Kiwi, the Pet of the Day
Name: Kiwi
Age: Two months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Fancy mouse
Home: Canada
   This is my pet Fancy mouse, Kiwi! She's probably about two to three weeks in this picture. She is very hyper and often is looking for a place to hide, but she is extremely friendly at the same time. She loves to snuggle under my hair and sometimes sits on my shoulder watching the computer screen while I browse. I actually got Kiwi because my previous mouse, Ray, had recently died. The house felt so empty without active mice, so I and my mom started calling pet shops to ask if they have fancy mice. We finally found a place close to us and when I got there, I knew Kiwi had to be mine. She may not have looked like my old mouse, but she definitely acted like her! She sat there, being squished against the glass by other mice while eating a piece of food and I laughed so hard, she actually stopped eating to look up at me.

    Kiwi is a little nervous still with handling, but once she's out of the cage, she turns all lovey dovey! I'm hoping to teach her to come to my hand when called and maybe, I can teach her a few more tricks! But so far, this is my sweet Kiwi, just being her adorable self.
