I just bought 3 female fancy mice; Fonda, Fondue & Phantom a.k.a. Fanny. They are so freaking cute! I went into the pet store intending to buy a russian dwarf hamster, but saw these cute little guys running on the wheel and doing flips in it. I took them home and they seem to be adjusting. I will try to put some toilet paper tubes in the cage to see how they like that. I'm hoping they will be less skiddish of me as they grow use to their new habbitat. I am a happy new mommy :o)
High school science experiment white mice went from 10 to 25 in three weeks. I am sure some of the babies were eaten by the adults. Please tell us how we know which is male and which is female, and what do we do with all these baby mice???
Saying that mice are nice babysitters for their young, our mice gave birth they had 7 babies and now there's only one... they are eating them! That isn't good parenting.
I have a charming pure white mouse named SIMON. He is very cute and intelligent too. He likes luxurious living. He is a cool dude. I just love him a lot. I love to play with him. I forget all my worries and tensions in the company of SIMON. He is just like my bay. I am emotionally attached with him. Simon is the cutest and coolest mouse in the world and I love him endlessly.
i have three mice for nearly a year now ( birthday 8th May 09) and one of them (hunka munka) has what i believe cancer. She was born the runt of the litter and as soon as i noticed a problem with her was when she was at her flea age and wasn't growing much hair near the scruff of her neck. Quite a few months later she formed a lump at the section of less hair. She has been perfectly fine (eating, drinking, running on the wheel, perfect mouse behaviour) until yestrday night when she formed a large lump pretty close to her front leg, this has been her only second tumor and still acted normal, so i seemed she wasn't in any pain. But the next day that afternoon back from school her whole body seemed bloated. A cancer cant grow that quick can it? It looks as if she is pregnant, but babies cant just form so quickly out of the blue can they? Anyway i also have noticed her behaviour. She seems to stay in her house. I took her out and she didn't seem to be in pain, no sqeaking etc, she is walking quite normally but it looks really akward. Is it her time? Should i take her to the vet and put her down. I really do not want her to be in pain? If it isn't cancer, what other measures should i take? Thankyou
My daughter just got a pair of pet mice, one a dusty brown and black named "Shadow", and the other a creamy white and tan that she named, "Peaches". Unfortunately, one of our cats was absolutely fascinated with her new "sisters", and knocked their cage (aquarium-style) off the little desk where it had been placed. Shadow seemed none the worse for wear, but Peaches' left eye was a little "goopy" (technical term) and now she leans over to the left wherever she goes. She has no other difficulties that we can see. My wife surmises that in the fall Peaches suffered an injury to that eye, and may even have been blinded there. Everytime that she approaches her food dish or her water bottle, she does so favoring her right side.
I am getting a mouse soon and I am going to call it Dannan because it is an irish name and I love irish people. I'm unsure if I should get a girl or a boy as girls are prone to tumors and boys smell bad. So I will mull it over and decide when the time comes I suppose. If you are naming a pet I recommend naming it after something you love!
I just recently bought 3 new female mice, Marley, MoMo and Friday. They all have their own individual personalities and love it when I re-arrange the cage layout so they can explore. They are all spoiled rotten and like taking seeds from my hand. Mice are very easy to keep pets and in exchange for a home and food, can bring hours of enjoyment. I highly recommend buying a mouse as a small, inexpensive pet.
I just inherited a little grey feeder mouse that my son-in-laws snake didn't want for food. Having just lost my pet rat four days ago, I agreed to adopt the mouse. I've named him Moxie, and am looking forward to getting to know this little guy. He seems very tame, friendly, and curious, but mercy, they are so much smaller than rats. I'm grateful for the information on this site, because there are some differences between caring for the ratties and mousers. Thanks for the helpful info.
I have had my three fancy mice for a little over a year. Chrysanthemum is the oldest and I got her 3/2/08 and Lilly is the middle mouse I got her in April, then I got Wimberly next. They are named after the children's books I used to read when I was a kid. I am 18 yrs old and I spoil my mice rotten. They are my three little princesses! They have 2 cages which are connected and one of them is three stories tall! and the other is 2. Pretzel treats are their favorite treats! Mice are now my hobby and I hope that mine live happy lives for a long time :)
