Without question, this is the most intense mousetrap I've ever seen. It's truly a beast straight out of mouse mythology--a legendary monster that adult mice use to teach their children the dangers of gluttony--Mousargon the Seducer.

Insultingly, the bait is not even real cheese, but a "cheese fragrance", wafting from the belly of the beast. Confronted with this unnatural scenario, the mouse must choose between two opposing instincts: its well-justified fear of sharp-fanged housecats and its unquenchable addiction to smelly cheese.

Oh, foolish vermin! In the accompanying patent illustrations the mouse falls for the bait. Against better judgment, it crawls right into the gaping jaws of it's mortal enemy. Once in the cat's abdomen, the jaws shut and all hope is lost. A vacuum sucks the mouse into the collection chamber where the mouse is promptly suffocated. And then, just to scare the remaining crap out of any mice witnesses, the cat's eyes emit a menacing, post-digestion glow.

Mice: 0, Creepy Exterminating Robots: 1.

First of all, mice don't like cheese and would not be lured by real or fake cheese smell. Secondly, I think the smell of dead mouse would probably discourage any second mice from coming near. We used to use this device that had a tube with a spring loaded trigger. The mouse would walk on it and get thrown into a chamber. We would later let them out in a field. I think it was called Have a Heart (because it didn't kill the mice). It did work. Just don't try using smelly cheese for bait. Use something slightly sweet smelling (maybe chocolate).

does this come in bigger sizes/alternative fragrances ?

LAQ | Dec 6, 2005 6:02 AM
Okay, is that like the reall inventor. Anywhen, creepy robots are neat.

Rather than set 3 or 4 cats loose in a apartment building for a day (strays would be good), lets have 3,000 people buy a mechanical cat. Little children will be attracted by the cheese fragrance (is there refills? or is it perpetual?) and be sucked in, jabbed at with a needle, suffocated, duplicated, and flipped over.

" A vacuum sucks the mouse into the collection chamber where the mouse is promptly suffocated. And then, just to scare the remaining crap out of any mice witnesses, the cat's eyes emit a menacing, post-digestion glow" and then i would like to see it regurgitate the mouse remains into some kind of drug in a capsal form that would be super.

Jade | Dec 3, 2005 7:01 PM
I like this because I'm deathly afraid of mice and I can.t pick them up. If this looks cute, I can act like it's a decoration in my apartment and no one will know it's a mousetrap. I would get a cat but I.m allergic and plus it's not allowed in my building. I want one if it's not too big or too expensive.

Mr. Webster Knowitall | Nov 3, 2004 4:01 AM
Dear Mr. December 15, 2005 - 11:39AM,(a.k.a, Hateful) I understand your mental anguish. It's painful to see your fellow rats, and rodents being loued by the smell of cheese. Then, devoured by the Portable Electrical Mouse Trap. Don't worry Mr. Hateful, the rodents and your fellow rats didn't feel a thing. Buy the way, they did't go to hell. They went into the garbage without being seen.

This is Pure Bullshit | Nov 2, 2004 3:01 PM
I hate this idea i think it is the stupidist thing that i have ever seen it should go to hell.

CHARLES JORDAN | Nov 2, 2004 1:01 AM
DEAR MR. SPIFFO, (APR 28, 2005 12:26 AM) THINK ABOUT HAVING TO PRUCHASE FOOD/WATER FOR A REAL CAT EACH DAY. BUY CAT PRODUCTS TO MAINTAIN THE PET. BY CAT LITTER, TOYS, CLEANING PRODUCTS, AND TAKE CARE OF THE PET EACH DAY, ETC. THE AMOUNT OF TIME PORTABLE ELECTRICAL MOUSETRAP TAKES TO CARE FOR IS 0. YOU PLUG IT IN AND FORGET IT. IT DO ALL THE WORK FOR YOU. THE COST IS MUCH LESS THAN HAVING A CAT.

