how cute. :)

I had rats twice.
It was strange, because the first one we got from a snake food place and my mom found it sad to let him get eaten.
We also had snakes, 3.

:rofl: Actually, I've had this happen in my office with a mouse and a family pack of Oreos... It's a fairly old building and me and my office mate knew that there was a mouse somewhere. One evening, when I came back and switched on the lights I saw it. Having a party in the cookie box. Let's just say it wasn't a really fast escape... From the amount of crumbs it had clearly eaten more than one. I left the one it was munching on when I came where the mouse had dropped it. It was gone the next morning. So from that night on, we kept the cookies firmly locked :D

PS: Apparently there was no harm done to the mouse, it kept coming back for quite a while :)

I love all rodentia, but I don't know how anyone could NOT love a little, snow white, 4-legged, Oreo-munching critter with a name as cool as Esme; especially when said creature looks like she's thinking, "Uh oh! Busted!" :D

Nice shot!
