Well he was taking them way out in the field. and letting them loose. He started to get wise when after the snow was on for a while he left one loose and it made a b-line for the house and beet him back.

Some models have the optional "bird" and "mole" features, but they're hard to predict from just reading the box.

Many, many colors and other cosmetic features are available.

They have a new one on the market. At least to me. Its a 4X4 inch pad with sticky stuff on it. A little too expensive for a mouse but he walks into it and gets stuck. How you get him off is your problem. I tried and got a finger, then a thumb, then a palm, them my forearm stuck. Took gasoline to get the jelly off. By the time I got the mouse off, it was torn in half, no skin, gu-s all over the pad. The other pad had 3 mice in it. I told em they were on their own!

Just ask your vet or animal shelter about CATS.
