Mice…

Mice…

Okay, here's my problem. I have mice. Now generally, I don't mind the little guys. They usually keep to themselves and hang out in my extra bathroom (never the kitchen, nor are they getting into my food, and there's nothing in that bathroom that I can think would attract them); but they seem to have quadrupled in the last month or so and while I don't mind one or two, I don't really want a mouse habitat. I do have 4 excellent feline mousers (as the bits of mice I keep finding attest to ewwwww) so poisons are rather out of the question. I'm looking for any suggestions to discourage the mice from wanting to hang out, as opposed to outright killing them off. The idea of dead mice in my walls or crawl space is too gross to contemplate. I do live in the country, so I realize that getting rid of them entirely is unrealistic but anyone have some suggestions how to thin the population? Thanks!
