Mouse in the Toilet, part 2
Of all the search engine terms people have used to find my blog, clearly my favorite is: “live mouse in my toilet bowl.” Apparently, there is someone else out there with this problem. Hope they’ve got it taken care of by now. I wonder if my post was of any help.
Though it probably wasn’t, because I didn’t tell the full mouse story.
The night that I discovered the mouse in my toilet, I had come home with a tiny kitten I found in town. REALLY tiny. I knew I had a mouse problem, so I thought it would be helpful to have a cat around.
Though, not being a cat person and forgetting that cats hate water, what did I do when I found the mouse in my toilet? I tossed the kitten in the toilet along with the mouse.
FAIL. The kitten freaked out, so I took it out and put it in my bathtub (yes, I know, this is the point where you’re all thinking I’M the freak here) and somehow fished out the mouse and put it in the bathtub along with the kitten. I swear, the kitten wasn’t that much larger than the mouse. This was a BIG mouse. Or maybe it was a rat.
In any case, the mouse/rat started chasing the kitten around the circular bathtub, until the kitten got a clue and stopped, turned around, and started chasing the mouse/rat. Until the kitten caught the mouse/rat, and had a feast. It ate the whole thing. Crunchy little bones and all.
So, if you ever end up with a mouse/rat in the toilet, I’d recommed just tossing it in the bathtub along with a cat. Should do the trick.
