Gross, but we have mice in our attic! Last fall one made the bad decision to come into the house, and was promptly executed by the girls shock. I haven't seen any since then, but I have seen their poop.

I've been researching all natural options and came across this:

http://www.earthkindstore.com/servlet/the-5/mouse%2Crat%2Cr odent%2Crepellent%2Crepellant%2Chow-to-get-rid/Detail

The ingredients are:

Balsam fir needle essential oil
Corn cob chips ( plant cellulose fiber)
Essential oils of spanish rosemary
Lavender
Fir
Clary sage
Cedar wood
Lemon
Grapefruit
Eucalyptus
Patchouli

Are these safe for my kitties? I will put this in my attic, so it's not as if the girls will be laying in it. I guess it's possible they may breath it if it's in the attic though.

Thoughts? Or maybe you have other tried and true, cat safe mice repellents?

Thanks!!!

Don't know if Alex's Mom is on today, but according to her web site IBDKITTIES essential oils are toxic to cats. Noticed several of them in the list you gave. You might want to look a little further.smilesmile
