We have a mouse in the house. It’s a natural part of living in the world. Occasionally, a little rodent may find a way into our domicile. It ran across the room, under the tv, and into the ductwork. Thing-1 wants to catch it and keep it as a pet. I set out some traps. My preference is the old-fashioned kind baited with peanut butter. Thing-2 asked if a mouse could have “wabbies.” Now they are both terrified of the mouse and refuse to travel the house alone. Such a tiny thing can cause many problems. It seems as though our 17-year-old cat has some work to do.
