I saw a mouse in my bathroom the other day. Last night I heard it chewing on something next to my nightstand. I knew I couldn't do anything about it in the middle of the night, and didn't want to wake up my husband, so I tried to ignore it and go to sleep. I heard it rustle around for a minute, then there was silence. The next sound I heard was my cat sharpening his claws on the carpet. I could tell that he was over by the bedroom door. The next sound I heard was definitely a POUNCE! And then I had to get up to go to the bathroom, but it was dark, and I was so afraid I was going to step on a dead mouse in the dark. I tip-toed gingerly to the bathroom, making sure I didn't step on any surprises.
I think the cat missed the mouse, because I haven't seen a dead mouse laying around anywhere. I guess it's time to get out a trap.
