I saw this one going up a small tree. I bent the tree down to get the shot.

Looks like an ordinary old garden variety house mouse to me.
Antechinus have a sort of pointier nose with a bauble at the tip.

Thank you for that.I did notice the not so pointed nose but as it was very cute I was hoping that I missed something.
my cat will probably get him if he move closer to the house.

A couple of antichinus shots and yes I would say you have a mouse Franco...
