Pet Mice for Sale
Sold in multiple color variations.
New Up and Comers
We’ll be constantly taking photos of new pet mice and put them up for you to select. However once they are gone, chances are we will find another one similar, so just PM us and let us know what pet mouse you’re looking for.
NOTE:* The youngest pet mouse we can sell is a weaned mouse. After they are weaned they can typically survive without their mother’s milk. So once the mouse is feeding and drinking on his own will it become available for purchase as a pet. Please PM us with any questions.
Pet mice are mice that have been set aside because they fall into two categories:
- They are calm and not overly skittish
- They have some sort of unique patterns and/or colors.
For example, we have long-haired types, grey and white flecked types, spotted, banded and various colors like sandstone, chocolate brown, silver-white, black, and others.
NOTE:* Mice grow fast so once the mouse for sale is an adult, it may be pulled from the site for breeding purposes. The lifespan of a mouse is typically 2, sometimes three years.
Pet Mouse Care Tips
General Pet Mice Behavior
Pet mice or mice in general are typically very social and do well with other mice. They play and groom each other, play-fight and even use each other for pillows. They are entertaining and do better with more and more attention.
Your New Pet Mouse and You
Pet mice like other animals form impressions of you and the environment constantly. What this means is that if you are rough with them, abrupt or nervous – they will reply in kind. Of course there are always exceptions but as a general rule, if you are gentle and your environment is calm and free from sudden noise, outbursts and free from sudden jots and bumps, you’ll end up with calm and trusting mouse.
But the opposite is also true, which will make your mouse nervous and flighty. A nervous or scared mouse may shake or wag it’s tail as a warning, or may leap towards your hand to nip at it. This behavior is a result of fear and because of this will try to protect itself.
If your pet mouse ever attempts (or succeeds) to bite you, it doesn’t mean it’s time to get rid of it. Remember, it’s scared, so you’ll need to train it not to be an to do this requires patience and time as it gets used to more socialization.
Good rules are slowly trying to pick it up. Never grabbing. Using food as an incentive to coax it to you. If you want a calm and mild-mannered mouse – training is all part of the process. If you put in lots of patience – in time you’ll have an amazing little friend who trusts you.
Pet Mice With Other Mice
Sometimes pet mice will try to dominate others. This is common in both males and females, but can generally be curbed by pairing them when they are just weaned. Although some may still quarrel, mice do enjoy social interaction and so these issues will usually dissipate in time. It is important though to keep an eye on them, especially when they are new cage mates and to separate them if they are damaging/harming each other.
Males with Males
Males need to set dominance. In fact most of the odor and ruckus that comes from a mouse cage is due to this. They express their dominance through fighting, grooming and especially through urine or “marking” their area. I’ve had water bottles change color with a thick layer or “marking” from male mice. Typically they can be left to sort things out, but occasionally you’ll end up with a “bully” mouse that will need to be removed. Always remove the bully, or you will have trouble with your other cage-mates as he will turn his aggression towards others.
Females with Females
Females will for most part live in harmony but will be lethal to each other if you introduce a new female into a cage with another pregnant or nursing mother. They are very protective and will kill the other female stranger. If you already have a couple females living together with a male and they get pregnant, they help each other out. But always remember to be care when introducing another female, especially if there’s a male in the cage.
Males with Females
Most mice are social as stated, and aside from the issues mentioned above, mice live well together. But they are programmed to breed. So remember, in a few short months of keeping them together – you may end up with a bunch of new little new “friends.” If you do end up with them and want to give them away, mice are very maternal and we can put them in with our already nursing mothers in our collection. Just let us know, we’ll put get them adopted up.
There’s a ton of more things to discuss like food, caging, accessories, cleaning, health, watering, etc… we’ll have more articles up so check out our blog/articles section for that.
Remember: Enjoy your mouse and it will enjoy you back!
