The mouse is hanging to a wire trying hard not to get sucked into the vacuum. It was somehow able to disconnect the sewage pipe and connect it to the vacuum tube. There's no way it would have been able to move the pipe with its tiny paws.

The speed of the orange after it hits the mouse.

In one scene it is spinning slowly in the next it is spinning faster and in the next it is not spinning at all.

When Ernie and Lars inherit a mansion they hear that the last owner of the place was locked in a trunk up in the attic. They both come back to the house and one of the police officers said that Caesar was found locked in a trunk. A human is many times bigger than a mouse, so there is no way that a mouse that clever (with an elaborate obstacle course) could have carried him.

When the water breaks through the wall, near the end of the movie, you can see that the wall is made out of Sheetrock and not plaster keyed to lathe which would be appropriate to the house's age.

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). Based on interior and exterior shots in the scene, the lower ("inner") window panel appears to run the entire length of the window. In addition, the position of the curtains change from framing the window to pulled back.
