I didn't mind them, until we had some in our rental house and they managed to eat DSDs easter chocolates that were on top of the fridge!
On the plus side, we have 5 indoor cats and no mice inside the house.
Though I went down to feed the chickens a couple of months ago and I picked up the chook food container and a mouse ran out form under it and I was on the chicken coop with the door closed with the mouse and I screamed blue murder and DF ran over and I said there was a mouse and he laughed at me
Since then I've refused to refill their food LOL Mum or DF do it! Took me weeks just to go back in to check for eggs!
