In the post today (the post man in fact waking me up when I had a splitting headache) was a humane mouse trap Karen bought online yesterday because - as you will have already suspected - we have a mouse! Maybe multiple mice. The "sightings" so far have included me seeing a medium sized very fluffy mouse run (SPRINT) from under Karen's suitcase in the living room to the behind the sofa. Karen caught the last part of this, getting her very panicked, and more so when hearing loads of scuffling under her bed last night. This morning I awoke to squeaking directly under my bed. I have actually found myself seeing (also usually holding) garden mice at least once a week - thank you darling cats - so they don't phase me so much! (Although city mice I'm sure are much more susceptible to diseases and suchlike) If I saw a rat in the flat, that would be a different issue entirely haha.

The best option for a box trap like this is to position it close to a wall and have the entrances to the box near the wall. Mice are apparently suspicious and more likely to enter this way! Also, contrary to popular belief, they like chocolate more than cheese (As does Karen who gets to eat the rest of it)
