Do not look DIRECTLY AT HIM!

...Or he will completely own you—WHAT DID I JUST TELL YOU!? OMG, Paws up, too.


Upside-down props to SJ H., owner/butler of 'Stuart' the deermouse.

Ah, deermice. One of the least-known but CUTEST creatures. This one looks in the lap of luxury!

A thinker

OMG *faints* that's just too cute!

 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 10:30 AM

And the subtle ear-fold is worth a few points, as well.... Somebody tickle that belly, already!

 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 10:38 AM

What a sweet white belly!

What a nice little mousie. :)

you guys r silly
 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 11:28 AM

And what a dear mouse!

 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 11:30 AM

Is it just me? I don't find rodents cute at all. In fact, this site has increasingly gone downhill in terms of cute postings...

 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 11:35 AM

aww, so cute. Nice fingernails also, that makes for a good photo. We have seen many of not-so -pretty fingernails. Nice job!

 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 11:38 AM

irrational fears are so tedious - i mean, come ON, exactly how is something soooo tiny going to hurt anyone?? rodents are adorable!

 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 11:39 AM

hey lazyj-ever heard of the bubonic plague? :P

i do think this animal is prosh, anerable and all kinds of other made-up words.

 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 11:43 AM

hee. kewt.

 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 12:18 PM

tiny mouse thinks: do not look directly into their eyes...they will smother me with stinky kisses...do.not.look...


 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 12:23 PM

Aww, I just love deermouse bellies. Sadly, mine do not like to be on their backs unless another is sleeping on top of them.

 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 12:31 PM

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwww!! Yep, I think my brain is frozen due to too much CUTE! :D

 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 12:32 PM

Whoa, he melted. Look, he's dribbling off the back. Zounds.

 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 12:33 PM

oh, Theo-- That's the bell pull!

 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 12:44 PM

Aww geez, who could NOT like rodents? Hmmm? Look at those big eyes, those teeny weeny paws, that white belly! Saweeeeet.

 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 12:58 PM

I think we need to knit a wee tiny sweater and cap with a pompom on the point for THIS little guy too!!!
Whatcha think?????
P.S. And the microscopic booties and teensy mittens...

you guys r silly
 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 01:13 PM

That mouse has a look in its eyes - it *knows* that it pwns us all.

 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 02:15 PM

I totally agree with Heather- where have all the cute images gone?

I agree with Heather
 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 02:26 PM

Is deermice the plural of dormouse? 'Cause I've always wondered what the heck a dormouse is and if they exist only in England.

 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 03:00 PM

it is truly prosh, but hantavirus is not prosh at all :(

otherwise I'd have one
 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 03:18 PM

BLIND.... blind from the cuteness.... *g*

And on that pesky old plague thing... it was actually... the bugs in the bugs on the rats who over populated because people killed the cats thinking they were evil story... deadly bacteria x fleas + rats - cats = plague .... bad bug joojoo and cool micobe math... don't blame the door mouse or he will melt your brain with cuteness!!!

 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 03:23 PM

Oh my God belly. Looks sooo soft.

 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 04:04 PM

My tuxedo cat gets this exact same facial expression when he's lying on his back sometimes. "Wouldn't you like to pet my belly? It's very, very soft and warm..." I think this wee mousie knows how cute he is!

 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 04:09 PM

If I was the size of a mouse to that mouse, I'd be tempted to jump right into that soft white belly and lie there all happy and warm.

The Guy Over There

 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 04:40 PM

Adooooorable mousie.

And his owner has very pretty hands, too. No wonder he looks so comfy.

 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 06:17 PM

Kudos to Anon E Mouse for the silly screen name & Kliban reference. Whee!

 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 06:29 PM

I looked! And now I have to try to type without seeing my keyboard, since I've been BLINDED by the cuteness! Talk about overload!!

 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 07:05 PM

so trusting...it seems to be adoring its person while it's being adorable! and the tiny feets...this could be the favorite

 |  Apr 19, 2006 at 08:51 PM

[robotic voice] Yes .... Master.

 |  Apr 20, 2006 at 06:29 AM

Yes they are called 'broth mice' up north.. yer pal mtm

 |  Apr 20, 2006 at 07:27 AM

Thanks for the nice comments - I'll pass 'em on to Stu...
Quick facts:
Stu was found by my cats at 10 days old (before he could see/hear) so he grew up in my hand and- obviously - thinks that's the safest place he could be since I was the first thing he ever saw
- He gets a cuddle / belly rub for at least an hour a day and if you tickle his back leg he'll stretch them waaaay up in the air - also likes his chin and teeth rubbed
- Deermice are not dormice / doormice (all v. cute though)
- By the time we found out what he was it was too late to worry about Hantavirus (which obviously he doesn't carry). Not really around here anyway - but always make sure to spray water on any droppings in shed from his extended family to keep dust down in case. No probs.
Thanks for the nice comments about my hands!

 |  Apr 20, 2006 at 08:04 AM

You guys R silly -- YESH, definitely a wee little cap and mitts for this mousie. Can you knit?

 |  Apr 20, 2006 at 08:11 AM

Don't Deermice carry really nasty diseases? Like the Hanta Virus or something?

 |  Apr 20, 2006 at 11:45 AM

Apparently I"m a bad reader that doesn't finish reading things before wanting to post...

 |  Apr 20, 2006 at 11:46 AM

It's yet another example of what I humbly suggest otter be a rule of cute - if you have a white tummy you must show it! All of my cats with white tummies displayed them proudly, the bigger the better.
