Do mice actually make squeaky noises?

I seem to have mice in the house, which I've been trying to catch with humane traps--apparently they're too smart for me.
Anyway, I'm sitting here working and I hear this rustling noise that's creeping me out a little, and then some hihg-pitched squeaking. It sounds like what I would imagine a mouse would sound like, but I really have no idea. Could it be?
I don't really mind their being here, but it would be great if they kept it down a bit. They're freaking me out!

Yes...they do! My sweet daughter caught a wild mouse while helping a friend's parents move. She brought him home...then felt bad and decided to let him go...
ON THE BACK PORCH...
Needless to say, he ran back in...and procreating, I'm sure. He was in the house for a while...but I haven't heard him all week...

yes. I won't go in to detail, but they can be really loud when there's a cat involved..... :(
They are so cute, but they carry all sorts of diseases. There are humane traps out there. Just ask HerMajestysRoyalBags. She's an expert on the mouse, catch and release program. :)

Well, I guess that's what I heard then. I was kind of hoping they had moved on. It's frustrating because I think I know right where they are, but they're not falling for my traps. But I've been using the lure gel stuff that came with them, rather than peanut butter, so I'll give that a go tomorrow night and hope for the best.
Thanks for the tips, you guys. :o)
