Mice care

Pet mice can be great, entertaining little pets, but have a few specific housing and dietary needs. Before you buy a mouse, make sure you have the time, space and money for your mouse to live a healthy, happy life. 

Mice can live from between one to three years, and although this may seem like a short amount of time, it's still a commitment. Mice are social animals, so you may need to consider getting at least two! Make sure you do your research before you commit to mouse ownership.
