Meet Despereaux*, my new friend pet flatmate. He** doesn’t really lives in, but comes by for a visit every evening through the balcony door and stays for a while. I like him and I think he likes me too. I’m actually considering leaving some nuts for him on a small plate out on my balcony as a sign of love, peace, unity and rock’n’roll for a quick snack, but I still have to overcome my serious doubts about my landlord sincerely approving my practising hospitality to rodents in his own house.

* I named him after the hero of Kate DiCamillo’s sweet book which I just finished reading.

** He is definitely masculine, from the sort that wears glasses, reads writes poetry, listens to classical music and has a deep and romantic soul. He definitely isn’t from the sort that drinks beer while watching soccer on tv in underpants or that calls women „chicks” and „bitches”.
