I love having mice. I just got 2 new males. They are very small and adorable, I named them louie and mikey. I like having mice because they are small, easy to care for and, fun to play with, also they do not bite and become very tame with you. They even whine for your attention sometimes! letting you know they want to play.! I love them very much. hope you consider having one!

I have two female fancy mice. They are sisters. They are great pets for my Kindergarteners and for my daughter who takes care of them on some weekends and holidays. They are not messy and are very sweet and cuddly. They will eat right out of your hand if treated nicely and allowed to get to know the handler. If you are looking for a first pet or an easy to take care of pet, they are great. My daughter loves giving them little bits of fresh carrot or pear and keeping fresh water in their cage at all times. I change their cage once a week with fresh bedding. That is how easy and fun it is to own fancy mice! Great Pets!!

Thank you !! My mouse is really sick right now, and I was trying to figure out what was wrong with it. Now I know! I'm trying to get it to be more active right now. I think it has pneumonia or a respiratory infection. I really hope it gets better.

Your website is the best website I've seen so far on mouse research, and you give a lot of helpful tips on raising, breeding and choosing mice. Your site has helped me on breeding my own mice. Thanks and keep up the good work on the site, it's great!

I bought 2 female mice from a local pet store, and when I got them home they were very skittish and jumpy. i still havent gotten them used to me but one of the mice was a male and one was a female. two days ago my mouse had babies and i have been waiting for this for a while. i used to bred mice when i was younger and i absolutly love them. This site is very helpful for me because i forgot all the basics as it has been atleast 8 years since i had a mouse have babies. the babies are doing very good now and she had 10 of them. The mother mouse is black and white, her name is Yoshii. The Father is brown and white and his name is tommae. But I always though you had to take out the father mouse when the mother had babies. i've been told that they eat them but i guess you can't believe everything you hear! Well thanks again for making this page, its really helpful!

I have brought my mouse to school and he always hides. He is a male and his name is squeek. I have brought him out twice and both times he has peed on the floor. I hope I don't have to bring him back home.
I have read everything on this website and it is is very helpful. Now I know why my mouse is not so active, he needs toys! Thank you animal-world.com!

Mice are very cute and fun to take care of! If you put a treat beetween your fingers and lower it towards the mouse, it will take it from you!