JASON | Nov 1, 2004 12:01 AM
I'M LOOKING AT PORTABLE ELECTRICAL MOUSETRAP AND I REALIZE THROUGH MANY NEW ARTICALS THAT RATS ARE EVERYWHERE. EXAMPLE: NEW YORK CITY COUNCIL TARGETS VERMIN POPULATION EXPLOSION, (DAILY NEWS WED, AUGUST 6, 2003); PESKY RODENTS TAKE OVER BIG CITY PROJECTS, (NEW YORK POST WED JULY 5, 2000); YAHOO NEWS TOP STORIES HEADLINES, N.M. WOMEN CONTRACTS BUBONIC PLAGUE, MICE SPREAD ASTHMA IN INNER CITY AREAS, RODENT BORNE VIRUS STUDY-MICE MAY BE LINK TO BREAST CANCER. THE LIST GOES ON AND ON. MY POINT IS, WHY THE MICE AND RAT PROBLEMS IN THIS COUNTRY NOT TAKEN MORE SERIOUSLY. COULD ANYONE PLEASE TELL ME WHERE I PURCHASE A PORTABLE ELECTRICAL MOUSETRAP?

MONA | Oct 31, 2004 11:01 PM
I THINK PORTABLE ELECTICAL MOUSETRAP IS A VERY GOOD IDEA. MOST PEOPLE DON'T WANT TO SEE OR TOUCH THE RODENT ONCE IT'S CAPTURED. USING A DISPOSABLE BAG IS SANITARY. IT COULD BE GOOD FOR THE HOME AND FOOD BUSINESS.

CHARLES JORDAN, SR. | Dec 9, 2004 4:01 PM
DEAR PATENTLY SILLY, I'M THE INVENTOR OF THE PORTABLE ELECTRICAL MOUSETRAP US6,865,843 B1 AND US D464,393 S. THE COMMENTS ABOUT MY INVENTION IS NOT SILLY. I THINK IT'S FUNNY. YOU SHOULD RE-NAME YOUR WEBSITE, PATENTLY COMEDY. PEOPLE LAUGHED AT THE IDEA TO BOTTLE WATER$ HA! BUY THE WAY, I PAID LAWYERS GOOD MONEY TO GET MY PATENTS APPROVED. I DON'T PAY PEOPLE WHO WALK A GOOD TALK. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO INVEST IN A FUTURE PRODUCT, (PORTABLE ELECTRICAL MOUSE TRAP) PLEASE SEND REQUEST TO: CHARLES JORDAN, SR. POST OFFICE BOX 22761 BROOKLYN, N.Y. 11201

OMG, they just keep getting funnier. I'm about to die laughing.

peterg22 | Dec 7, 2004 5:00 AM
It may be a "cheese fragrance", but only in *human* terms. How do we know if it smells like cheese to a *real* mouse ? If they haven't researched that properly they might just as well give up now ...

Mike Garrett | Dec 6, 2004 4:00 AM
Er...why would a mouse try to crawl into what he thinks is a cat's mouth. Why not make it look like a place a mouse would want to be, a giant chunk of cheese, something like that. Is ANYBODY with me on this?

GUMMIBARE | Dec 5, 2004 2:02 AM
Everybody sing.....3 blind mice.See how they run.....

Malevolution | Dec 5, 2004 5:02 AM
I am amused that, in the final illustration, it shows two mice in its, uh, rectum? I suppose we are to assume that the previously entrapped have perished of asphyxiation, and their cries cannot be heard by future victims. By the way: It's "mousetrap," not "moustrap."

Ted M. | Dec 5, 2004 5:02 AM
so i'd like to go ahead and come out against the majority opinion on this one. from a mere amateur sketch, it's clear that the product is not only suited to catch mice, but it could suck up car keys and coins and receipts from minor purchases, as well as a whole range of unmentioned mouse-sized rodents. and it could then separate them into their own special compartments, and you would always know where to find everything, and you wouldn't have to worry about small change getting mixed in with rodent carcasses. it will make a very stylish handbag, and you'll draw the envy of your friends for all the attention you get whenever you pull your busuiness card out from under the cat's tail. this design is perfect for a pez dispensor. i'm sorry, but i fear you will all soon be eating your words.

tiny | Dec 5, 2004 4:01 AM
How many mice could a kittykat hold, if a kittykat could hold mice? Why not an incerator built in? Burn the mice, smoke exits rear "vent" on kat

Spiffo | Dec 5, 2004 4:00 AM
It looks like a cat, it eats mice like a cat, you have to deal the mouse remains, and it'll cost you a fortune in batteries... Just buy a cat already!!!

Tampa Tom | Dec 5, 2004 3:01 AM
Oh, Dear GOD! It's ALIVE! Rhodents of the world, we must unite to shay the evil Mouseargon the Seducer! What's wrong with snap traps?
