After four weeks (and four grisly beheadings), we have another mouse wandering about. It's remarkable how the pattern sustains itself; just when you're certain that the battle is in the last throes, it is re-joined.
(Where have I heard that before?)
Given this new challenge, Robert seems unimpressed with the current technology and has offered up some his own. Behold, then, the VerminimizerTM!
The main housing is the handle for a roll of Caution tape (in keeping with the hazard theme), and the cardboard trap is smeared with peanut butter. The bait is augmented by gluing on an ATM receipt and an AAA battery (presumably to serve as the allure of money and power).
According to Robert, the mouse is seduced by this triple threat and ultimately trapped in the roll until Daddy takes a walk with it to the park and sets it free.
Don't get any ideas, because our patent is totally pending.
