I have an adorable caramel coloured mouse called Tango, he is sooooooo cute! I have been begging my parents for a pet for years, and I'm going to get a proper mouse house for him for my b'day and possibly another mouse, because I'm currently keeping him in an old canary cage(LOL)!

Hello, I bought 2 mice a month ago (Marvin & Bella) at my local petstore. They used to be snake food, I felt bad and didn't much care what colour they were, as long as I had a mouse! Well, yesterday Bella gave birth to 14 babies! So now I'm doing a lot of shopping for cages and toys when it comes the time to separate them. The more you have, the bigger the risk that they could get sick. So I have your page on My Favorites, this way I'll be prepared just in case! So thank you.

hi... I have had my pet mouse for about 2 months now. I LOVE her so much! I named her Cow because she is black and white lol. About two months ago I was walking into a pet store and they had her by her tail about to feed her to a snake. She was so cute! So I told the man I would take her. He charged me 15 bucks but it was worth it. I don't know what type of mouse she is... snake food I guess, lol. Any ways thanks for this site, it helped me out a lot.

my pet mouse, "steve", is walking in circles and his head is tilted. I saw that this means he has an ear infection... so am am going to take a cotten swab and dog ear drops. I hope it works!

I had a mouse in my house for 3 weeks that was too smart for the dang traps. Well, I walk into the kitchen one morning to find two baby mice, brand spanking new, on floor. I pick them up and put them into a container. I started to get attached and so did my daughter and son, ages 1 and 3. I went out and came home that night to find one had died, no big shocker. But then I turned around, and there was another one laying close the same spot as previously! I put that one in with the live one after I scooped out the dead one. Later that night around 1 am, I opened an empty wipes container, lined it with a washcloth for warmth, put on gloves, and washed the babies. After I put the two in the wipes container, I turned around to find another baby! I cleaned that one too, and then I put some vit. D milk (at room temp) in a syringe and fed the babies. They ate pretty well. After meal time, I played them a bit, watched them roll over in my hands and squeek a few times. The next morning, I woke up to feed them and realized that one was about to die, gasping for air. So I held it and was petting it, hoping that it would go in peace. Poor little guy. I want the mice out of my house, they poop everywhere, but those poor babies, I don't know how to take care of babies that should be nursed by their mother.

Hi, I have 2 pet mice. I want to know how to differentiate which is female and which is male. I also want to know if once the babies are born, will the mom or dad eat them up.

We had out mouse, Polkadot, for three to four months. When we got him, he was pregnant, so we came to find out that it was a boy. It was my daughter's mouse, but he came to be part of our family. We all loved him. He was a little strange to us, but cute as can be. He passed away in his sleep yesterday, may he rest in peace. He is loved but not forgotten.
