|The Hope Mouse is altruistic by nature, wanting only to help others, be they human or mouse. The King has been so touched by the selflessness of these mice that he has sent out a decree. If any hunter should catch a Hope Mouse, dust him off and send him on his way, as he's likely off to do some good in the world.|
|Mouse ID#: 100|
The Developers have confirmed that the Hope Mouse has no specific preference for any kind of cheese.
