I designed and built this oversize “mousetrap” as part of my collection of insanely unique cat trees. It’s constructed of wood, carpeting, sisal, and a painted curtain rod as the spring-loaded “trapping device.” A painted steel rod sets the “trap.”

Not to worry, though…this isn’t a real, functioning mousetrap. If you need to catch mice that size, it might be time to move further away from the nuclear power plant.
