    Ok but not until hubby gets home!!! Do not want to find what ever it may be alone! I know that sounds funny but for some reason I just don't, lol. And I can handle a lot when I need to, but I just don't wannaaaaaaaaaaa!

    I am thinking if its mice, behind the appliances will be the first place to look. Stove, fridge, freezer, washer and dryer. All places to hide. Just hope I do not find anything bigger than a mouse!!

    You big ole 'fraidy cat! LOL

    I knew I had mice, although I never actually saw any. Once I got the rodentia under control, I started finding where they'd hidden food all around the house.

    When I lived in SE Washington up in the dryland wheat country, the mice are really bad. When I packed up to move I must of found 50 lbs of dog food and mouse poison stuffed in various things, the bottom of my dresser where I stored my summer clothes, boots I hadn't worn, closet corners, behind the washing machine...everywhere! LOL!

    Can you buy some sort of a video recorder you could set up?
    I opened our mud room door to go into the garage one night and there was a possum sitting on the top step - he ran off though, seemed more nervous of me than I was of him
    Can you fit a walk in trap over the opening?
    It could be a whole herd of mice (not sure what you call a group of mice) Your kitchen could be party central for the local mouse population - or rats!!!
    Squirrels are another possibility, my dogs ignore them for some reason and my father in law woke up one night to find one sitting on his bed - it had come in through a small top window that was open a crack - they are really smart and very agile, can climb pretty much anywhere

    Yes, we can do all those things. I think we will buy traps (can always use them out here on the ranch anyway) and a stake out for tonight and go from there. I would rather catch what ever it is as opposed to keeping it out.

    Can't believe no one said it yet.
    It's OBVIOUSLY a poltergeist. Like Paranormal Activity.
    You know that tickle you felt? *whispers* That wasn't your hubby....
