A quote from Mister Jinx the Cat, “I hates you miserable meeces to pieces.”

The name mouse comes from “mus”, a Sanskrit word meaning thief.

A group of mice is called a pack or swarm.

You can keep mice on a table without a cage because mice are afraid to jump off high vertical drops.

Mice can make their own vitamin C.

Mice like stale bread.

Though generally classified as herbivores and eat a regular diet of grains and fruit, mice will eat almost anything they encounter.

Some people worship mice in temples. (India)

Greeks and Indians (not Native Americans) thought mice were lightning bolts. (This is probably because mice have shorter legs back then their front, so their bellies rubbed the ground to make static electricity.)

Mice have been domesticated for hundreds of years. The Japanese have bred white mice for over 300 years. The National Mouse Club of Britain was formed in 1895.

Mice are nocturnal and are far more active at night than during the day.

Mice are able to see some colours; however, they do lack the pigment that allows them to see red. They see shades of black and white and may be able to distinguish blues.

Mice don’t have roots on their incisors (teeth).

Many people consider mice to be great pets, thanks to their entertaining antics and when tamed they show affectionate behaviour.

Contrary to popular belief, mice are exceptionally clean; often organizing their home into areas specific for food, shelter and bathroom purposes.

The average pet mouse lives between 1½–2 years. This is considerably longer than that of wild mice, which often live only for a few months.

In addition to the domestic mouse, other varieties include; Fancy Mice (with a variety of coat colours), Spiny Mice (with shorter, more bristly fur) and Zebra Mice (with attractive stripes marking their fur). People have also bred blue mice. (Why? Don’t ask me!)

Although mice are excellent climbers, in the wild they prefer to remain on the ground, constructing paths through the grasses and foliage to link areas of food, water and nesting supplies with their dens.

Some mice may play dead if they are frightened and cannot quickly escape.

They only eat about 3gms (0.1oz) a day and usually don’t need to drink as there is enough moisture in the food but if they do drink then it is only about 3ml (0.1 fluid ounce).

Mice don’t need laxatives as they do about 80 droppings per day.

Mice have gestation period of approximately 3 weeks and can have between 4–16 in a litter; they also can have 7–10 litters per year (depending on food supplies). They will nurse babies that are not their own. Babies will curl up when they are being carried.

Sexual maturity of the young starts approximately 8–12 weeks after birth.

In the wild their mortality rate is extremely high running at approximately 90%. (Beauty mate!)

The diseases carried by Mice are as follows; Salmonella, Hantavirus and Lyme Disease.
