> Happiness is a dormouse family with its own little village

Subby, the photographer says it is a house mouse which is a different species than the sleepy dormouse.​e
The edible dormouse (Glis glis) was considered a delicacy in ancient Rome, either as a savoury appetizer or as a dessert (dipped in honey and poppy seeds). The Romans used a special kind of enclosure, a glirarium, to raise and fatten dormice for the table.[6] It is still considered a delicacy in Slovenia and in several places in Croatia, namely Lika, and the islands of Hvar and Brač.[7][8] Dormouse fat was believed by the Elizabethans to induce sleep since the animal put on fat before hibernating.[9]

House mice normally only live in people's houses during cold weather - they spend most of their time out doors.

The Lone Biker of the Apocalypse: Vermin are not adorable.

Those aren't dormice, but real dormice aren't vermin.  In fact, they're considered edible.

I'm truly sorry Man's dominion
Has broken Nature's social union,
An' justifies that ill opinion,
       Which makes thee startle,
At me, thy poor, earth-born companion,
       An' fellow-mortal!

Mr Burns knew.

Humans are wonderful when they work for themselves instead of business owners. They produce fun. ^_^

His neighbors must be thrilled that he's breeding disease ridden vermin in the neighborhood.
