So speaketh Chris, official mouse hunter

"So the plan is, Zoe herds the mouse behind the oven. And then when it gets there, it sees some PEANUT BUTTER. And then... SNAP!"

Poor mousie.

I have no pity for it.

If it had wanted to live, it wouldn't have visited my kitchen.

Mwa-ha-ha! I have a great mouse story too, but I can't tell you about it because I hope to turn it into a picture book one day. Yippee for your Heroic Mouse Slayers!

Mousekind will fear you! The other mice will remember this day (or whatever day) as a day of death and sorrow. It will be forbidden to enter your home...

...at least until the Uprising.

*cues spooky music*

I love the idea that Chris and Zoe worked on and agreed upon this plan between the two of them.

There was one in our toaster one day.
My husband put a piece of bread in and pushed the lever - and POP - out shot a mouse!

Woke my husband up.

:-D

I thought of your situation the other day when I read the Diana Wynne Jones short, "Little Dot," in which, at one point, Dot (the POV cat) has an epiphany when taught by another cat that not only can mice be caught, they can also be eaten. Dot hadn't realized that before.

But keep in mind, cute little mousie could get even:

ARRGh, I posted my mouse thoughts in the comments below...sorry! So let me say here, good luck with the taxes. They're killer alright. Not mousetrap killer, but close.

Poor mousie, schmoor schmousie. Kill it!!! Go Zoe! Go Zoe! Go Zoe!

We've never had a mouse problem. Three or four cats will do that for ya.

Awww! The poor mouse! Ah, well, the world will survive without it. I hope Zoe has a kitten-sized blast hunting the critter down. Rrrrawwrr!!!

My cat drowns the mice in the dog's water bowl. I'm surprised he didn't tie a little Lego block to its foot.

The mice sleep with the fishes!

I caught our cat playing soccer with a mouse. Mouse was the ball and not happy about it. Neither was I when I had to declare "game over".
