"I've had mice for a long time now. I recommend them as pets for someone who doesn't have much space, and wants a pet that is cheap. Mice can be a great starter pet for children that are mature enough to understand the fragility of such a small animal. I work in a petshop and see a lot of mice come and go every day, they're wonderful pets if you are willing to spend time playing with and taming them. Each of the mice have been handled daily from birth and are so friendly they run up and sit on my hand when I put it in their tank. I keep both boys and girls separately, but I recommend that you only own mice of one gender even if you keep them separatley unless you are intending to breed. No matter how careful you are, accidents do happen. If you're looking at getting pet mice, the best thing to buy is a tank with a secure lid, as long as there is plenty of ventilation. Paper cat litter or Carefresh are great bedding for a mice tank, but I add shredded paper and unscented tissues to their houses and nestboxes so they can have a comfy bed. My boy Aslan tears up his tissues and makes a huge nest he sleeps in the middle of, it's extremley cute (: An important thing to realise is that female mice especially may contract tumours, when this happens there is very little you can do besides having them put to sleep humanely at the vet's when the tumour begins to impend their movement. This happened to my little girl Esme a few months ago, and though it was very upsetting, I'm glad her life ended before she had to suffer. I breed my mice ethically occasionally to sell at the petshop where I work when we are low in supply, this way I can meet the owner's of their future homes. The only way I will sell one of my babies is if I believe the person will honestly care for that mouse as well as I would, because they are taken care of very well at home. "
