White footed mouse

Peromyscus leucopus


7" long, brown back white belly. Ears and eyes large.


Dry Pine oak woods but really all over the place in New England.


This mouse had gotten in my sisters house at thanksgiving and was being chased by one of her cats. It sought refuge on the window sill, we trapped it with a sieve and cardboard and took it outside to relative safety.... but way far away from the house. Second photo of mouse nest in our shed. Using our recycled paper.
