4/5/2005: Toner mouse



Snopes says this one is unverified, but you gotta admit, it's not inconceivable. I've gone into offices in downtown areas where there were loads of mice, where going to the network wiring closet was an "iffy proposition". One guy in one place told me that they couldn't keep creamers around for their coffee, because the mice learned to chew through the top to get at the liquid inside. No word whether they required the true cream or whether the non-dairy creamer was sufficient.

My last workplace was infested with rats and weasels.






Elspode  Tuesday Apr 5 07:08 PM

I have mouse turds on my desk and in my desk drawers every day. I certainly isn't inconceivable that, if someone maybe dribbled a few crumbs in a printer, that a meece might be nosing around in it when it started printing.

Friend of mine does admin for a school, this isn't quite as good but it's close:

Bzzzzzzztt!!

*sniff* *SHNIFF* whew!

Yah. Happens. Had this page of the cellar open when my copier tech was present. showed him. he said, oh yeah. And the old ones that had serious drivetrains, with chains and gears and big ol' (warm) power supplies, caught this poor beast's poor cousin and ground him into goo.

blech.

Worked fine after a serious decontamination.



wolf  Tuesday Apr 5 09:12 PM

Oh my gods!! To see such a thing so recently past my own mouse trauma! Eeek!!!

Oh, wait. I spent the last two days looking at powerpoint slides of radiation burns and bubonic plague.

Cute little mousie. Hi mousie.

2 eyes. Optical mouse?

Snoozing Rat

My wife and I live in a warehouse in Toronto. Mice are common, but rats are not. We saw one, and it seemed to be using our bathroom sink as a watering hole. Leaky faucet...my bad. So occasionally a mouse dies in a wall, gets stinky for a couple of days, and if it's a small one, goes away quickly. The staink started, and we hoped for a quick small stink. Lasted a few days, but was wafting so we figgured...better than full on stink. My wife one day looked at our dog Taco (little dog) and asked where the rat was. He went under the couch, and came back out again. Repeated it twice. Looked under the couch, and there was dead rat boy! About half the size of our dog. So probably 4-5 lb rat.



wolf  Wednesday Apr 6 12:21 AM

I would have shot it on a shovel ...



Trilby  Wednesday Apr 6 10:30 AM

Cirocco--looks like you and the wife enjoy the Breakfast of Champions!
My hats off to you.



mrnoodle  Wednesday Apr 6 10:32 AM

"our" fox came up on the deck this morning. We looked at each other through the sliding glass door for about 10 seconds. Couldn't get to a camera in time to share though.

as you were.

Because she had to spend two days looking at powerpoint slides of radiation burns and bubonic plague, they have won.

Only a battle, not the war.

My friend had a mousie in the kitchen, set up a trap operation, but no caught mousie. Later, she got the wiff....he's dead somewhere. Near the door, behind the boots?, wha...? she found the bugger inside an upright empty wine bottle, in the recycling bin. It was a tight squeeze, but she thinks he died happy.



xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday Apr 6 11:48 PM

Maybe, but it was better when she just did it for fun.



Cirocco  Thursday Apr 7 07:24 AM

Perhaps the little guy went in skinny, and then got fat on wine, and could not get out. Not unlike the Gomery inquiry here in Canada.

wolf  Thursday Apr 7 11:22 AM

Your own, or in stores as an anti-status protest of some kind?



mrnoodle  Thursday Apr 7 01:05 PM

I heard on the radio the other day that yer standard field mouse can fit through a space the size of two stacked dimes. That seems unlikely, but I'm no expert.



wolf  Thursday Apr 7 01:26 PM

I'd always heard that they could squeeze through a half-inch gap. Two stacked dimes seems pretty extreme.



jaguar  Thursday Apr 7 01:29 PM

My own, I went though a phase of browsing gap stores and leaving little calling cards about the working conditions of their factories in the pockets but i haven't got any printed for a while.



wolf  Thursday Apr 7 01:49 PM

I have these business card sized cards that say "No Guns/No Money" which get left with businesses that post no firearms signs ... but that's about as far as I've gone.

(Most unusual place I've ever had to leave one is a sporting goods store that sells rifles and pistols ... and has a shooting range on the premises. I still haven't figured that one out.)



LabRat  Thursday Apr 7 02:39 PM

A lot of animals, bunnies, rodents, cats too I believe can fit anywhere their head will fit. As long as they can get their skull thru a hole, crack, whatever, the rest of their body can wiggle around to fit thru too. This past fall we had a pretty bad mouse problem in the lab, and I actually had one chew thru into a Rubbermaid continer that I had put tea bags in to keep them safe. Made me mad, those aren't cheap!! We caught 2 very fat meece, about 2 weeks apart, and the problems stopped.



glatt  Thursday Apr 7 02:53 PM

Reminds me of a story my dad told me once. He was at his physics lab, getting ready for a visit by some VIP, and there was a cricket somewhere in the lab, chirping away like crazy. Really loud. It just wouldn't do for this VIP to hear the cricket. The lab is full of expensive optics and electronics, so using some sort of spray poison to kill the hidden cricket was out of the question. It would get in the air and contaminate the optics. So my dad went over to a big tank of liquid nitrogen they had for cooling something, and filled up a foam coffee cup. He knew the cricket was somewhere behind/underneath one particular bench, so he threw a couple of cups full of the liquid nitrogen back there until the loud chirping stopped.



Griff  Thursday Apr 7 06:02 PM

His right ear appears to be missing in the second pic. not to mention the collagen injected Stewart Little lips

True, if the skull will fit, they're in your shit.

I think his right ear is between his head and the roller.


Sun_Sparkz  Tuesday Apr 12 10:19 PM

we had a mouse build a nest in our printer a few months ago here in the office. kept seeing the poop and not being able to find his escape root.

a few weeks after giving up setting traps, we go to change the cartridge and there is the evidence! mouse runs off never to be seen again and the printer still works fine.
