Sure sounds like a mouse. If your kitchen sink is enclosed by cabinets bait a trap with bacon and put it under the sink. Tape the door shut real good (so your pets can't pry it open). Your cat and dog can't get to it but the mouse will find a way in there. Hope this helps. (02/21/2008)

I, too am TERRIFIED of mice, but had them in my house this year. I tried D-CON's new "No View, No Touch" trap. They're round and come in a pack of 2. There's a small opening on the bottom where you bait them (I used peanut butter) then close the opening, turn the "trap" counter-clockwise and it's set! There are even arrows and markings on the top of the trap to to tell you when it is set and when you've caught the mouse. When you've caught the mouse, it is inside the trap and you NEVER see it. You just throw out the whole thing. I used it in January and caught the Nasty Bugger the first night! Even though they cost more than the regular wooden traps, they were more than worth it to me.

I used plastic traps similar to the old wooden ones. They are found at home stores. Use a little peanut butter smeared on the trap instead of cheese, the mice have to work to get it off and they love the taste. Remember to keep it away from pets so they are not harmed by the trap. (02/26/2008)
