They eat the feces because the droppings have nutrients that the mouse needs that it didn't get the first time around. It's natural for them to eat the feces, so don't worry. It won't get sick and, like i said, it's good for them, so just let him at it.

Well If you wanted a pet mouse you shold go to the pet shop or vet and look around find the mouse you want and talk to the shop/vet owner and exsplain that you want the mouse but you have got a cat and then they will sort the rest out and if they think the cat will eat the mouse they will sort something out.

A pet mouse would live in a cage like a hamster cage.


Sunflower seeds, nuts, little pieces of fruit -- everything you would expect a mouse to eat. The pet store also has specially made mouse food if you want it. Have fun with your mouse!


They love to eat some human feces. I know since I have pet mice.


No. If you put any mouse with any rat the rat will kill and eat the mouse.


Yes, turkeys do eat mice... I just watched my pet turkey eat a mouse. If your cats will not keep them away, a pet turkey will!!


No you would not. As it is a pet mouse there would be no chance of any infection if bought in pet shop etc. If the mouse was once wild there may be a chance of infection. Just make sure to clean the wound.


A grey mouse, black mouse, white mouse, pet or wild, they all eat virtually the same stuff: seeds, nuts, fruits, some plants & insects.Pet mice don't have to eat insects, but if they do, don't just go out & grab bugs out of the garden, as that can make them sick. Get the specially bred insects from the petshop for a pet mouse.cheese,bread/wheat,oranges,seeds,nuts,trash,peanut butter


they drink water and eat crickets,beetles,and for big ones they eat a pinkie mouse


the best mouse to keep for a pet is female fancy mouse


Wild mice do not do well as pets. You would be better off if you went to a pet shop and purchased a pet mouse. They are cheap.


If the mouse is a pet mouse and not a wild mouse, no. The pet mouse will not have the fear of human scent.

You can, but it will not be as good a pet as a domesticated mouse.


AnswerFigure out urself This is not an answer but a suggestion.

Mickey Mouse has a pet dog named Pluto


Don't you mean the pet MOUSE ?It was a pet bird, not mouse.Jake


It depends. It is indeed possible to have a pet mouse and a cat living in the same household, but you would have to be incredibly vigilant to keep the mouse safe. The mouse's enclosure would have to be secure and sturdy enough to keep the cat out, and the enclosure, ideally, would have to be in a place where the cat would not be able to reach. A quiet room where the cat is not allowed to go is another idea. If you think you cannot provide a mouse with a safe and stress-free environment, then it would be ideal not to get one, as it would be unfair for both the mouse and the cat.


hi i would say a mouse but if you captured an ant it would live a lot shorter, but if you mean normal pets then a mouse


i would say the domestic mouse those are very common mice and recommended for a first pet


mice usually eat stuff such as 1.lettuce 2.tomato's 3.guinea pig food 4.apple 5.grapes mice do not eat cheese these are the good ideas to feed your mouse that is what my mouse eats
