When the vacuum cleaner is attached to the sewage line, the mouse watches from outside. He sits on top of the upper ("outer") window panel which has been pulled down to the bottom position of its track (for easier cleaning - consistent with the boys housecleaning).

In addition, the position of the curtains change from framing the window to pulled back.
DVD version contains six deleted scenes:
