    This Mouse Politely Helped Humans Catch Him

    No mouse was injured in the making of this video.

    Kaitlin Sjostedt, a 30-year-old Brooklynite, went to take a shower one night and found there was a tiny mouse chilling in the tub of her apartment.

    "I opened the shower curtain and saw the mouse running around in the tub. I was a bottle of wine deep, so my initial reaction was to laugh at it and then text all of my roommates a picture."

    Quickly she and her friend decided that they needed to "catch and release" it, and started to think of a plan on how to do so.

    "It was kind of like that game Mouse Trap! I ran into the kitchen and grabbed a large mason jar and had my friend help me coax him into the jar."

    What they didn't expect was that the little scared mouse was going to cooperate by JUMPING into the mason jar.

    They then proceeded to cover him with paper towels to make sure it wouldn't jump out or bite them. Just in case!

    And out into the backyard he went. Free again.

    "After freeing the mouse I felt like an angel giving a life a new chance. I saved that mouse's life."

    Kaitie uploaded part of the video to her Instagram for the amusement of her friends.
