Species
A mouse (plural mice) is a small mammal belonging to the order of rodents. The best known mouse species is the common house mouse (Mus musculus). It is also a popular pet. In some places, certain kinds of field mice are also common. This rodent is eaten by large birds such as hawks and eagles. They are known to invade homes for food and occasionally shelter.
.The American White-footed Mouse (Peromyscus leucopus) and the deer mouse (Peromyscus maniculatus), as well as other common species of mouse-like rodents around the world, also sometimes live in houses.^ Long ago I lived in worlds where sometimes emacs was not available.

Cats, wild dogs, foxes, birds of prey, snakes and even certain kinds of arthropods have been known to prey heavily upon mice. .Nevertheless, because of its remarkable adaptability to almost any environment, and its ability to live commensally with humans, the mouse is one of the most successful mammalian genera living on Earth today.^ Most of the so-called field success of Dvorak - and there is precious little - tends to be because the testees never learned properly how to type on a QWERTY. .

The original motivation for the domestication of cats is thought to have been for their predation of mice and their relatives, the rats.[citation needed]
Primarily nocturnal animals, mice compensate for their poor eyesight with a keen sense of hearing, and rely especially on their sense of smell to locate food and avoid predators.[3]

Reproduction

Pups that are just a day old
Breeding onset is at about 50 days of age in both females and males, although females may have their first estrus at 25–40 days. Mice are polyestrous and breed year round; ovulation is spontaneous. The duration of the estrous cycle is 4–5 days and estrus itself lasts about 12 hours, occurring in the evening. Vaginal smears are useful in timed matings to determine the stage of the estrous cycle. Mating is usually nocturnal and may be confirmed by the presence of a copulatory plug in the vagina up to 24 hours post-copulation. The presence of sperm on a vaginal smear is also a reliable indicator of mating.[4]
Female mice housed together tend to go into anestrus and do not cycle. .If exposed to a male mouse or the pheromones of a male mouse, most of the females will go into estrus in about 72 hours.^ The idea for a Mouse Hand Warmer® came about after spending many years working long, late hours sitting at a computer.

This synchronization of the estrous cycle is known as the Whitten effect. .The exposure of a recently bred mouse to the pheromones of a strange male mouse may prevent implantation (or pseudopregnancy), a phenomenon known as the Bruce effect.^ Patients with Raynaud's phenomenon who have no symptoms other than the color changes of extremities may require only measures to prevent complications.

[4]
The average gestation period is 20 days. A fertile postpartum estrus occurs 14–24 hours following parturition, and simultaneous lactation and gestation prolongs gestation 3–10 days owing to delayed implantation. The average litter size is 10–12 during optimum production, but is highly strain dependent. As a general rule, inbred mice tend to have longer gestation periods and smaller litters than outbred and hybrid mice. The young are called pups and weigh 0.5–1.5 g (0.018–0.053 oz) at birth, are hairless, and have closed eyelids and ears. Cannibalism is uncommon, but females should not be disturbed during parturition and for at least 2 days postpartum. .Pups are weaned at 3 weeks of age; weaning weight is 10–12 g (0.35–0.42 oz).^ Lahur on March 27, 2007 10:42 PM From Ben, ages ago: > * Test subjects consistently report that keyboarding is faster than > mousing.

If the postpartum estrus is not utilized, the female resumes cycling 2–5 days postweaning.[4]
Newborn male mice are distinguished from newborn females by noting the greater anogenital distance and larger genital papilla in the male. This is best accomplished by lifting the tails of littermates and comparing perineums.[4]

Laboratory mice

Mice are common experimental animals in biology and psychology primarily because they are mammals, and also because they share a high degree of homology with humans. .They are the most commonly used mammalian model organism, more common than rats.^ More often than not, they don't.

However, certain strains have been known to be quite temperamental. Mice and rats have the same organs in the same places, just different proportions.

Species

All members of the Mus genus are referred to as mice. However, the term mouse can also be applied to species outside of this genus. Mouse often refers to any small muroid rodent, while rat refers to larger muroid rodents. Therefore these terms are not taxonomically specific. For simplicity, only rodents belonging to the Mus genus are listed here.

As pets

Many people buy mice as companion pets. They can be playful, loving and can grow used to being handled. Pet mice should not be left unsupervised outside as they have many natural predators, including (but not limited to) birds, cats and dogs. Male mice tend to have a stronger odor than the females. Well looked after mice can make ideal pets. Some common mouse care products are:
.
  • Cage — Usually a hamster or gerbil cage, but special mouse cages are now available.
  • Food — Special pelleted and seed-based food is available.^ Made in the USA by IGMproduct.com, the Mouse Hand Warmer is now available at BuyAmericanMart.com .
    • Cold Mouse Hand,Mouse Hand Warmer®,Warm Mouse,Warm Mouse Pad,Heated Computer Keyboard-ValueRays® 10 February 2010 13:39 UTC coldmousehand.com [Source type: General]

