Almost there...

So Pixel has been obsessed with under the stove for a few weeks, but no probing or visual inspection had produced any results. We figured he was just after where the red dot hid.

So then Rick opened the cabinet under the sink, where the trash and recycling lives, and a mouse ran out. Pixel whacked it, and after bouncing around a bit, it ran under the stove.

Rick came and told me and I promptly lost it. So, I went to the store and got traps and an ultrasonic rodent discouragement device. Rick pulled out the stove and uncovered the two holes in the wall and the gap around where the gas line comes in from the basement. So our plan for the evening changed to patch up holes and set traps. I also scrubbed down the sides of the stove since it was out.

All I can say is, "Dear Karma Fairy, Ha ha. Very funny. I surrender. You win. Please go pick on someone else now."


  • If you find you still have the problem in the future you might find getting a kitchen trashcan with a lid useful. Once when we had a mouse problem I found out they would climb into the kitchen trashcan even though it looks like it should be impossible.
