New mouse! I just couldn't leave him....

I got a new mouse today. It really didn't make me that popular with my husband. First of all, we already have two cats, two rats, two gerbils, and four mice. All rodents live in our rather small bedroom as our cats have the run of the rest of our small house. But still. I just couldn't leave him.
________________________________
It all started when we went to the pet store. The way it always does. Anyway, my husband was stairing at the mice in a sad resigned way. So I can over to look. There running on the wheel was a long haired mouse. He was in the midst of some of the most beautiful mice I have ever seen. Golds (they were so gold that they didn't look real) grey and white spotted, orange, yellows.... But he was the one who caught my attention.
_________________________________
My husband knew what was going to happen when I saw that mouse, and sure enough, the questions came. "Josh, is that mouse long-haired? Wow! He has pink eyes!" (I love pink eyed anything) Then the clencher. "WOW!!!!! HE'S A SATIN!!!!" And he was.
_________________________________
Of course that meant that along with the satin-long haired-multi colored mouse ($1.99 feeder mouse), water bottle holder ($4), a house ($4), a lid and tank (I gave up keeping track by then), it came to $33 or so. My husband was thrilled. Not really. But he loves him now! Luckily I had some extra wheels, bowls, bottles, ect at home.
_________________________________
Now without further ado, my new male mouse, Bodhi (meaning Enlightenment) He joins (not litterally) my other mice, Yin, Yang, Karma, and Zen.




I don't know what color he is. He seems to be a mix of orange, red, and grey. I've never seen quite the like before, but then I've really only been into gerbils before this year (when I got my two rats and four other mice).

I love them so much. I love getting new friends.....and figuring where to put them in a tiny room with a lot of large animal enclosures.

Ha ha! LOL I'm on the "I want a new animal" binge right now too! I want a "tomato frog"! My husband keeps saying "no", but I'm with clairbee1 . . . I do the "eyelash thing" and I almost had my husband this weekend! LOL I LOVE your new mousie. What an unusual and beautiful color. I have never seen that color and I have never seen a long hair mouse before. COOL. Probably a good thing. hee hee. I'd have them too.

Aww.. You know, in the face he almost looks like a hamster I use to have named Beau. It was almost Deja Vu for me.

Thank you all so much for your sweet comments! I love Bodhi so much already! He lets me pick him up and isn't bitey in the least. His coat is so soft that you really can't feel it when you love on him. It's hard to explain. Today we went back to the petshop and most of his friends in the feeder bin were gone. I'm so so so so so so glad that we went to that petstore yesterday.

He's beautiful.
He looks like a fawn kind of.
I had a fawn boy that looked very similar,except a little lighter.
