Millie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Millie
Age: Six months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Fancy mouse
Home: Canada
   This is Millie. She is a six-month-old fancy mouse. When I went to the pet store to buy her, she was the first one there that I noticed. I loved the way she looked at me, and I knew right away that she would be perfect.

    When I took her home with her sister, Kuna, she was a little bit shy at first. But we soon fixed that. She quickly learned to trust me, and walk on my hand. It took her a while to learn that she can't try to eat me, but it was ok. She loves it when I gave her fresh fruit or vegetables, including watermelon. She likes meeting new people and running around outside her cage. When I let her outside, she plays and runs around, but then when I carry her back to her cage and close the door, she gives me those same eyes that she did in the pet store. She puts her nose right up against the wires and gives a tiny little "squeak!"

    Although I know that mice don't live for very long, I also know that some day when I wake up without my little Millie, waiting for me at the cage door, my heart will be broken. She is my little treasure.
