The tail has gone missing, but Sean doesn't care. He throws this thing all over the place. The Iriahman are frequently mistaking the thing for an insect or poop or some other questionable object.
If he is lucky the mouse lands on the ceiling. For days at a time Sean will point up and say, "Mouse on the ROOF!"
Usually the mouse stays there until he can talk Daddy into helping him. This morning he found the cardboard tube from our new area rug.
He is feeling quite independent!
Such a clever little guy!
