I do, the furry beast brings gifts. and then loses them in the house.

At least I get the brownie points from the missus for eviction!

Don't need a mousetrap as I have the furry four-legged kind that purrs.
My moustrap doesn't puke up furballs on my expensive comforter!! Or lick it's butt and then come 'round to lick my face! My moustrap ALSO isn't afraid of the vacuum cleaner!!

Yep...I sure do love my mousetrap!!:p

The batteries in my wireless Mightly Mouse have lasted since May... and still going. It is not used heavily daily. Compared to my old Apple wireless mouse this is a very long battery life.

My wireless MM has great battery life. I replace the batteries once a month–I use rechargables.

Yeah, about 3 months from the Lithium ones that come with the mouse. 2 months for Duracell and and about a month for 2500mAh rechargeables. Doesn't sound much compared with good usb mice, but Bluetooth devices can really suck the juice. In my opinion, if you want a Bluetooth for your mac, the Apple one is the best way to go. Longing lasting batteries, smoothest motion and no wake up from sleep delay. Ooh, and if you're short of batteries, the BT mighty mouse can run from just ONE battery. I love mine!

Not to worry. The Mighty Mouse only needs one battery to operate it. The second battery is for more functionality so with 2 batteries the lifespan of the batteries should be a few months. :)
