I just killed an animal

A mouse was sneaking into our drawers and chewing things up and pooping on things, so I've been setting mousetraps (the put cheese here, break neck there kind) all week trying to catch it. J clued me into using peanut butter for the bait since it will cause more contact on the trigger, and voila, dead mouse in our drawer. Mission accomplished.

However, I have never intentionally killed anything with 4 legs and fur. I still feel bad about that squirrel I ran over in high school. I'm that guy. So even though it's a mouse and even though it was pooping all over our stuff, I felt hugely guilty as I bundled it up to send it to mouse heaven. Poor little bastard. I hope I don't have to do that again for a while.
