Little Field Mouse (reunited with the field...Saline, Michigan)

Little Field Mouse (reunited with the field...Saline, Michigan)

This morning (Saturday July 20, 2013), Cosmo the cat was darting back and forth and making a noise that usually comes with trying to get something...I thought he was crazy as usual, until I saw a tiny mouse dart out from under the couch in the beach room and then back under. For around five minutes, they played...well, cat and mouse. I blocked the door to the rest of the house and was hoping I would have a chance to get the mouse. Finally, the mouse made a run for the door to the garage. I quickly opened the door and the mouse ran out - story over...right? No - Cosmo ran into the Garage, grabbed the mouse and brought him back INTO the house. He jumped over the door block and ran into the living room. After some hiding, and a few more minutes, I was able to get the mouse trapped under a side table next to the stairs. Using the box from our new cell Samsung Galaxy III phones (which are now - two days in - already twice as useful as our old phones), I was able to trap said mouse and bring him back to the field. Since the picture of the day rarely presents itself before 7am...felt it was important to capture.
