I'm being stalked

I have stalkers at my office. Or, as they are more commonly known, mice. I was sitting at my desk yesterday and saw something gray and dust bunny-looking under my desk on the mousetrap (which was still there from the last time I had mice in my office). I had Scott check it out, and he told me I'd better leave.

Needless to say, I've been having the heebie-geebies for last 24h. Why do they insist on always hanging out around me? I have kept food in plastic containers in here, and never leave food garbage lying around, so I think it must be the warmth from the equipment that draws them to this room. Why, though, do they always end up near my desk instead of elsewhere?

I have somewhat seriously considered suggesting we have an office cat. I have also given some thought to borrowing Zed, as he is a good mouser. ;)

It could be worse... they are only in my office.

Well your office wouldn't be the first in SJ to have an official mouser. There are several actually - including the city market. Although the market one is unofficial. :)

Kaylee is probably more efficient than Zedd seeing as she's not huge. She is also less timid than him - he hates being in the carrier. She's also a mighty fine hunter. ^_^
