the new mouse is settling in. 
we went up to petsmart to get her, since the rain finally subsided. she was the last mouse they had till friday. a shy little blond of about 8 weeks. she ought to be around for a while then.
we brought her home, and introduced her to the boy, (whose original name was jesse, but it never stuck. her was always ‘little brown mouse’, and the female was ‘the girl mouse’, or ‘black and white mouse’). because of her color, we called her butterscotch. so jesse, aka little brown mouse, has become brownie. maybe not so imaginative, but fitting.
they are warming up to each other. i think he’s wondering who the young blond is. and she is a little wary of him. but in time im sure they will be good friends.
pictures to come later.
