What is it?

Lily is a two-year-old mouse.

Where do I get one?

We got Lily and another mouse, Pippin, from a breeder we found online. Together, they cost $15. We had a tragedy last month when Pippin died.

What does it cost to keep one?

Food costs are negligible, and we got an exciting-looking cage that cost $40 to $50.

What maintenance is


You should clean out the cage about once a week.

Who does it suit?

They're good for kids but an adult will probably have to clean out the cage.

Pros and cons?

They're no fuss, no bother

compared to a cat or a dog.
