Houston, we have a problem.

We are in the process of deciding if this kitty is the solution.




We live in a 70+ year old farm house and that means mice move in when the weather turns cold.
Brian put traps around the house and basement but if that doesn't work we might have to get a cat. The kids would be thrilled and surprisingly I think this little kitty would be too. He showed up on our porch last week and I couldn't help but put a dish of dogfood out for him. I figured it wouldn't hurt anything to give a stray some food. "What did you expect?" Brian said when the cat returned every day since for more handouts.

When he tried to get in the house a couple days ago I realized he wasn't just a stray. He's been around humans and is very friendly. Could he be the solution to our mouse problem?
We're going to give the traps a few more days and if they don't pan out we might be giving Houston (Huey for short) a tour of our home....

  1. Our last house was 80 years old, and we also found out we had mice. But, our lame-o cat only caught them and played with them, which was even worse... She'd drag them into the bedrooms and chase them around.. Hope this cat is a killer :)

Car campers and backpackers typically have a completely different set of camping gear, but when you travel with three kids, a husband, a dog...
