Tittlemice

No compendium of Tittles would be complete without mentioning the mice in the family. The poacher Tommy came first in the nursery rhyme first recorded in 1844:
Little Tommy Tittlemouse
Lived in a little house;
He caught fishes
In other mens' ditches.
He was followed in 1910 by Beatrix Potter's Mrs Tittlemouse (no first name supplied) whose obsessive efforts to keep her house spotlessly clean are undermined by a series of visitors of various insect and amphibian species.
