||One year old|
||Brooks, Alberta, Canada|
was a petstore mouse, and he is a broken brindle Fancy Mouse. He is
very special. Over the year I've had him I have built a bond I've never had
with a mouse. I let him run free and can kiss his back without him being in
my hand. Here is a small video of how tame he is.
My Dad was taking snow off the roof yesterday and he got all hyper
thinking I was in the room wanting to be let out of his cage and given
treats, which I do every time I clean cages. I trained him to get in and out
of his cage. I know people think mice aren't smart but that was his second day of training. That
is a piece of popcorn he had. He will sniff my hand in the manner of a dog,
and lick pudding or peanut butter from my finger. He is a sweet, intelligent
boy and I love him!
He's a big fat squish that grabs my finger if I bug him and gives it a good
sniff, especially if I touch his belly. He loves pumpkin seeds like most of
my other mice, and peanuts. He hates being caught and put back in his cage
after running free every week though, and sometimes he nips me gently if I
bug him too much. I've started to try getting him to do hurdles but he
doesn't follow treats like other mice and instead grabs them. If I hold on
it's a tug of war or stalemate where he still won't let go! He has his own
opinions for sure.
