Dexter the mouse


Over the last couple of weeks we had a new pet. It all started when we found my boyfriend's cat, Kyoshi, with a mouse. Only the tail dangled from her mouth. We rescued the animal and wanted to give him his freedom outside, but he refused to leave and stared at us as if he was thinking: "How can you leave me here all by myself?"

Several weeks later the mouse had a name - Dexter (after one of our favorite TV series) - and was living a luxurious life, sleeping on a cotton bed and nibbling from mice candy.

One day, though, Dexter was gone. He had escaped. I have read before that mice can find their way through the smallest of holes, so I guess this is what happened.

What do you think of little Dexter? Isn't he the cutest?


  1. That's awesome! I just started season one of Dexter last week, I love the mouse - adorable!

  2. Awww he is so cute. Sorry he found his way out though. Maybe he felt safe enough to move on after getting the loving he needed from you.

  3. Oh, Dexter is adorable! It was so kind of you to take care of the little guy until he was ready to get back to his regular life. This is a heartwarming Christmas tale! :D

  4. Ahhh, those eyes! I want her :(

    Crossing my fingers for her, she is so lovely <3

  5. Dexter is adorable! I have a pet rat, but she's not a wild rat. As a child, my hamsters always seemed to escape. Luckily, we always found them again.

  6. M goes Ekkk when she sees a mousie outside, but she says Dexter is kinda cute. Sorry he ran away from home. However he found is way out, he might find his way back in again too.

  7. I'm not really a fan of mice running around my house, but I will admit that they are very cute! You got some great pictures!

  8. oh my goodness...what a cutie!

  9. Awww, Dexter is so adorable! I'm sorry to hear that he got away. :-(

    Hopefully he'll return when he is done exploring.
