We have new resident in the Polkaroo household. Squeaky the Mouse decided to move in last week. We think he got in via the air conditionner pipe but we really aren't sure.

You would think that Farfalle and Bazil would make their Jack Russell ancestors proud and catch our new furry friend but it turns out they are JRT's in looks only. Farfalle did manage to trap Squeaky under a cabinet but then just whined and chirped to alert us to it. Bazil hasn't even noticed her new roommate. Some hunters they are!

On Saturday, Renzo and I went out and bought a humane live trap and put some peanut butter in it, as from all Google accounts, mice love peanut butter. But I guess Kraft Peanut Butter isn't Squeaky's usual brand as so far he hasn't taken the bait. Tonight I am going to try Cheez Whiz and crackers. Maybe he would prefer that.

Maybe I should just get him a cage and let Bazil and Farfalle keep him as their pet. I'm sure they would love him and walk him every day!
