There’s a mouse in the house! Eek! Hey, that little furry critter sure is cute. That is, when he’s on TV or anywhere other than your home. But when a rodent invades your space it’s… well, less than fun. And that’s exactly what happened to Laura Mazza from Mum on the Run. Take a look at this mama’s mouse tale. Oh, and wait for the surprise ending.

So, Mazza went into her son’s room and saw — a mouse. And she did what most of us would. Come on, you can pretend you’re all tough and that you would totally get in there, pick up the mouse and shuttle it outside pronto. But it’s more likely that you’d lock the door and try to forget about it. Or at least cross your fingers and hope that the mouse just lets himself out.

Mazza detailed what happened after she found the mouse on the Mum on the Run Facebook page. The hilarious tale chronicles how she called her husband and what happened next. It’s seriously funny, and you seriously need to read the whole thing to get the big picture.

If you’re wondering what happened to the mouse, we have to warn you — this is a spoiler alert. As it turns out, it wasn’t a mouse at all. The supposed rodent was actually a tiny toy leopard. Go figure!