    Mice can generally eat most rodent food (for rats, mice, hamsters, gerbils, etc)
  • Bedding — Usually made of hardwood pulp, such as aspen, sometimes from shredded, uninked paper or recycled virgin wood pulp. Using corn husk bedding is avoided because it promotes Aspergillis fungus, and can grow mold once it gets wet, which is rough on their feet. Mice should not be exposed to pine or other scented tree chips as many studies show these to have adverse effects on lung function in mice.[citation needed]
Pet mice
Some benefits of having mice as pets are
  • Minimal shedding and allergens
  • Entertaining and interactive
  • Inexpensive
  • Clean (contrary to popular belief)
  • Socially self-sufficient when in a group of other mice
  • Less likely to bite than other rodent pets
  • Relatively intelligent
  • Bond well to their owners
  • Are playful and attentive
Disadvantages include:
  • Short lifespan
  • Small and fragile (not as easy to handle as a dog or a cat)
  • Defecate and urinate frequently
  • Nocturnal
  • Frequent eye infections when under stress
  • Easily subject to disease when without optimal care
  • Frequent reproduction

Nutrition

In nature, mice are herbivores, consuming any kind of fruit or grain from plants.[5] Due to this, mice adapt well to urban areas and are known for eating most all types of food scraps, especially cheese. In captivity, mice are commonly fed commercial pelleted mouse diet. .These diets are nutritionally complete, but they still need a large variety of vegetables.^ It's important to note that these drugs are not going to completely eliminate Raynaud's, but if they were having ten episodes a week, maybe they'll have four episodes a week.
  • Cold Mouse Hand,Mouse Hand Warmer®,Warm Mouse,Warm Mouse Pad,Heated Computer Keyboard-ValueRays® 10 February 2010 13:39 UTC coldmousehand.com [Source type: General]

Food intake is approximately 15 g (0.53 oz) per 100 g (3.5 oz) of body weight per day; water intake is approximately 15 ml (0.53 imp fl oz; 0.51 US fl oz) per 100 g of body weight per day.[4]

As food

"Pinkie" mice for sale as reptile food
Mice are a staple in the diet of many small carnivores. Humans have eaten mice since prehistoric times and still eat them as a delicacy throughout eastern Zambia and northern Malawi,[6] as well as in parts of east Asia[citation needed], although they are no longer routinely consumed by humans elsewhere. They are an excellent seasonal source of protein.
In various countries mice are used as pet food[7] for pets such as snakes, lizards, frogs, tarantulas and birds of prey, and many pet stores carry mice for this purpose. Some countries, such as Germany and the United Kingdom, have banned this practice, citing ethical concerns regarding both predator and prey.[8]
Common terms used to refer to different ages/sizes of mice when sold for pet food are "pinkies", "fuzzies", "crawlers", "hoppers", and "adults"[9]. Pinkies are newborn mice that have not yet grown fur; fuzzies have some fur but are not very mobile; hoppers have a full coat of hair and are fully mobile but are smaller than adult mice. Mice without fur are easier for the animal to consume, however mice with fur may be more convincing as animal feed. These terms are also used to refer to the various growth stages of rats (see Fancy rat).

The Mouse
by Saki
From Reginald in Russia and Other Sketches
THEODORIC VOLER HAD been brought up, from infancy to the confines of middle age, by a fond mother whose chief solicitude had been to keep him screened from what she called the coarser realities of life. .When she died she left Theodoric alone in a world that was as real as ever, and a good deal coarser than he considered it had any need to be.^ It might not have the latest sensor technology but it is probably more than most gamers will ever really need.

To a man of his temperament and upbringing even a simple railway journey was crammed with petty annoyances and minor discords, and as he settled himself down in a second-class compartment one September morning he was conscious of ruffled feelings and general mental discomposure. He had been staying at a country vicarage, the inmates of which had been certainly neither brutal nor bacchanalian, but their supervision of the domestic establishment had been of that lax order which invites disaster.
The pony carriage that was to take him to the station had never been properly ordered, and when the moment for his departure drew near, the handyman who should have produced the required article was nowhere to be found. .In this emergency Theodoric, to his mute but very intense disgust, found himself obliged to collaborate with the vicar's daughter in the task of harnessing the pony, which necessitated groping about in an ill-lighted outbuilding called a stable, and smelling very like one--except in patches where it smelled of mice.^ And wired all the way baby…I can’t stand wireless mice, except for rechargeable ones.

.Without being actually afraid of mice, Theodoric classed them among the coarser incidents of life, and considered that Providence, with a little exercise of moral courage, might long ago have recognized that they were not indispensable, and have withdrawn them from circulation.^ Weak muscles are usually too long, unless they are in a state of spasm, which occurs as a protective response in order to keep from being overstretched.

As the train glided out of the station Theodoric's nervous imagination accused himself of exhaling a weak odor of stable yard, and possibly of displaying a moldy straw or two on his unusually well-brushed garments. .Fortunately the only other occupation of the compartment, a lady of about the same age as himself, seemed inclined for slumber rather than scrutiny; the train was not due to stop till the terminus was reached, in about an hour's time, and the carriage was of the oId-fashioned sort that held no communication with a corridor, therefore no further traveling companions were likely to intrude on Theodoric's semiprivacy.^ This seems like an odd way to implement the second scrolling wheel, but it works since the placement of the two wheels make it virtually impossible to use both of them at the same time (and if you try to trick the software and use both at the same time, it will ignore the horizontal wheel).

