Open the door; hmmm, doesn't smell too fresh in here. Maybe I should leave the door op--AAAAAUUUUGGGHHH! There's a dead mouse on the floor!
This is freaking me out. Why do I find dead mice? Why dead? Yes, there was a live one last week, but this has happened before; right out in the open, I find a dead mouse. I know they have to die somewhere, but isn't it normal to go hide and do it out of sight? What are they dying from? Old age? I haven't put out any traps or poison, I haven't tried to kill them. The kids walk around the house dropping crumbs everywhere - I'm wondering if the damn mice are EATING themselves to death!
