This is what I learned this week: mice like blueberry bagels and dog food. They also are stupid enough to fall for a trap even after Tom & Jerry has been a thing for a while now.
Tuesday, I noticed there was a hole in my brand new package of blueberry bagels. "Whatever, I probably ripped it when I took the twisty tie off." Wednesday, I noticed a quarter of a blueberry bagel was missing and there was a new hole in the bag. "Those little bastards!" I had to throw my beloved blueberry bagels away and invest in some mouse traps ASAP. Wednesday evening when I got home from work, my house REAKED of garbage. I assumed it was Chloe, who of course had been playing in the mud all day, but I quickly came to find out she just smelled like a dog; nothing like the stench coming from the living room.
Thursday morning.... dun dun dun.....
RIP Gus Gus. Of course, I screamed and jumped the second I saw this... What 22-year-old blonde female wouldn't?? I left it sitting there all day until Cole came and picked it up for me. Thank goodness I have such a brave knight in shining armor around.... However, the stench in the living room remains. I'm about 95% sure its a dead mouse in the wall. Good thing I have a Scentsy. All the research I have done says that small rodents will deteriorate within a few days and the smell will go away..... hopefully thats true, or else I may have to bust a hole in the wall and invest in a cat to put in it....or two.
"If you give a mouse a cookie (errr, blueberry bagel), he's going to ask for a glass of milk."
Next time: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies (I know you're excited).
Peace out Girl Scout.
