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.

Is it a good idea to have a pet mouse and pet cat?

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.

Can pet mice eat broccoli?

if the broccoli is cleaned first, very well, and it is raw it is suitable for a mouse to consume it in small peices. you must remember though to take it out of the cage as with any fresh food, after approximately 24 hours to insure it does not pick up bacteria that will make your mouse sick. :) you may also want to ask a pet expert at a petstore what your mouse's diet can incude. it would be best to check with them before feeding your mouse any food that you are unsure of. i wish your pet the best!!!


Are pet mice freindly?

Yes, pet mice are usually friendly. I held a mouse at the pet store and it was a being a calm little mouse. Mice are also funny. Sometimes, you will see a bunch of them on an exercise wheel at the pet store and the wheel will go all the way around and some mice fall off. They are nice, cute, funny, and if you are interested in buying one, then you should go to your local pet store. I have 2 pet rats at my house. Never put a rat cage and a mouse cage next to each other, or the mouse will be scared. Also, a rat and a mouse should NEVER be in the same cage, unless you want a dead mouse and an angry rat. The rat will eat the mouse.
