We wondered who had done it. Star usually prefers little black mice that don't rattle. Purple mouse rattles. Leo likes feathers, but we have occasionally seen him play with mice. Then as soon as the wet mouse was set aside to dry, Leo was on it!
Hey, mousie, you're all wet. Let me knock you around to help dry you!
That piece of junk mail is what I'd just been giving him some nip on.
Even your rattle sounds soggy, dude!
Scoop you up, toss you around!
Oh hi. I was just playin'! Can you blow dry mousie? No, wait. I hate the blow dryer!
I'll just keep scootin' him around!
And giving him the bitey!
That'll work. Right?
All I know is that purple dye better not run and get on my still kinda new carpet!
