Acquired: Pet store
Posted Mar 04, 2013
I had Minnie when I was living in an apartment was fed up with hamsters. I thought that I would give another small mammal a try and was not disappointed. She was very friendly and fairly easy to handle. Though she wasn't awake during the day very often, when she was, she was very pleasant and fun to handle.
The obvious drawback of any pet like this is that you have to clean the cage regularly. I found that my mouse's cage wasn't very easy to clean, but it also didn't smell very bad between cleanings, which was quite convenient.
She was a fun pet to have, with a relatively low cost to own (cheap-ish food and bedding, and Minnie herself was inexpensive to buy). Sadly I wasn't able to keep her long, but she was a great companion for a while!
