My cat caught a couple mice in the past few months. She will not stop
staring at the kitchen stove now. I'm certain that my cat will give no
quarter to any mouse, regardless of how nice or smart it is. She is
ruthless.

Midnight has earned the right to sleep on the kitchen counter top. From
there he silently pounces on any unfortunate mouse that finds its way into
the house.
I am eagerly waiting for the day when my wife wakes up with one of his
trophies on her pillow...

Have you tried baiting the traps with the mothballs?

/I think that mouse taught my rabbits a thing or 2! We have rabbits that
ignore the electric fence and eat things in our vegetable garden. I
bought a pellet (Daisy air rifle) gun, and after hitting one rabbit in
the behind, all I have to do is get within 100' of one and they scatter.
We have tried live trapping them, but they have avoided the trap for
last 2 years. Wife makes a spray that includes tobasco hot pepper sauce
that they stay away from./

The best bait for mousetraps is peanut butter.

I second that. Mice seem to REALLY like peanut butter. When I lived in
a place with a mouse problem, I used to use live-capture traps because
of several incidents where the "normal" traps injured but did not kill
the mice. I used about a teaspoon worth of peanut butter as bait in
each trap. I would typically find the mice in the trap, very alert and
staring at me through the plastic, having eaten the entire dollop of
peanut butter. I guess things don't really scale like this, but that
would be like me eating several jars of peanut butter in one sitting!
I would take the mice at least a mile away from my house and release
them outside.

I also found that I could only re-use the traps if I thoroughly washed
them out. If I didn't do a good job, other mice would not go into the
trap. I theorized that they could smell the scent from the other mouse
and it made them suspicious of the trap. I also often found that they
were able to extract the bait without getting stuck in the trap unless
it was pushed all the way to the back end of the trap. They struck me
as amazingly smart little creatures for their size.

You should put an optic sensor that triggers the door to close :-)

BTW: I would give the mouse trapped to cats so the food for the pet is free
:-) (well, only a spoon of peanut butter of course)

Hopefully the mouse hasn't eaten something it shouldn't have before
you feed it to your cat.

True, ture. However, my sister's cat always catches something while hunting
outside, so it can happen anyway. BTW I have almost forgot that it has
already been happened to him -- thankfully then the doctor could save him
but it was a fortnight fight as he had to drink plenty of water and for some
reason he did not want it. We had to force him with a syringe.
