Good Afternoon I Am A New Member September 05, 2004 12:06 PM

Good Afternoon, I am a new member and have a question, are there such a thing as "inch mice"? I have been told that there are and well, I would love to have a very tiny mouse as I am in a wheelchair and cannot handle a normal sized one because their cages are way too big. Thank you for taking the time to read my question. Sincerely, Dawn  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Hmm, I don't really know, but apparently my sister and mum saw some in a pet shop about that size. I looked it up on google, but it didn't say anything of interest. Maybe somebody else here will know...  [ send green star]

I think I have seen them in pet stores,too. They looked more like tiny gerbils than mice. I cannot remember what they were called. I believe I was told that they don't do well alone and need a friend. Let me check with a friend in the pet business and get back to you. Lee  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Like rats... the local pet shop avoids selling rats alone, they recommend buying them in pairs. I'm glad I buy them in pairs, my rat boys love each other so much.  [ send green star]
I found this info on "mini mice" - but nothing on inch mice September 06, 2004 7:40 PM

From: The Mini mouse. Usually a short haired black mouse with white markings. These have some kind of congenital defect in the back and tail, giving the mouse a stiff gait and a more stiff tail than a normal (Swedish or English) mouse has. Mini mice are commonly black or black and white. A few other colours may be seen.  [ send green star]

How cute, teeny mice! My mouse is big fat and fluffy with tiny paws.  [ send green star]
