mouse in the house

we got a stove a while ago that was sitting in our garage for a few weeks (stupid landlord) anyway when we got it a mouse ran out and that was the last we saw of him... (i didn't see him that day, i was in the other room i was going to catch it that day but they chased it out of the closet where it was trapped and it went under the cupboards and probably into the floor)

and so i saw him today and he is black! he is super cute!! anyway he is now in our stove... in the vents.. i guess thats what they are...

i made a trap for him (jar with peanut butter and really smelly chips and a ladder)

I hope hope hope it works, but i am wondering if it is a wild mouse as i have never seen a wild black mouse just the mousy brown ones and i have lived many years on a farm and seen many mice... could it be a pet mouse let out? if so is he too wild to keep or too domestic to let out, we have lots of cats around!! i wouldn't mind keeping him even if he isn't ever tame enough to hold (i don't know how the roomies would feel about that but i don't care )

I probably wouldn't keep him even if it is a let loose pet. It's been in the wild so it could have or be carrying wild disease. It also could have been let loose long ago, which would make it wild tempered. Plus putting it in a cage after living in the wild, isn't very fair. I once caught two 2week old wild mice, even after a month I couldn't tame them, so back outside they went!

i'll post pics later they aren't very good though i just let her out in the woods, its illegal to take anything from there, or let your pet off leash there so it should be good, there are raspberries and what have you there as well
