the color mouse as a pet

The color mouse represents the domesticated form of the house mouse.

It owes its name to its variety of colors.

Countless colors, which are divided into color groups and exciting sounding color drawings explain the expression “color mouse”.

But it’s not just their looks that are exciting. A look at their nature and their extraordinary senses shows how fascinating the little rodent is.

Color mice are not only characterized by their friendly nature and curiosity. In particular, they are highly social. They live in groups in which they take care of themselves. It is therefore not appropriate to keep a color mouse individually.

In contrast to rats, the cute rodents are not very keen on cuddling with humans.

Color mice can live up to 4 years if kept well.

From the fourth week on the females are sexually mature. Your wearing time is about 21 days. Depending on the age and nutritional status of the mother, a litter of up to 18 young can see the light of day. Immediately after birth, the female again presents herself as ready to conceive.

Mice are often referred to as “beginner pets” for children – but be careful!
They are demanding pets! Keeping these active creatures as pets requires extensive knowledge to avoid improper handling and ensure a long, healthy life.

Color mice are very fragile due to their size – they are not an easy-care entry-level pet for children.

There are some animal welfare issues to consider when deciding to keep colored mice as pets.

And I mean…You have to adopt mice only from animal shelter.
However, here you should be aware that the “supply” is not determined by the “demand”, but by the taxes and emergencies that arise at animal shelters and foster homes.

Many interested persons decide on the look: agouti, black and albino are not in demand, “exotic” colors and drawings such as siam, blue or merle are much more in demand but end up in a shelter less often.

In addition, the pre-history of animals does not always leave the optics of some emergency mice without a trace.

Missing limbs, scars, eroded ears and the like tell of a difficult past of the animals, which is usually associated with incorrect posture.

As with all animals, these animals can also become lovable, trusting companions if you give them a chance despite their appearance.

Never buy a breeding animal. Adopt one from the animal shelter.

My best regards to all, Venus
