I have had my albino mouse for two years now. Her name is Moose and I am sad to say that she has a tumor growing on her side and had lost almost all hair on the area. I am very worried about it although she seems to eat and drink fine and continues to run around and visit. Mice make great pets and I am sad to know that she will pass soon.

I got some fancy mice for my birthday and they were really cute and I loved them a lot. They were both girls.(If you get a guy they stink, and DONT get a guy and a girl together because you may have countless baby mice!) Their names were Ella and Daisy and they were delightful. Ella bit sometimes but she was getting nicer. But a sad thing happened. :( Ella and Daisy developed some little bugs, like lice or ticks or mites. By the time I noticed, it was too late. My poor babies died the next day and we had a funeral for them. goodbye Ella and Daisy.

I love animals! Every one in the world should have at least one animal. All animals need a home. Love them and take care of them. They are just like humans.

they need a balanced diet and multi grain vegetable bars! Tyler and I, have just gotten a pet mouse that is the size of our pinky finger. mice need a loving family to take care of their social needs, or they will be mean. we love mice and should hail them

I curently have 5 female fancy mice as pets (Domino, Reeses, Leah-La, Teddy Bear, and Sarabi) they have no odor and i have never been bitten. I would recommend anyone to get a mouse as a pet, all 5 of mine have different personalitys and are fun to watch as they interact with one another!

I have had 2 Fancy Mice in 4 years. 1 boy and 1 girl. When purchasing my first mouse, I realized that some of the mice in the cage had swollen privates. Me and my mom questioned 1 of the petstore people and found out that they were boys and that was infact the way to spot genders in Fancy Mice.
When looking at mice for the second time,(in earnest at least)I noticed that 1 of the younger females had crusties around her eye. Immediatly I questioned the petstore helpers again and found that this was nothing fatal and just to wipe their eyes gently with a warm wash-cloth.

i am studying animal care at college and i found your site interesting, i have a mouse.

you said that you can pick a mouse up by holding the middle of the tail this is not true you can pull the entire tail off, you should hold the tail as close to the body as possible, i dont like this way of handling i scoop the mouse up like a hamster it dosent put strain on the body
