Mice have peronalities too! If you keep two male mice in the same cage they will compete for territory and will nibble or even snap at each other to prove domination. If your pet fancy Mouse is fighing with another pull them apart and calm them down gently. Play with them for a few minutes. Some mice are shy and others are adventurous. Be sure to let them loose out of the cage in a safe area for about 15-30 minutes and if they seem shy try to be patient and play with them once-in-a-while. Tame mice will climb onto a persons hand willingly.

I bought 2 mice, a male and a female and they had 8 pups. I have pine (pestell shavings) and everywhere i read it says they're bad for the mice and will cause them organ problems. I was just wondering how accurate this information was because i don't want to risk they're health by buying this type of bedding. Otherwise the mice have no probelsm and it's really interesting to breed the mice because of the interesting colour mixtures that result and just watching them grow. I would recommend buying or breeding mice to anyone who's looking for an interesting experience and cheap entertainment.

Their home should have saw dust bedding and a good bedding for their home is wool made specialy for mice. it can be purchused at pet shops. They like to burrow their way in too. a mouse should feel safe in it and so should not be disturbed when sleeping in home. by home i mean a little house like thing inside the cage. they are good because they make the mouse feel safe.

Excuse me, but in your section for treatment for mouse diarrhea, you wrote to remove vegetation from the cage, but then said "not feed them at all for a few days until he appears to be getting better." This might be misinterpreted, and people may then not feed their mice for a few days rather than simply not feeding them fruits and veggies. I hate to sound petty, but a typo in the hands of the inexperienced may be lethal to their pet. Please correct this.

I recently received two mice from a friend of mine who works at a pet store. They were going to feed them to snakes and he couldn't stand the thought. One is a tan male named Timothy and the other is a white and silver(yes silver not grey) male named Pipsqueak. I keep them in seperate 10 gallon tanks and although I have to clean them every other day (because they're both male and in the same room)I wouldn't trade them for the world. I didn't think I'd like having a pet mouse but I really enjoy the companionship they provide and it's always interesting when one of them pokes their head out of my pocket when I'm talking to someone. It's a great conversation starter.

I love my mouse Helena. When I first went to the pet store I was looking for a rat, but then the mice caught my eye. I started asking the people working there about the mice and they had a very high opinion of them. So I figured, what the heck. So I brought little Helena home with me. Shes been living with me for some time now and shes very tame and loves to play and take naps on my stomach when im laying down watching tv. I thought it was going to be hard keeping track of her and I thought she would be very skittish, but shes not. I am so glad I got her and soon I will be making another trip to the pet shop to get her a friend (female of course.)

Hello I have two female mice. The big one is Lisa who is black and white and the smaller one is Maggie who is grey and white. They love their tunnels, home and wheel very much. Lisa crawls on my hand. It feels kinda nice but Maggie is too scared. I enjoy playing with them VERY much. They are the best. Thanks Animal-World for all of your advice. Bye now.
