Mouse in sticky trap by jma.work
My ideal mousetrap would have the creature simply leave. Like a tersely worded note. That doesn’t work. The alternative is what’s called a sticky trap. This is left overnight with a bit of papaya in the middle and in the morning I have to deal with it. ‘It’ being what looks like a sickly pulsating organ, covered with goo and, uh, pulsating. It didn’t really look like a mouse, I thought it had been turned inside out or something, it was gross.
I just put the thing in a garbage bag and put it in the outside bin. What else to do. I’m not going to smash it or throw it down the well or anything. But it is a rather terrible way to go. I had a bit of difficulty eating lunch and I felt a slight existential dread that in a future life or hell I’d be punished in a similar way. But what else to do. Mouse was unclean and leaving little shits everywhere. I’m still finding them around. I do wish there was a better mousetrap.
