Tempo is/was the name of our mouse.
"Tempo" is short for "Temporary," as in probably not a permanent pet, but since we caught him in a live trap at the violin store it also seemed like an appropriately musical name.
The kids loved Tempo and we got him a tank and a wheel. Mona made him a little duct tape house.
He's been happy in his tank since late April, running in his wheel all night long, snacking on almonds and seeds. Then the kids decided we really should clean his tank. Like an idiot I tried to dump Tempo from his little house into the live trap and SPROING! Out popped Tempo onto the window seat, down to the floor, and into a grate. Just like Ian told the kids would happen if they tried to do such a thing.
Oh well. At least Tempo is now probably Allegro in both senses of the term.
