    help, anyone?

    Are you sure it wasn't a [SIZE="5"]rat [/SIZE]?

    Is it outside? If so leave it.

    If its inside you need to kill it or catch it. If you leave it in the house you may never catch it.

    Use the box stick and string method if you dont want to go near it.

    First put a newspaper on the floor then get a long piece of string and tie it to a stick (or whatever, you could use a fork) then prop a cardboard box (on the newspaper) up with it so the string is at the bottom of the stick. Now put some food, choc is good under the box then move as far away as the string will allow.
    When the mouse goes under the box for the food pull the string and the box will fall trapping the mouse.
    Then just carefully pick up the newspaper and box and take them outside.
    Dont worry about letting it out outside as it will chew its way through the box to freedom.

    Are you just on the pull!:p

    PS if the mouse is at the door and Im guessing its locked then you are going to have to go near it to let someone in!

    A rat can chew through a door quicker than a mouse!

    Mice are small and have hair on there tails, rats are bigger and dont have hair on there tails.

    .......what's that noise?

    Do you have a letter box at the bottom of your door? If so get somebody to push it open from the outside and the mouse will escape through it.

    Ps may I suggest they open it with a broom handle so they can keep there distance.

    Just get him to come in through a window.

    Ps Still think the stick and box is your best bet. It does work I have done it myself when tagging wild birds.
    Pps You will have a great story to tell your friends.

    As long as it didn't see which room you went into you'll be ok

    i feel so stupid though coz my sister said she thought she saw one a while ago and we got next door to come see.who happens to be a builder for this appartment and he said that because of the plot of land opposite is being developed theres mice attracted to our blocks and he said he seen loads at night outside the appartment. it doesnt really help that we r near a train track either. the guy couldnt find anything, he checked the kitchen and suggested putting talcum powder around the edges on the floor so if there is anything it will leave prints in the talc, now for a week theres been nothing so i told my sister she shouldnt wind me up like that, but she said she isnt and i didnt believe her

    I dont think it will stay out in the open that long it will go hide in a bit.

    So tomorrow you will need to buy some traps from a DIY shop but make sure the kids keep there fingers away.

    Ps sounds like you need to find a new man in your life.;-)
