Build a better mousetrap

I think I've mentioned it before, but Bret has a cat. Her name is Priscilla. She was a stray that came around about a year ago, and now rules the house. I never thought she liked me very much, just tolerated me--then again, I'm used to a dog that occasionaly spends her time just gazing at me with adoration.

But tonight I have been proven wrong. She brought me my very own mouse. Into the house. STILL ALIVE. I shrieked when it got loose, and have spent the last hour alternating between perching on various pieces of furniture and calling people to come help me.

I finally gave up. I think it has crawled into the recliner. The living room is in shambles. I tipped over the couches to keep it from going under there and there are kitchen chairs in strategic places to leap onto in case the mouse begins to desire my toes.

I had to lock the cat in the bathroom because she wouldn't leave the recliner alone and I don't want her to catch it and then kill it on the carpet, but then she figured out how to open the door (not kidding).

Bret is getting here soon and then HE can deal with it. I bet he shrieks when it skitters across the floor. ha.
