Thomas the Rat had found a wonderful slice of cheese a few hours ago and hid it behind a basket. He had planed on retrieving it after he got his cigar. When he returned what did he see!!?? No. Were his aging eyes deceiving him? A crummy little mouse was holding HIS slice of cheese! Just as he was about to take possession of the cheese, the little scoundrel ran off like a bolt of lightning, entering his hidey hole. Well, surveying the scene, Thomas decided that a few apples would make a fine meal. During the night he dreamed about having his meal of cheese.
Thanks for the view and your comments...

Poor Thomas, apples are not cheese... next time he needs to take his treat with him. I love the cigar, it makes him look sophisticated. Little mouse just looks smug. :) A cute scene and a fun story.

Love that sneaky mouse on left expression.
He should have just eaten the cheese instead of stashing it. Fun image Barb.

Well, see? There's a good reason to quit smoking.. LOL
What a fun image, Barb!

Thomas should have waited until after he ate his cheese to smoke. From what I hear a good smoke after a meal tastes much better. Great scene Barb, well done!

And the moral of the story is: never go anywhere without your cigar! ;-) Fun story and scene!

So Thomas learnt that smoking is bad for your health - if you smoke, someone steals your cheese! Awesome story and render.

I am sure the little mouse will enjoy the cheese & Thomas can have lots of apples. Made me smile.

I love the imaginative responses here (incl morals!) I have to admit, the first thing I did was try to see if there was a 'political' undertone, only because you're so quick and sharp to dig into the present political situation. (So I sat here thinking, 'ok: the big mouse is our prez, the little guy is.....no: the cheese is the leader of the senate, and......") I hope I didn't miss anything, lol...I love the scene, and the expression of the cigar chomping dude (who looks like he just came back from a poker game), and the self-satisfied cheese-stealer. I also like that it's a night scene, and the candles in the background, and blue tint all over the ground (mouse hair from mouse no. 2 ? moondust?) Delightful scene, with a gold-tinted light falling over it. Delightful. And I hope you're staying healthy and safe in all ways, Barb. And I hope things start easing up in your (very intense) area...

Cute story and adorable characters. Not one to advocate smoking but something about the cigar really adds something to Thomas's look.

Thomas decides to keep all the cheese and declares himself top rat of law and order...
