I just returned home to find a glue trap stuck to Hatchet's back foot!
I had a few glue traps in the kitchen cupboard,because we have had some wild mice.Nothing else worked to get rid of the mice.
Now I am AGAINST glue traps,but everything else I tried,didn't work! So I tried them as a last resort.Of course if I found a mouse I would release it.I truly am against these things and am a hypocrite for using them.But after this,I WILL NOT use them EVER again!
Anyway this is the FIRST time Hatchet got into the cupboards.
I panicked when I seen it on his foot and thought we had an emergency vet trip coming up.In my panic I poured "Palmolive" dish soap all over the trap and Hatchet's paw.Poor boy was scared to death and it probably hurt,but I gently pulled and because of all the dish soap it started coming loose.Hatchet then started freaking out,so I had to scruff him and after some more gentle tugging,the trap came off.To my relief! Hatchet was a good sport for the most part tho.Was even purring abit.
Poor Hatchet is now scared a little,but otherwise fine.I checked his paw and it is not cut open or anything.There is just abit of soap there,which I am gonna wash off now in a moment.My poor boy.
This was a close call and so I threw ALL of the glue traps out.I wrapped them in like 3 bags and then threw them out.And I will never use them again.I don't care if there are wild mice around,as long as my babies don't get hurt.
