Naughty baby porcupine! She took her toys and drawings to bed and played alone when everyone else in the house was fast asleep. She was only asleep after a bottle of milk!
The moment I switched on the lights in the kitchen, I caught the glimpse of a mouse escaping through a gap under the back door. What!!??? A mouse in my kitchen??? Since when??? No! This can't be happening to me. I don't hate mice but I don't like them in my house either!
So the next day I told my husband of the discovery and we both agreed that mice could carry diseases and shouldn't be let into the house again.We were also worried that the mouse might have its offsprings somewhere in the house without us knowing it. So we bought a mouse trap to catch it. When night came, I put some leftover of a fried fish as bait in the trap and left it exactly in front of the gap under the door.
As expected, the mouse made a night visit again into the kitchen and fell for the bait.
When morning came, the whole house, especially my baby porcupine, was so excited to see the mouse in the trap. The mouse was kind of cute. Yes, he's cute. *slap forehead* Not adorable, of course, but not ugly either.
