When my mice got sick I spent around $500 total on vetbills and medication. When they are younger they tend not to get sick but as they get older they catch URI easily. One of my mice was deemed terminally ill, Ophelia my rescued snake food/rescued from a photo shoot mouse. Her immune system was so weak she was constantly needing medication and constantly having to see a vet for health checks. Most of my vet bills were because of her and on top of it she was allergic to everything and had to take allergy medication and when she was 2 hurt her eye and needed that fixed too. I was told she would only live a year, and most mice live an average of two years...but my girls lived for 3 years including Ophelia who didn't die until 3.5 years old from a tumor. She was also a mouse star, she was in one indi film and SIX photoshoots.


That was Ophelia


Ophelia 2.5 years old.


Opehlia's tank mate Verona...learning the trades of a model mouse.


When she wasn't a cover girl she was in my pockets, her favorite place to be.

Yes, that book. lol
If I keep the setup really clean and good ventilation, should there be a minimal chance? Do you happen to know when the mice get euthanized in the pet stores? I really don't want to waste any time until it's time.

Okay, he's still in Petsmart but I saw this father who was looking at him. Hmm... :L My dad was wondering how much money cages are so the plan seems to be working. I got to hold my mouse today, he was really small and cute. <3 I really hope I get to buy him.. ;-;

I kind of want a dumbo mouse...Wouldn't buy one from petco though...Of course the regular ones are adorable too...No breeders near me, so I would have to get one from Petco/Smart
