OMG!!!!!!!!! I smooshed it all over my treadmill :(

Three days ago I found a mouse outside that looked like it was dying. I am a sucker for anything small and fury and brought it inside in a cat kennel so it could die peacefully. It got better, apparently, because my daughter opened the cage to see how it was doing and it ran out into my house.....

Last night, I saw my polydactyl cat carrying it in her mouth.... this made my daughter feel even worse for accidentally letting it out. I reassured her it was okay while secretly hoping that my cat would just eat it, all of it, so I did not have to find a half eaten mouse on my floor/couch/bed.

I saw the cats looking at the treadmill tonight. So I went over, turned the treadmill on one side- looked, saw nothing, turned it on the other side, looked, saw nothing, turned it back on the other side....nothing.... so I turned it on slowly thinking the mouse would run out. My treamill tread is torn on one side, so I thought nothing of the bumping sounds it made.... I heaved the treadmill on its side again and saw some sort of curly red things..........................

Took me a minute to figure out, I had just smashed the mouse in my treadmill. I got nauseaus. I could not breathe. I felt awful as I was sure I killed it (my best friend told me it was probably already dead otherwise it would have run out the numerous times I rotated the 100lb treamill side to side).

I fished it out with a fishing net covered in a plastic bag and have since "buried" it in the trash outside. But, oh man, do I feel awful. Awful awful awful awful awful. I just keep telling myself it was already dead (of dehydration) and that if it wasn't then I just saved it from an agonizing cat death.

Lesson learned? Yeah. Don't open the door to a mouse unless I am outside.

It is funny and awful at the same time... I am positive I am going to mouse hell when I die at 117.
