I want a mouse!

I want a mouse so badly. I want a satin most and that's most likely what I'll get. I get two females and put them in a ten g tank. I need some info on how to take care of them. I don't want to breed them or anything I just want to have a pet.. I use to have a rabbit coco puff but we gave him to our cousins. I've seen pics of satins and I think I want a short haired satin. If anyone has any tips for me it would be much appreciated.

Thank you
Wildbettalover

Hey there,

Mice make lovely pets but if you are planning on keeping them in a fish tank you would need to make sure the lid is well ventilated and even then you would need to make sure they don't get too hot in summer.

Mice are a reasonably cheap pet to keep but the females can be prone to tumors and may need veterinary care later on in life. The females can live happily in pairs or groups but only a single male may be kept because two males will generally fight to the death.

Apart from keeping their enclosure clean, providing them with hiding places/houses and food and water they are pretty low maintenance and a lot of fun and very sweet. If you have any specific questions don't hesitate to ask. I am a mouse lover and had 13 plus a rat not so long ago and I know there are a lot of rodent lovers on here which I am sure would only to to happy to offer advice

I've never had mice but I've had 5 rats in the past. 2 died from tumors and the other 3 from respiratory disease. Unless you want to spend hundreds of dollars on vet bills within the next 2 years or watch an animal slowly suffer and die, I'd get your rodents from a responsible breeder. All 5 of my pet store rodents suffered in the end, and unfortunately the money hungry veterinarian just wanted that, money. He did nothing for my pets to make them feel more comfortable.

crafters glue works for making mouse decorations.

There is a wonderful forum I use to be a member on called Fun Mouse Forum run by a wonderful breeder. You can learn everything about mice and even locate local breeders who may be on the site ear you and ask about their litters. xD I wish I had my breeders already because I want to breed blue and chocolate satin mice. They are very beautiful. Still need to save to import my bucks from France though.
