“He allowed me to sit close to him for more than an hour.”
Brighid Rose was visiting her parents’ house the other day when she discovered that a different kind of visitor had also arrived — and that he’d made himself at home.
It was a little mouse that had been rummaging through their cabinets for food. Brighid’s parents were desperate to get rid of him, and hoped that their cat would be equal to the task. Brighid, on the other hand, chose to adopt a kinder approach after observing the mouse during her visit.
Brighid told The Dodo, “I grabbed him up and carried him out to the field behind their house.”
But she went above and above.
It would have been respectable enough to safely remove the little mouse from the premises. Brighid, on the other hand, opted to take things a step further.
“I felt horrible just abandoning him out in the field,” Brighid explained, “particularly since he must have been used to eating all that human food in my parents’ cupboards.” “So I brought him a small farewell picnic.”
Brighid spread out a handkerchief to act as a picnic blanket and placed some food on the table. It was a big hit with the small mouse.
Brighid said, “It was incredibly lovely.” “He sat next to me for more than an hour. To me, he appeared to be in a good mood.”
Here’s a video of their little gathering:
After a while, the small mouse discovered a safe haven nearby. Brighid left him a couple more treats before moving back inside to assist him get back on his feet at home in the outdoors.
Giving the mouse with dignity — and treating him to a small goodbye lunch — came naturally to Brighid.
“I’ve always had a strong affinity towards animals. I didn’t really give it much thought. This is something I should do for him! It isn’t his fault that he is a small mouse in a large world! “she stated “It was adorable! It certainly brightened my day.”
