Low and behold we now have our first mouse. He popped out under a cabinet while I was watching Netflix, he was a cute till thing, we stared at each other for a bit till I moved. I almost wished I didn't tell my boyfriend so I could have picked up one of those have a heart traps myself. He thinks I'm being ridiculous. Anywho, I do want the mouse out as soon as possible. Mice don't really bother me, I don't have food out, even our fruit is in fridge. But I don't want my young boys picking up....well actually thats my question. What sickness can transfer between a wild mouse and my fuzzys? What should I look out for other then mites. Right now my 4 month olds are on Oxbow young rat lab blocks, which crumble and gets every where (I seriously hate this food) around the cage and the floor. While I have been diligent in cleaning around the area there is still a mess when I wake up or get back form work which might tempt the mouse to get close.
