I used to live in Brooklyn and saw the occasional mouse. You can get cruelty-free mouse deterrents if you want to go that route. They just emit a sound that they can hear but you can’t when the mouse goes near the sensor, which you place near a doorway or something. They’re electromagnetic or ultrasonic.

Haha…. I live in NYC too and we had a little Mickey run across the floor the other day… on the 5th floor. I don’t understand that part. I thought I had him trapped for when Darling Husband came home, but he got out of it somehow. I hate the idea that there is a mouse (or MICE!) in my apartment. We’ve put out traps and cleaned a lot, but we haven’t seen anything else.

I feel this way about bugs but not about mice. I mean, they’re furry, they’re mammals, and they have absolutely no desire to attack a human unprovoked and even if you harrassed one, its ultimate defense would be to nip your finger in a way not unlike getting that finger stuck in a clothespin (not that I’d recommened it, as they might be sick).

They’re not as cute as kittens or anything but if you get over how startlingly fast they can scurry sometimes, maybe you could see the cute and benign factors too?

@joya_aspera:  I feel the same way about them. I don’t want them in my house or apartment, but I don’t want to hurt them either so I use the cruelty-free electromagnetic mouse/rat deterrents.

We get little field mice towards the end of the year when it gets cold outside. There was one that ALWAYS ran into the bathroom when my fi was pooping.

So funny.
