I am a mouse. My name is Niblet. I live in a
little hole in a house. Living in the house is a man, a woman, a boy, and a girl. I like
the two children a lot. They always leave crumbs behind and I get to eat them when
everyone is asleep. They also have cool little toys. Some of the toys are good for my home
so I borrow them and use them in my house. Last week I found a little chair, just big
enough for me. It fits so nicely in my living room.
Today I found a little spoon. It is great for scooping up
crumbs that are in cracks that I can't reach.
I also have a little blanket that I found under the little boy's
bed. It really isn't a blanket, it is an old shirt from his little teddy bear. He doesn't
need it anymore because he got his bear a new shirt and the old one makes a perfect
blanket for me.
I miss the kids when they go to school in the morning. The house
is so quiet without them. I really miss all of the squeaks and noise they make. Kids are
just like mice.
I love the family I live with, and I hope they never find
out about me. People are scared of mice and try to get rid of them if they find us in
their house. That's why I need to be so quiet. Shhhhhh!
