About the piece: Sometimes we eat things we know don't agree with us because the taste is worth the discomfort. Such is the case for many a lactose intolerant mouse. Unfortunately, if such a mouse truly overindulges and fatigue sets in, those toots can lead to a life-or-death situation when a very hungry cat is downwind.
