Yesterday I saved this little fellow from the claws of our cat.

After a bit of cheese, he was friendly enough to do a photoshoot with me.
Then I let him go.

He's a very lucky little chap. Whenever our cats used to get mice & shrews, they inevitably died of shock a couple of hours after being rescued. He looks remarkably chipper to me...

Did you let him go somewhere nice?

Yeah he ate all of the cheese so I think he might be fine. I think Ulmerik treated him gently: he didn't have any wounds or so. Even then it can be quite a shock to be caught by an animal like this:

Cute to us, but dangerous for small creatures.
