No, not the inmates. Well, they are irritating little pests and all. But I'm talking about the sweet little critter pictured above.

Isn't that just lovely? I know I'm tickled pink over the idea.
And of course we didn't find out about it until the two offenders who had it got released back out on the hill today. So we had to get the biohazard guy down with his spray to hose down the cell and the pile of mattresses, since we could not identify which belonged to the two who got out.
