these are some cute mice that I filmed at the pet shop

Housing lab mice with pet-shop mice gives them more human-like immune systems.

Vintage playset in very nice, clean condition. From Kenner's 1993 “Pet Presents Assortment / Pet Shop Collection.” Very cute Littlest Pet Shop Mice, maze and accessories. The standing and sitting mice are magnetized and like to “run” in the maze while chasing after the magnetic cheese. The sleeping mouse likes to hide out in the burrow. Terrarium is 2 1/2" x 5" x 2" high.
Since pet shops purchase feeder mice from the most inexpensive breeders, these mice are often contaminated with diseases that shorten their lives.

Food needs to be kept available at all times. Laboratory pellets are the best basic main diet. You can find them in pet shops or feed stores bagged in small quantities. If lab pellets are not available in your area (you may have to ask the store owner or manager if they can get them if not normally stocked). A high quality dog food (not over 8% fat content) from the pet shop/feed store fed equally with a rat/mouse grain mixture is a good substitute. Complement either diet with small amounts of salad greens (clean, freshly washed, non-contaminated or sprayed, dandelion leaves can be a treat for mice), fresh fruits and vegetables (NOTE: any fresh foods should be washed when necessary), and whole wheat bread. Be sure to clean out any uneaten fresh foods daily to avoided bacterial growth. Be sparing with oily seeds, nuts, and grain mixes. Dry cat food should only be given to growing youngsters or nursing mothers because of the high fat and protein content. DO NOT give your pet treats such as candy (chocolate can’t be digested by mice), cookies, potato chips, or other junk food. Treats such as dry, healthy, low-sugar cereals (Cheerios, puffed wheat/rice/millet, spoon-size shredded wheat, etc.), plain popcorn, wild bird seed, and dry oatmeal, are okay and will be eagerly devoured by your pet. Do not feed your pet through the screen top of the cage (if the screen is large enough to do this), or if you use wire rat cages, as your pet mouse will learn that things poked in are food and grab anything poked in including your finger.

You could ask around at the pet shops, vet offices, feed stores, and schools to see if they would take any for pets or know of anyone looking for pet mice. However, the first priority, if you haven’t done it already, is to separate the boys from the girls NOW or you will have hundreds of mice to find homes for. Unfortunately, not many people want mice for pets, especially the males as they have a natural musky smell. You can only have one in a cage as they fight and can kill each other. You may have to just take all the males to the pet shop to sell (most likely for snake food) and concentrate on finding pet homes for the girls.• Telling males from females. The person you buy your mice from will likely know what sex the mouse is, but no one is perfect and even experts make mistakes occasionally. The best way to determine a mouse's gender is to inspect the distance between the genitals and anus. This distance will be greater in males than in females. If you are buying your mice from a pet shop, be sure to check the sex of the mouse before you buy it. Pet stores are notorious for incorrectly sexing mice. • Though many pet stores sell mice, these mice are not usually the healthiest or most robust individuals. It may be difficult to locate a mouse breeder in your area but doing so will give you the best chance to have a mouse that will be happy and healthy for a long time to come. Your best bet to find a local mouse breeder would be to check your local paper or advertisements on bulletin boards at your nearest pet shop or animal care store.When choosing the right mouse to take home with you, you are spoilt with a choice of over 40 varieties. Beyond the ever-popular “white mouse”, there isof course also the common house mouse, the typical pet shop type, and as far as the crème de la crème of pet mice are concerned - the thoroughbreds. These range in colours from sable to pearl and cinnamon, and beyond to the likes of Himalayan, blue and silver. You will want to make your choice carefully and according to your taste, soon after which you will be falling in love by looking into the bright and lively eyes of your newly acquired pet.
