This is a picture from the Handy Household Gadgets catalogue that I get regularly through the door. That IS a dead mouse, isn't it?
Or at least, if not dead, it has been resting for quite some time and has nasty pins and needles in its extremities:
I have spent the last week in a slightly bemused state, trying to work out:
a) Whether it's a stuffed one that they have got in reserve for just such a photo-opportunity. Or whether it's just the one they caught the night before using the Humane Mousetrap, that perhaps died by accident and they've decided not to waste.
b) Whether it's actually a gerbil. And if so, whether that makes it better, or worse.
