  1. I didn't have foil so I used cheese……….now I've got a very angry mouse speaking in tongue running around the jar…………….I was able to throw a shoe box over it the other day but yesterday when I woke up it had chewed a hole through the box. Now I have a kitchen knife missing in my knife block and I'm not sure how to get rid of this mouse.
