A wonderful site. I recommend it for almost any kind of pet owner there is! And if they have never been here then they better!

I have a black male mouse and a brown female, she is about to have babies any day now. I'm so excited. I can't wait to watch them raise their babies. From what I've read I'm going to keep the dad in. I also have gerbils which I love also. But mice are so much more personable, I think. Mice are great pets. they're clean but their urine smells stronger than gerbils or hamsters. Mice are cool pets. I recommend anyone thinking about a little pet to get a mouse or two.

Fancy Mice are my favorite pets! I have two Females and their names are Cali and Snow-bell. Cali is very hyper and loves to run on her wheel and snatch the food out of my hand before Snow-bell gets any. Snow-bell usually stays in her box or behind their wheel and sleeps and grooms herself all day.

I have 2 female mice, Kora and Laila. Laila is white with black patches lopsided down her hack and half of herface. Kora is a long-haired gray, with a beige underside. Laila is not very sociable with people. Kora is just the opposite! Oh, I love them!

i have several mice myself and think they are a interesting pet to keep. i had a couple of litters already and watching the babies grow up is the sweetest thing to watch. it is hard to let them go because they become a part of you, like your children. i sometimes stay up all hours of the night just watching them clean themself's and running around. i don't know, but i think that mice are cleaner then cats. because they get every square inch of their bodies, even in their ears! well, like i said, mice are the purfect pet to have!

I recently got three female mice to breed with my albino male, scott. the three females are all very pretty and i cant wait to see what there babies will look like, i also did the same thing last year, but with differnt mice and got some interesting results. the dad that time was brown and white spotted, the first female i bred had nine babies and about three looked like him, the second litter was with a albion female, that time 3 were all brown ant the other 3 looked just like the dad except they were all girls. the third litter was with a black and white banded female with a half black, half pink tale. unfortuatly, she wasnt very well after the birth and wasnt able to produce enought milk for her eight babies, however since the second liter had beeen born one and a half weeks befor i put the third litter with hers and was able to save five of them

I currently have a male and two females that i am breeding for genetic evaluation. Only one of the females ever has babies though. After the female (albino) and male (agouti) produced a litter, there are 7 brown and 5 white! This is the first step to determining his genotype, next i plan to breed him with a dilute brown or maybe black female. He is such a good dad! He grooms the mother, grooms the babies, cleans the nest, tends to the babies while the mother is "working out", and protects them. I was told to remove the male, but in my experience he helps out a lot. I rescued him from certain death in a bio lab. They make wonderful pets, and the babies are such a joy to raise!

wow this is very useful. i just bought 2 male mice(one beige and one white n black). they are adorable but the reason i had 2 buy these was that before when i had 2 male mice they fought and killed each other even though there were no other mice or any females so i was very sad. i also have had hamsters and rats that were cute but i like mice more. anyway they seem really happy and getting along. i just hope they stay that way. i wish i had females but they only sold males. neywys byes<3
