A belated gift

We’ve been having work done in the garden to make it a good exploring place. As this involved having a whole tree dragged through the house, we had to move the sofa out the way.

At which point, nearly two months after he died, Sébastian gave us a parting gift. A mummified mouse corpse. It was brittle.

Sébastian’s kill count

    Uncertain – 11

I miss my mouser. But I don’t miss the corpses.
