I used to keep fancy mice but I gave them away because they STANK!!!! They stank up the whole house!!! They're really cute but they poop all the time!! And if you decide to get more than one, make sure they're the same sex, because they breed almost every week!! :eek: I thought they were a lot of fun to have, but they require a lot of cleaning! ;)

Mice are nice pets. They do smell though, males more than females. So your best bet is 2 or more females (they really need to be in groups or they are unhappy)

They are more fun to watch than to play with, but can be tamed to be held.

I love the feel of their tiny feel in my hand and their little skinny tail wrapped around my finger. And their whiskers are the cutest :D:D

Mine never exactly 'stunk up the house'....I found that their cage needed cleaning about every three days, and you should ideally sprinkle a little bit of the old bedding on top of the new so that the cage still smells like them. Also, half a teaspoon of vanilla extract in the water bottle did wonders for neutralizing the odor of the boys' pee.

They never do stop pooping on you when you hold them, although they do it less if they're comfortable with you.

Mice are fun pets, but they are a lot of work so be prepared! :)
