I just got three more female mice. If I had never found this website, they would all be dead. Also, I wouldn't even have a mouse if it weren't for it. Thanks for all the information.

I got my first mouse in third grade after I saw a TV special on pet mice. His name was Scamper and he was by far one of the best small pets I've ever owned. I loved him so much, I got another little mouse named Squeakers from the same pet shop. They were my two little buddies, and I had Scamper until fourth grade and Squeakers until fifth. I then got hamsters, but I still prefer mice much more. They are the best types of small pets you could ever ask for! My mice never bit me, they always loved a little scratch behind their tiny ears, and they were my best friends. No matter what, I highly recommend mice as pets for children. I'm now in eighth grade and I'm planning on getting my seventh mouse. If you want a small, easy-care pet for a child, I'd recommend mice in a heartbeat.

I'm in 6th grade and I'm doing my science fair project about mice and diet and exercise. This website was very useful for my backround reasearch paper and final report. Thank you, but I just need the author and published date.

I've just gotten 13 mice recently [I know, big number]. I walked into the pet store, and happened to glance over the counter where the rodents were placed. Behind the counter is were they kept the feeder mice. The first mouse I spotted was a little baby blonde colored one, and I immediately fell in love. I bought him [supposedly] and a few others, and everyday I keep coming back for more. To keep them from being eaten, of course. So far I have five adults, 2 white males, and one white female, a black and white female, and then a grey and white male. Next I have 5 white babies, then a tan one, a grey one, and a greyish brownish one with a white stripe down his face. Though the babies are so much cuter, the adults are really the most calm, and a better choice for young children. I have mulitple siblings, and they all reached for the babies, but they ended up holding the adults,[since they were the ones not running away]. I find it very facinating when they groom themselves, it's almost like a self anti-depressent medication. They're very calming, inspiring creatures, I've made multiple sketches in my art class of my mice. Some of my best work so far...

My fancy mouse seems to be chewing the tip of her tail. Is there anything that I can do to prevent it???

I just got two new baby mice. They are so cute and smart! When I first saw them, I wanted to jump off the walls. They run on the wheel together. Sometimes one of them would go faster than the other one. The slower one would get started and would hold on while the other keeps running. How will I ever live without these acrobats?!

Never pick a mouse up by the middle of the tail! it is always the base or it will slough off or break!

I have mice and one had 12 babies. They are awesome. They are about a week old on Thursday night. I find mice very interesting. I love them too.

I am thinking about getting a little rodent friend and mice are just so cute, I must get one! I saw some in a little cage at a museum and I thought omg they are so cute. I know most mice are considered dirty but my pet mouse would be clean as a whistle!

I have four mice. 3 differen't species. I have 3 Egyptian Spiny Mice (Dustfinger & Jinx), one Church Mouse (Firefly) which I raised since she was just weened from her mother (her home had been destroyed and she was just sitting on the ground so I cared for her and found out that she had a slight eye infecton so I put some eye cream for mice in her eye and she was healthy within two weeks). I used to have another Church Mouse that I raised as well (Clover) but he got out from the cage when I was feeding them (he was a very skittish mouse and didn't like me very much) and my cat caught him and killed him. I was heart broken when I found out. Even if he didn't like me I still loved him and raised him and I do miss him and I feel terrible that Firefly doesn't have a friend anymore. I just bought a male Fancy Mouse (Echo) so that Firefly would have a friend but I came to the conclusion that Church Mice and Fancy Mice do NOT get along. They fight so I'm seperating the 45 gallon tank in half and might be getting another fancy mouse (a female). This site is amazing! It gave me so much great information on mice that I didn't know about. Thank you so much!
