    Mice are about as much work as a hamster. If you can handle a hamster then you can handle mice. 

    If you want a single mouse make sure you get a male. They must be housed alone. If you want multiple mice you need to get females. They must be in pairs or groups.

    Mice are much like hamsters except best kept in pairs or more.

    They are good climbers unlike hamsters and keen sense of balance with that longer tail.

    They do bond strongly with human keepers, not dirty vermin at all.

    A great YouTube channel to learn about mice is -Creek valley critters'.

    My last 5 were 4 females and a neutered male together. One big happy family.
