1. Have you tried mint?
We had one a couple of years ago who kept showing up in our bathroom (presumably drawn by the natural wheat litter in the cat's box). I read that they hate mint, so I bought some fresh springs and put them under the radiator. The mouse disappeared shortly thereafter and we haven't seen once since (I mint-ify the bathroom each winter, just in case.)

And no, the cat didn't take care of the little guy. She, alas, is no mouser.
