Some photos of my meece

I realised yesterday that I've never gotten good photos of my mice so decided to get some when they were all active after I cleaned their tank out. Thought you guys would appreciate them.

This is their tank, it's an aquarium with no lid. They love having all the space to run around and it's cool that I can put loads of stuff in for them. It's my friend's tank though and they are taking it away at the end of June so I need to find a new mouse home.


This is Drum, the little one of the bunch. She was my first mouse along with her sister and I got them when they were tiny babies, but her sister got sick and died two weeks after I got them So I got the other three from a mouse rescue.


After a while I wanted them to stay still for the pictures so I gave them some food. Never fails, lol
At the back is Magnet, left to right in front are Cracker, Penfold (Cracker and Magnet's mum) and Drum.


In this pic you can kind of see Drum has a bit of a hunchback. She's had it ever since she was little. It doesn't seem to slow her down but I hope it doesn't get worse when she gets old. Is this a common thing in mice?


And just some more...











Hope you liked em

They are so cute!!! I love their coloring! The black and white ones are my favorite. I'd love to have one someday. I love your tank setup too.

Just a local pet shop I think it was called Pet Palace or something. I want to get them a bigger one because they all try and run in it at the same time but they don't fit, lol.

You can see the middle bit that the wheel spins on is all broken, it's supposed to be solid plastic but it's full of holes. That's cos the wheel started squeaking really bad after a few weeks, so I oiled it with a bit of sunflower oil. It stopped the squeaking but then the mice all started chewing it to try and get at the oil. They are pigs

And thank you both, they are very nice mice. I'd never seen black and white mice like this before I got them. Everybody calls them 'cow mice'

They're so gorgeous! I was certain that Drum was going to be my favorite... until I scrolled down and now I can't pick a favorite! They're all so precious. I've never seen any quite like them, they're just so pretty.

Cowgirls are like barbwire, handle with care.

I have to admit I think Drum is my favourite (don't tell the others, lol) just because she is the smallest but also the bravest, and she looks a bit like a tiny badger
