The Scottish tale of The Mouse and the Douglas-Fir Cone is a good example to demonstrate this creature's intuitive ingenuity. It tells of a Mouse who lived in day to day fear of a sly Fox who he had managed to evade for a long time. One day the Fox caught up with the Mouse and began to chase him through the forest. Looking frantically for a hiding place the Mouse scurried inside a Fir cone just big enough to conceal him. The Fox could not see him anywhere and so gave up his hunt. It is said that the Douglas- Fir Cone has what appears to be the Mouse's hind legs and tail sticking out from it as the Mouse is still hidden inside. This story shows the Mouse's intense natural talents of resourcefulness in times of need.

Much of the Mouse's perceived character can be derived from the famous fable teller Aessop and his moralistic stories. One such story is about a Mouse who begged for his life when caught by a Lion who was about to eat him. In return for sparing him the Mouse declared he would afford the Lion the same generosity. The Lion laughed as he could not imagine how a creature so tiny could possibly help him. He found out some time later when he was ensnared in a trap and the Mouse came to his rescue by gnawing away the ropes that restricted his escape. The moral of this tale is that even the strong sometimes need the friendship of the weak. Another fable concerns the Town Mouse and his Country Cousin who came to visit but soon fled when he realized that there were Dogs in the house.
