Another mousie last night

Pirate Mouse
Found it as I was heading to bed. In the large trap. In the light of my flashlight I saw that it was a luxurious brown, as sleek as an otter, with huge black eyes like those of a baby seal. It didn't want to leave, and as I tipped the opened trap up, it scampered uphill. I finally turned the light off and waited, and it got brave and moved to the grass.
Similar in appearance to one the spouse let go, but seems to have a different size, personality, and motion.

Oh dear. I stepped (not too hard) on a chippie brought into a friends house by their cat a few years ago. Hope your chippie has the good sense to go somewhere else.

When I have the small "single serving" traps, and there's some daylight, I walk them about a mile away into a park -- but it being so dark and late when I found this one, I drove it about two and a half miles away. I'm hoping I never see the same mouse twice, because if that starts to happen, I'll resort to the snap traps, which would make me very sad.

Margaret, will you remind me of the brand name of these live traps you're using, please? I'm having a hard time facing baiting the snap traps this fall....

The one I've been having better luck with is the Victor Tin Cat -- an example of which is here: http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=10051&productId=202072073
