What Am I?

I've seen deer, bobcats & coyotes in our backyard, but I've never seen one of these. He is so cute with his tiny ears and invisible eyes. Is he a mole? He was chilling in our driveway the other morning.

Robert scooped him up & placed him on the dirt of our front yard. He seemed happier there, sniffing around.

I feel bad for the poor thing. I worry he was sick. He just sat there, but didn't know if he was playing possum. We haven't seen him since. Hopefully he just dug a hole in the ground & went about his business...

If you know what he is, let me know! I'm curious.

Definitely not a mole. If I had to guess I would say some kind of guinea pig, but it's hard to tell how big it is from the pictures. Disclaimer: I have no expertise in rodent identification, however.

He is adorable. A field mouse, mmassie says? But the snout seems so short...
