A couple of weeks ago it was my birthday, and I got a new friend...
Her name is Miss Wilhelmina Mousiekins, and she's the prettiest spotted mouse I've ever seen. She was a bit shy at first, but I bribed her with oats and cornbread crumbs, and now she's so very friendly. Miss Mousiekins will take food from my hands, even eating straight out of my palm. She comes towards us when we approach her cage, and she loves to climb all over the place.
We've replaced the wire cage with a glass tank, so she can't reach out of the door of the cage like she used to, but Wilhelmina still hops onto my hand when I put it in her cage.
Is that not the most adorable face?
