Very cute looking, but do they cause many problems?

You could always fatten him up......

The edible dormouse was considered a delicacy in ancient Rome, either as a savoury appetizer or as a dessert (dipped in honey and poppy seeds). The Romans had a special kind of enclosure known as glirarium used to rear dormice for the table. Dormice to this day are eaten in Slovenia. Dormouse fat was used by the Elizabethans to induce sleep.
