hihi,
I just got 2 mice today . . . . .
I went to stores and I couldn't find any mouse food anywhere. So I decided to get some wild bird seed. They loved it!!!
Thanx for reasuring me about the water bottles and stuff. My mice already know how to use one.
BTW, by turning a tiny cardboard box into a triangular prism, mice should like to sleep in it. Mine do.

I don't recommended picking your mouse up by the middle of the tail. I did that the other day, the little thing moved, and his tail skin peeled right off!! It was the most horrifying thing I have ever experienced. I would never recommend picking up a mouse that way, you never know how he's going to react as was the case with my little mouse. Lukely, the bony part that remained fell off during the night and now it's all healed, but minus half his tail. Again, I would not recommend picking a mouse up that way. Besides that I love your site, it's full of very useful and interesting information. Thank you

I have several small animals, but my two mice, Wilbur and Peaches, are two of my favorites! Your site was such a help with learning how to keep them happy and healthy! Thanks!

I have been working in this field for many years, breeding and caring for mice, i have to say, is the most satisfying endeavour i have ever experienced. Mice are delightful creatures ,and with the proper attention and caring environment, they will learn to recognise and trust the hand that feeds them; with perseverance, you will be able to develop a strong bond with your tiny friend/s! As far as treats go, i have discvered that mice adore peanut butter (this was by accident i must say)...its probably not a good idea to feed them this. Instead, sunflower seeds, dry bread , cashew nuts and grapes make lovely treats.

I just bought two female "Fancy" mice today. They are adorable, one of them already threw a fit. They are very scared of me, but I think it's okay to be like that at first. They need to get to know me first.

i had a mouse named roxy and she was fabulous. she died yesterday morning.her sister muffin was so sad. i miss her so much. we buried her out back, but since muffin was sad and needed someone too play with i went to Petsmart and got another mouse. i named her missy boo. we call her missy for short. she and muffin snuggled all last night even though they weren't from the same cage. if you take mice from different cages and plan to put them in the same cage i suggest that you hold them in your hands gently and let them bond. this is easier to do with girls than with boys.

I recently went to the pet store with the intention of adopting a kitten. It was then that I saw the two most beautiful little mice. I bought them instead. Their names are Oreo and Butterscotch. They are becoming more comfortable with me and I enjoy them. Your website is a wonderful place.
