I have found this very interesting and intelligent idea while wandring on facebook. By creatively using toilet paper roll to trap mouse in a plastic bin from where it cannot escape. After trapping the mouse you can decide to free it somewhere or just give your cat a treat ;)
Here what the poster posted
Whoohoo!!! My mousetrap worked!! Just took a little patience!! Use peanut butter smeared on the inside of the toilet paper roll. He/she goes in the tube to get to the peanut butter, the roll/mouse fall into the tall trash can....then release! Voila!!
