I woke up at 2am to my daughter screaming bloody murder - a mouse was on her face trying to get to her tube feed! I guess they're low on food because we've been very careful to keep it inaccessible to mice, but good lord I never thought they'd go after my kids as a result.
Our 3 year old son has a feeding tube as well, and multiple food allergies. We're trying to not use his tube unless we have to, as we don't want to lose even more progress for eating as he gets older. So I gave him his formula in a sipper cup, which was then thrown across the room 3 times. And I gave him a gluten free hot dog, which was then dumped on the floor. Then the cup was thrown again. And breakfast was Kix, which I had to clean up off the floor as well. De-freaking-lightful.
One of my iguanas bit me, so he needs a new home. He's had an attitude problem since we got him. Our other is sweet as pie, so it's certainly not a lizard thing.
We put out a bunch of mice traps today and found wiring chewed on in the basement. I'm just grateful we have house insurance at the moment! And we learned that fox urine can repel them (they move away when predators are near), but we don't want to spray it and have them all move into our living areas...so we're leery. It's so strong that we don't want it throughout the house. We will use it if we need to though! Stupid mice!!!
On a positive note, I can pay for an exterminator to come on Monday because of all the holiday pay from work I got on Friday! Lol!!!
