We caught the mouse...well one of them. My roommate put it in a baggie and put it up on the RA's office door with a note. One of the RAs came to are door and said he had to file an in incident report becouse of the mouse on the door. Maybe something will get done. {Wishful thinking} I sent an email to the RA and to the housing department with pics of mouse shit and signs that are kitchen was not cleaned like we were told it would be....They did nothing. I got an email back letting me know that they got my email and that it was very important to them and that they would get back to me soon. {Lies!} For as much as me and my roommates are paying for this place we need something. A refund on rent {which I know will never happen} ...something.

The Black Plague...thats all I'm saying.

I'm going to send the email to housing again...this time with the pic of the mouse in the bag on the RAs door. Lets see if they respond this time.

If they don't respond by May 1st I'm going to report it to the California Department of Public Health.

Looks like we are not the only ones.

Eternal resting place

It's gross that there are rats/mice in the dorm! but I do have to add:

"The misconception about rats being disease causing came originally from the black plague. The truth about that was that the living conditions of the HUMANS was so bad that the rats got infected fleas from the humans living around them and the fleas jumped off of the rats onto other people.

The rats were so prevalent during plague times because the people were so dirty. People used to throw straw on the floor of their castles and homes to "clean them" and didn't really clean up the old straw they'd just pile more on and throw food scraps on the floor, piss on the floor, etc etc and the rats moved in...
"
and



"There isnt much we can catch from rats at all other than pink eye and ringworm. We can pass it to our rats and vice versa.

People have stereotyped rats for centuries as these disease infested, vile animals when in reality, they are cleaner than dogs and cats alike, spending most of their time cleaning and washing themselves. They also can be litter box trained and many rats have been known to actually pick up their own feces and toss it out of the cage because they dont want it in their cage!! "

Granted that last bit was about pet mice and not wild... but still. While it's gross they're there as long as they don't get in your food you should be okay!!

Hope they fix it soon!
