We’ve probably all been there. Either you’re a night owl and saw a little guy scurry past you in the kitchen when you turned the light on. Or perhaps you opened up your kitchen cabinet to find a trail of droppings. Yuck! For me, my beloved Maine Coon cat woke me at 1 in the morning to present the half-eaten corpse of his little mouse prey. My mom recently visited with me for a few weeks only to return home to find new occupants.

Common Sense Home gives us a bunch of tips to ward off the little rodent guys. The only thing they didn’t mention was getting a cat. Because that definitely works too!
