This little fella was wandering (at times in circles) on the road on my way to the post office. I thought he might be a hamster, so I stopped, but he's definitely a wild rodent. Not a baby rat because he's too small and well-developed.
I scared him back into the bushes. I'm worried that he won't survive the winter or even the day if he's running around on the road. But, my fear of a rodent-borne illness kept me far away from him. (The camera provided the close-up).
Mabel has recovered as well as she will from her pneumonia, and I don't want to risk losing any of my rats after having just lost Rose.
