Not Smart Little Mousie

Last night, Hubby ordered pizza while Number One Son and I were at RE. I forgot the boxes were in there and turned on the oven. This normally wouldn't have been a big deal, but a mouse (or more) took out the pepper and parmesan packets, chewed them open and scattered cheese all over the pizza stones at the bottom of the oven. It also appears that the mouse mafia tried to carry the garlic butter off through the bottom of the oven where the gas elements are. Yup, melted plastic smoke bellowed out of the oven almost immediately. I guess I'll set a mouse trap in the oven, a very strange place for a mouse to hide out, especially in our house, where the oven gets used everyday. Hubby always makes a comment about how we feed our three cats and two dogs too much and they have forgotten a vital instict. Big Dog barks sometimes in the middle of the night, I guess it wasn't nature calling, just the scratching of a little mouse. If Little Dog were still alive, he'd bust out of his crate to get the mousie!
