The Mouse In My House Is A Welcome Guest


Mikaylie Sosnowski, Staff Writer

I’ve never understood why people are afraid of mice! As far as wild animals go, they’re the best one to have in your house. Snakes I get being scared of: they’re creepy, crawly, and they’ve got no arms or legs. Freaky! Spiders I definitely understand: they’ve got too many legs, too many eyes, and they always wind up in places they’re not supposed to be. Like, buddy what are you doing on my walls and ceiling? Get down from there! I can even understand being freaked out by rats with their beady eyes. But mice? They’re just little babies! How could you ever be afraid of such a soft little critter? No one wants animals invading their house, but at least mice are cute.
