Mouse In The House

Remember the story of The Flopsy Bunnies by Beatrix Potter? Benjamin Bunny's children fell asleep in Mr. MacGregor's garden and he caught them and tied them in a brown paper bag and went to put away his mowing machine. While he was gone, Thomasina Tittlemouse came along and nibbled a hole in the sack so they could escape. Ms Potter said, "Thomasina Tittlemouse was a resourceful person- she nibbled a hole in the bottom of the sack. The little rabbits were pulled out, and pinched to wake them..."


WELL!!! I do not like resourceful mice! I try to keep my flour etc in bins so no unwanted bugs or mice can get to them, but we recently had a  - resourceful - mouse in the house...it tried to chew into a thick plastic container of self-rising flour inside my cabinet!





That's a little TOO resourceful for me! We got resourceful ourselves and finally caught it with a sticky-trap!
Have you noticed- mice in real life are never as "cute" as in the stories...
