A little mouse stands on the grumpy owl’s doorstep asking for refuge.
“Would it be okay if I waited here until it stops raining?”
“Yeah, you can stay on the porch.”
A reclusive loner, he certainly wasn’t going to roll out the welcome wagon for the stranger. And he just wants his piano-playing peace.
But against his natural judgement, he softens and allows the polite mouse to come into his home.
He can’t help but fret about how the mouse will destroy his home and his life. But there’s a bigger problem at hand. He’s a natural predator who’s low on meat and feeling rather peckish… it’s a dilemma.
Turns out when he let the little mouse into his home, it was just the start of something bigger.
