, it might simply choose to move elsewhere rather than be terrorized and harassed.

If not, I'd probably just get some old fashioned mouse traps. It's not like there aren't enough mice in the world.

Snap traps are easy and cheap enough just about anywhere including grocery stores - just add peanut butter. Also - put up your dog food. Also after you catch one make sure to leave it down for a few more days. Often where there is one, there is actually three.

I second the traps.

Or you could borrow Webster or Kim. They don't play with their food til it's already dead... :/

Or you could get a kitten and raise it up to be a mighty mouse hunter then unleash it on the mouse populations (which by then would probably number in the hundreds). But that might be more of a long-term plan.

You could get a cat like my parents who terrorized everything in our neighborhood - then laid on the kitchen floor to watch the mice play. LOL.
