Mighty Mouse...

It was before 7 a.m. this morning when we discovered a tiny little mouse had taken a surprise swim in our pool. Although we didn't witness his miraculous swim to safety. His life raft was the pool cleaner tube. We found this itsy bitsy mighty mouse perched there, cleaning his little paws as if waiting patiently for one of us to arrive and rescue him from this unfortunate predicament, which we did. Although first my husband snapped a pic.

Once rescued, he sat among the plants to recover his land legs, and this was yet another photo opportunity for us. He is tiny, about an inch and a half (not including his very long tail). A cuter fellow and stronger swimmer you will never find and we were lucky enough to find him before disaster struck....our little Mighty Mouse.

He is so very cute and OH so very lucky (and mighty!)! I'm glad you don't have kitties who might have supervised this rescue operation a wee bit differently ....
