About Us
Rodney, the Pet of the Day
Name: Rodney
Age: Four months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Mouse
Home: Missouri, USA
   Rodney is special because he is the only mouse I have that will sit on your arm all day if you feed him. (His favorite food is green beans.) He also loves to have the side of his face scratched...he will even lift his front paw up and thump it:)

    I started raising mice in February with the intentions of selling them as "feeders" to people who needed them. As I got to know each mouse personally, though, I stopped looking at them as just food for reptiles and started looking at them as individuals. I still sell some as feeders but I also have started showing them and keeping records on all my mice and litters. I evaluate them at two-and-a-half weeks of age and if they have the personality and are nice quality they stay with me until I can find a suitable home for them. I think that mice are great pets and can be very lovable and fun.
