ELIZABETH Hurley "declared war" after her mansion became infested with mice last week.
The 48-year-old actress was getting ready to spend Easter with her family and friends at her home in Donnington Hall, Herefordshire, when a mouse shot out from the sofa.
Taking to Twitter on Thursday, she said: "Mayhem. A mouse just shot out from behind the sofa. Screaming women (me loudest) and children. (sic)".
The brunette beauty, who has 12-year-old son Damian, even enlisted the help of her mother's cats to catch the rodents as they scurried around her living room.
She explained: "My mum on her way round with her two killer cats. I'm having a stiff drink.
"Operation Vermin started early this morning. On my hands and knees looking for evidence. (sic)".
Elizabeth, who also owns a plush flat in London, later thanked her fans for their advice in getting rid of the pests.
She tweeted: "Thank you for all your rodent killing advice....taking it all on board. Have declared war on them. (sic)."
The star bought her mansion two years ago with her ex-boyfriend Shane Warne for a reported £6 million.
The couple called time on their relationship last year after their busy schedules caused them to grow apart, but they insist they still remain friends.
