Just going out the door to get some fresh air on a Sunday afternoon can turn into quite an adventure! Once again, mice were a part of it. First, I visited an outdoor display of old Italian cars, including the Fiat 500 Topolino, or ‘mouse’. It’s a very small car!
Then later, attracted by a bulky bunny rabbit in the window of a pet shop, I went inside to find a whole bunch of mice going about their business in cages, wondering why people buy them for home while I want them out of mine. Then, amused by the antics of a really big mouse, I saw the shop cat, which incidentally had only three legs, playing with a mouse. What a life-like mouse, I thought. Hey, wait a minute, it’s real! The cat would catch the mouse with its mouth, then put it on the ground and wait for the mouse to take off again. The mouse was used to the whole ordeal. “It’s her toy,” said the pet shop owner.
