Is this the bravest little field mouse in Britain?
The tiny creature turned into the mouse that roared after a cat ventured too near his nest.
The mighty mouse stood up and let out his loudest squeak despite being just a cat’s whisker away from death.
The fearless rodent proved he was no scaredy-cat as he astonishingly squared up to his large opponent and refused to budge.
The unusual game of cat and mouse took on a new slant as the little creature stood his ground.
“It was incredible, the little mouse stood up and seemed to be roaring at the cat,” said Christopher Goddard, 47, from Swavesey, Cambs, who spotted the encounter in his back garden.
“The cat was much bigger than him and could have killed him at any moment but he didn’t seem to care.
“He seemed to be prepared to do anything to protect his home. He must be the bravest field mouse in the country.”
It seems to have been worth the gamble as the cat soon got cheesed off and crept away.
While the tiny mouse scuttled off to tell his mates a tall tail.
