One evening in the last week or so I came home later than usual. Feeling guilty I immediately looked in on the mice and was met 'at the door' by all four of them. I opened the door and instead of running off like they would usually do the mice swarmed into my hand and some even cuddled.
Their actions surprised me. Even the most social of the mice is not usually this friendly. And when the least social of the mice looks up at me with big goo-goo eyes it tugs at my heart.