.MOUSE, in its original sense probably the name of the semidomesticated house-mouse (Mus musculus), the type of the genus Mus and of the family Muridae. Zoologically, there is no distinction between mice and rats; these names being employed respectively for most or all of the smaller and larger "mouselike" and "rat-like" representatives of the Muridae, whether they belong to the genus Mus or not.^ There is simply no need to use the mouse when you use these.

.It is true indeed that in zoological nomenclature some of these are distinguished as "voles" (see VOLE), but this is not in accord with popular usage, where such creatures - come under the designation either of water-rats or field-mice.^ Besides how would pet mice and rats even know what it is when they see it?

^ Care must be taken to investigate fully the supplier's reputation in the research field before utilization of these mice.

The distinctive characters of the typical mice (and rats), i.e. those included in the genus Mus, are dealt with in the article RODENTIA. .With the exception of Madagascar, the genus Mus ranges over practically the whole of the Old World, having indigenous representatives even in Australasia; while the house-mouse, with man's involuntary aid, has succeeded in establishing itself throughout the civilized world.^ The range of movement in a common house mouse is very limited; it may be an area of only 15 square meters.

^ Through introduction by man the common house mouse now frequents most of the world.

.The following is a brief notice of the species of true mice (that is to say, those generally included in the genus Mus) inhabiting the British Isles.^ Other peripheral makers follow suit with a new generation of more accurate and battery-efficient wireless mice.

These are three in number. M. musculus, the house-mouse, originally a native of Central Asia, has spread to all the inhabited parts of the globe. .M. sylvaticus, the wood or long-tailed field-mouse, is a species common in many parts of England, often taking to barns and out-houses for shelter during the winter.^ The name mouse, originated at the Stanford Research Institute , derives from the resemblance of early models (which had a cord attached to the rear part of the device, suggesting the idea of a tail) to the common mouse .

^ The range of movement in a common house mouse is very limited; it may be an area of only 15 square meters.

^ The common house mouse is light brown to black above and whitish below, often with a buffy wash and tail that is lighter below.

It is of about the same size and proportions as M. musculus, but of a bright reddish-grey colour, with a pure white belly. M. minutus, the harvest-mouse, is the smallest of the European mice, seldom exceeding 22 or 3 in. in length; and of a yellowish-red colour, with comparatively short ears and tail. .It lives entirely away from houses, commonly taking up its abode in wheat or hay fields, where it builds a round grass nest about the size of a cricket-ball, in which it brings up its young.^ As the day got later, it was time for those who lived further away to start thinking about getting home.

Its range extends from England to Japan. .In regard to the first it is noteworthy that house-mice isolated on a small sandbank near Dublin have developed a special colouring of their own; also that distinct local varieties, M. musculus muralis and M. m.^ Agilent develops the first optical mouse sensor that works without need for a special pad, providing a breakthrough for the optical tracking revolution.

faeroensis,
inhabit respectively St Kilda and the Faeroes. .In Central Asia there exists a wild mouse (M. bactrianus), and likewise a second species (M. wagneri), with the habits of a house-mouse, both of which are closely allied to M. musculus; while there is a third kind (M. gentilis), also nearly related, in the deserts of North Africa.^ The Compact Oxford English Dictionary (third edition) and the fourth edition of The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language endorse both computer mice and computer mouses as correct plural forms for computer mouse .

.According to Major G. E. H. Barrett-Hamilton it is probable that M. bactrianus and M. musculus are respectively desert and house modifications descended from some Central Asian ancestor more or less nearly allied to M. wagneri. As regards the other two British species, it must suffice to say that there are several local races of each; Mus sylvaticus being represented by several in the British Isles, although there is but one British representative of M. minutus. It maybe added that by some naturalists both M. sylvaticus and M. minutus are separated from Mus as Micromys. See G. E. H. Barrett - Hamilton, "Note on the Harvest-Mice of the Palaearctic Region," Annals and Magazine of Nat.^ There are more inbred strains of mice than any other mammalian species.

It is said that no fewer than twenty-three species of this group ('akhbar=Arab. ferah) of animals inhabit Palestine. God "laid waste" the people of Ashdod by the terrible visitation of field-mice, which are like locusts in their destructive effects (1Sam 6:4, 11, 18). Herodotus, the Greek historian, accounts for the destruction of the army of Sennacherib (2Kg 19:35) by saying that in the night thousands of mice invaded the camp and gnawed through the bow-strings, quivers, and shields, and thus left the Assyrians helpless.

A mouse (plural mice) is a rodent, which is a kind of mammal. These small animals are often used in science experiments, or sometimes kept as pets. Some mice carry diseases. This causes some people to think of mice as disgusting pests. Many other people think mice are cute and fun animals.

Because mice are rodents, they are related to squirrels, rats, and beavers. The words rat and mouse are sometimes used to mean the same animal, but that is not correct. Mice eat weeds, seeds, berries, and more. They are eaten by owls, foxes, and cats, amongst others.
