1. The Room
The mouse can be killed or captured by us when chased and cornered in a room
of the house.
This technique however is rarely successful and keeps us from doing other (more beneficial) things.
Note: There are at least two major directions evolution can go: We can evolve to have more catlike reflexes or the room (or part of the room) can evolve to trap mice. Of course both can happen simultaneously, but for simplicities sake, let's say we remain unchanged and the room evolves to trap and kill mice.
