This is a portrait of our mouse guest Joe. Joe might have been a girl, we are not sure about that. He or she and his or her sibling George (also maybe a boy or girl) lived with us for a while because one of our cats dragged them home while they were still babies. When they had grown out of the obvious baby stage and had started exploring their cage to the very rim we drove them to the nearest forest. I made a makeshift found-wood-tree-trunk-and earth cave, and they both immediately ran into it. I hope they lived a long and happy life, although for mice in the wild it is often short and ends rather abrupt and painful.
