Could you Survive as a Mouse?

Orkin "Mouse in a House" Game & Giveaway
A Geek Daddy's Little Helper
Brrr! We were outside raking autumn leaves and mowing the yard one last time before winter and I wasn't expecting it to be as brisk as it was.  I'm not looking forward to cold temperatures becoming the daily norm around here but with Halloween passed and Thanksgiving approaching that time of year is here.  Fortunately, I have a cozy house to escape the winter chill in.  What though becomes of all the critters in your neighborhood where the outdoors is their home?

Many of the birds migrate, bats, racoons and skunks tend to sleep through much of the winter in their dens, and rodents often try to invite themselves into your home to take advantage of the warmth, food and shelter.  We may not like the sound of unwelcome visitors treating our home like a winter timeshare, but how would you look at the situation if you were a mouse looking to get out of the cold?  Our friends at Orkin challenge you to see what you would do if you were a mouse trying to survive the winter through their new interactive app #MouseInAHouse 

Try your luck by playing "Mouse in a House", a choose-your-own-adventure game that puts you in the shoes of a rodent looking to survive the upcoming harsh winter season.  Give it your best shot to stay alive and see how long you last!
