I just got my 4 mice 3-4 weeks ago and i am finding them to be very in-expensive. i've found the more u handle them the friendlier they are. i regulary change my cage by moving pipes and i clean it every 3 days. I have had a rabbit, but they are more expensive and harder to look after. so i think that mice are cute, lovable, and in-expensive. the best pet ever

Mice are loveable creatures, and are a great pet for people of all ages. I have had mice for roughly a year, and have found them enjoyable and fascinating pets. Mice are sociable creatures who enjoy company. They can be kept alone, but ONLY if they are given a stimulating environment and continuous human contact and love. When choosing a sex, I think that females are easier to an extent. I have kept various female mice together, and they love snuggling up and grooming each other. The male mice I have had fought for dominance when they meet, but usually they can get used to each other in time. When breeding mice, I find the harem method useful; this is when three or more females are kept with one male over a period of time. Also, if a female is having pups, she should be kept with her female cagemate, because on most occasions, the cagemate will babysit for her, and help her with the pups. Furthermore, if two females are both having babies at aroung the same time, i find that they take care of each others litters. Mice are also easy and cheap to look after. good and safe cages for mice are the habitrail mini, the crittertrail cages and the S.A.M cages. all these cages have tube attachments so that you mouse can live in a stimulating and fun environment and although expensive, they are worth every cent. Glass aquariums also work well for my mice. I have added toys like toilet rolls, egg cartons and hammocks to play on.

I breed normal-eared lionheads and they are really fun.
I'm the only breeder in MT who raises lionheads and I love the babies. I've won 15 BOB's with them in 15 shows. I always have babies for sale.

hi fellow mouse lovers! My nickname is Mouse. I have 2 female mice, named peanuts and smudge. A tip: Do NOT feed your mice peanuts! They love the oil in peanuts and will overeat. Being a mouse, overeating is a drastic thing. I am trying to teach my mice to do a trick. If anyone knows a good one it would be great if you could post it! Mice are intelligent animals! -Mouse

I used to be a gerbil person, but one day I saw a lone mouse at the pet store all alone and felt so sad for it I bought the little thing and brought her home with me. I named her Catnip b/c it just seemed like the most obvious name for a mouse and she is so much fun. She'll do all sorts of neat tricks like walking a tightrope or playing dead which I have no idea how she learned for popcorn. She likes to sit on my head while I'm on the computer and more than once I've discovered her in my pocket while I was out running errands or going to the movies. How she gets out I'll never know.

I had 3 pet mice, who all lived for 4 years. After the 2 older ones died, i felt sorry for the younger mouse remaining. So i decided to get it a couple of companions. This was a mistake. The two new young mice seemed to gang up on the older one. Soon they were fighting and squabling over territory. I thought it was only temperary but was shocked to see the older mouse bleeding in the morning (a finger missing!!). So i moved her to a smaller extra cage. It seems that she was too used to her other companions and the 2 new mice werent friendly..
