He's definately more scared of you!!! (not that you're ugly or anything)  ;D Dont worry, just try to see where he came from and block it up if he went back in there.

If you just want it gone, stick down a few mouse traps but if you dont want to KILL it make a humane trap and let it go outside. Our pet hamster escaped a few weeks ago and after searching the house for hours we finally had to go to bed. In the kitchen and living room we set up a stack of books to make a small stairs leading to a box. On each ''step'' place some food and then more in the box. If he climbs in he wont be able to get out and you can release him in the wild.

I can lend you my cat.

He will kill it, and anything else that moves within 2 miles. (that is smaller than him)

I agree here, we had one mouse recently and thats what got him,   
On a positive point, I was assured if we had a mouse, we would have no Rat, they don't live together apparently, we just had the one little bugger and that was it.

hmmm, no sign of the mouse since, put down mousetraps with cheese and peanut butter. It mustve been intimidated by me. I suppose I look pretty tough to a 2inch rodent, maybe your right about the rat thing, I should get a rat and then I wouldnt have the mouse problem!  ^-^

thats true, but a piece of rasher on it, they love that.
i used to throw a piece of my breaky roll out into the compound on the site, i'd sit there watching them scurry off with bacon slices bigger than their head!!
great tes time entertainment. ;D
This is just the way of the world Joe said
I had to put a bullet into his head
Then lit up a cigarette
Decided to call his fat friend Fred
Well he said Fred I just killed a man
Caught him laying with my girlfriend
Now they're both dead, people can be so cold when they're dead
