We found a mouse in our house. I discovered it in the middle of the night when I went into the kitchen to get something to drink. The little guy was standing in the middle of the floor, just looking at me as if to say, "Yeah, whuddya gonna do about it?" I told my family all about our little visitor, and how I planned on going to the hardware store to buy a trap. But my little girl would hear nothing of it. She didn't want to hurt the cute little creature. Many of the mousetraps rely on glues or poisons and she didn't want it killed. Catch an release, she kept telling me. She wanted to call him Mickey. I swear, sometimes I think Walt Disney did more harm than good. But there was no way I was going to let this creature breed in our home. No chance. But my daughter devised a back up plan, and I gave her three nights for it to work.
The next morning, she woke me up and showed me her invention. She rigged a pair of her girls capri leggings (like these) to the hole under the counter, and put a piece of cheese in the ankle area, which she had tied in a knot. It was both original and cliche. I didn't give it any chance of working. Would you have? But I didn't want to discourage her, so I applauded her ingenuity and told her that if she caught the rodent, I would buy her a new pair of capri leggings. That day, we all left the house and went out about our business. And when we returned, what did we find? The critter was tangled up in the capri leggings?! I couldn't believe it. My daughter then took it outside and released it, where undoubtedly, it will find its way back inside. But at least it's out for now.
So I made good on my promise to buy her a new pair of capri leggings for girls. We did an internet search and found the cutest company based in Los Angeles, California. They don't just make girls capri leggings, they manufacture all types of clothing for girls. I couldn't believe how cute all their stuff was. Even cuter than the mouse my girl rescued from certain death! LOL! Anyway, we got the girls capri leggings in the mail a few days later, and were all very pleased with it. High quality, great customer service, and all of their garments are made in the USA. What more can you ask for? Do check them out. Whenever I find a new company that I'm happy about, I try to give them a shout out on my blog. Shop here!
