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 :)

In August of 2007 I noticed a white mouse outside at my parents house. It was feeding on birdseed under a bird feeder. I thought this was odd. I called a pet store and they informed me that white mice don't live in the wild where I live and won't survive a cold winter. I told my Dad that if he could catch it, I would keep it for a pet. A couple weeks went by and I had a new pet. It took some time for him to warm up but once he did, he was my little buddy. I named him LUCKY. I often told him he was my "little dog" cuz he had such a personality. I have had so many hamsters growing up and none of them can compare to the intelligence of this little guy. I have also had dogs my entire life and this mouse was right up there with what joy they brought. I lost LUCKY this past weekend, he died in my hand. I was so lucky to find him and I am thinking of going to a pet store soon to get another.

It's the middle of February in Cambridge, Mass. There's still ice and frozen snow piled along the sidewalks, but not on the patch of soil where a concrete square had been removed from the sidewalk to allow a planting. As I approached that bare piece of earth tonight I was drawn to a white puff lying in the dirt. When I bent close enough to realize it was a mouse I was surprised that it didn't run off, and I assumed it was dead. Had someone else thought that it was dead also, and put it out in the trash, or was someone carrying it in his pocket and it crawled out? I gave it a little poke and was rewarded by seeing it begin to breathe rapidly. So I scooped it up and put it in my glove and put that in an inner pocket of my fleece. What else could I do? The temperature is in the 20's and he was just waiting to be some cat's midnight snack. I'm not sure that a mouse is just what I need at the moment, and who knows, he may have escaped from some lab at Harvard where he was infected with some bizarre and deadly contagion. But the warmth seems to have revived him and he seems quite comfortable in a heap of toilet paper with a little clump of oats and a tiny slice of apple, inside one of my Tupperware containers which now has a perforated cover. On your advice I'm planning to leave him alone except for necessary feeding and cleaning while he recovers from his great adventure. I have you bookmarked in case I need some more mouse rearing advice.

I had pet mice from when I was 12-17, and I miss them dearly. I started with a pair of females, an albino and a fancy black and white mouse from a pet store, and then about a year later, my mom adopted a little male from the Humane Society while she volunteered there. Later, after the two females passed away, I bought another pair and bred them with the male, so I ended up with a litter of 12 and another of four. I have so many great memories...and I miss my little mousers.

Omg I posted a message about my mice a month ago and now I realize that the mice that I bought were pregnent when I bought them. I went in to my room to feed them and I saw two newborn spiny mice. I had no idea they are so cute.
