So this is what happened......

Do you remember my post yesterday about the injured mouse i rescued.
Well, if you don't you can find it HERE
If you have seen my video on Youtube then you will know that the mouse escaped from a box in my living room. After 131/2 hours of trying to catch it and set it free, it made one final appearance and my fur baby got a hold of it. Needless to say it didn't survive and we were exhausted from trying to catch it before he did. Poor little mouse!
Click HEREto see how it escaped!
