    ThreeShadows Quid me anxia?

    Last night I was sitting in the family room of my now greatly undervalued McMansion, thinking of you and your rodent problem. Our Kitten Kaboodle was scurrying around with one of his toys. I realized that, according to the laws of physics, the toy should not have rolled across the room without slowing down.
    It was a mouse! Now, I'm no stranger to this event since we used to live in a farm built in the 1820's. I'm not worried about the plague. I've had fleas. I always rely on the killer instinct of our feline friends. The next morning there was a dead mouse in the middle of the room.

    Now we need to figure out how they are getting in. In the meantime, I thought you might enjoy a little wisdom from our friends up North...

    OMG! I haven't seen that SCTV sketch in YEARS.

    ThreeShadows, THANK YOU for posting that. I don't know if you've ever spent any time in cottage country in Ontario, but the McKenzie brothers are closer to true life than many of us want to admit.

    Way to be, eh!
