Despereaux Jr.

by ada

Meet Despereaux Junior. We found him on the first floor nurses room terrace, suffering from severe hypothermia. We put him in a sterile urine container padded with gauze sheets and I took him home with me. He got a dinner of cucumbers, parrot seeds and some aged grana padano cheese I brought home from Venice. My coworker also donated some milk for him. When the temperature finally gets above zero I will reintroduce him to the big wild world. If we are stuck in the Ice Age forever as it seriously seems to be the case, he will grow up to be a domesticated mouse and will eat aged cheese on every day of his tiny life.

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”.
