Mice are very friendly animals and make great pets! These small animals are good pets for children or for beginners. Mice become attached to their owner's very quickly and like to ride in your pocker or on your shoulder. These cute little critters make good companions and are quite easy to care for. This is a guide for tips about mice and caring for their general diet.
Mice love to try new things and can even eat food that you eat on a daily basis. Be creative and try giving your mouse a variety of different foods to see which ones he or she likes to eat. Mice have different tastes and personalities, find out which kinds of foods your mouse likes or doesn't like. Make sure you supply your mouse with fresh water every day. Water bottles are best for your mouse as they tend to soil water dishes.
You should feed your mouse in the evenings and leave the food in its cage overnight. Remove any uneaten food the following morning. Leaving uneated food inside your mouse's cage can be harmful to its health. A mouse's diet is fairly simple. In fact, anything that is good for you to eat is most likely good for your mouse as well. Have fun finding out the different types of foods your mouse likes to eat.
