Yesterday we found our kitty, Coco, standing in front of a tiny mouse shivering in fear on the kitchen floor.
When Coco finds a mouse she just loves to play with it, and hasn’t realized–in the five years of her young life–that with one easy swipe her sharp little claws could quickly end its life.
John managed to place the intact tiny mouse in a transparent plastic container, which gave me an opportunity to closely observe its beauty. In my studio, I made a few watercolor sketches of the little mouse and, really, it’s no wonder mice have been subjects of so many lovely children stories and illustrations. Mice are adorable little creatures to look at.
If only it would behave like a ‘civilized’ pet, I would keep it in my studio!
After much debate about what to do with our little furry captive, we discretely set it free in the back corner of a local grocery store (name undisclosed) rather than outside in the freezing snow and ice. We thought it would find many new friends, and we wanted it to have a second chance😢.
What would you have done with this little mouse?
