What are the best traps/methods of getting rid of mice or for preventing them from entering a home in the first place? I live on the second floor of a really old home, and there are no other people currently living in the building.
My cats are friggin' useless. Even after carrying my large male in from another room and showing him the mouse, he turned around and went back to his food. My little girl cat got scared and ran away, only to return and have the mouse literally walk between her paws and do nothing. At one point, she had the mouse in her mouth, but then she let it go.
Thankfully, it got caught between the pages of a book and Haight beat it to death with a broom. My cats are clueless, and they are still searching around the house for it.
Anyway, I need some tricks because right now I'm paranoid, and I keep thinking that I am seeing mice run across the floor.
