You should not hold pinkies as soon as they are born, you should wait 2 to 3 days before handling them. Saying that most mothers dont care is not proper information. Improper handling can cause a mother mouse to eat her young. This would not be very pleasant to a new mouse owner. I understand this is only a general care page, but you should rethink and reword your section on mice, as there seems to be some incorrect and misleading information. I applaude you for your effort, but being an experienced mouse owner I know the truth.

I have found that mice make great pets because you can take them almost anywhere. I travel with my mice all of the time and they seem to enjoy the adventures that we have.
Some good treats I have found for my mice are cheerios and grapes. As for bedding, I have never tried pine, but they seem to like aspen a lot.
Thanks for the tips!
