Mice Babies

I know not everyone thinks mice are cute, but I love my little critters and I love my new little mice babies!

I think it's really interesting seeing how much they seem to grown over night. They'll be one week old tomorrow. In another three weeks they'll be weaned from their mummy and fully grown... scary.

Day one: tiny little pink jelly beans.
Day two
Day three: ohhhh look at mummy
Day four

Day five: everyone with mummy and then the five girls be themselves.
Day six: love...

Day six: look how they're growing and starting to get fur. Those are my two favourite boys. I'll be keeping them. The  black and white has been named Patrick, but the other we'll name when we see his true colour. Look at that fat belly and little ears. 
You can really see how much they have grown since day one. Yes, that little fella is a piggy and the biggest of the bunch but isn't he cute. 

Good thing Smokey hasn't found the babies! Their room door has been closed off to her. She gave one of my other mice a fright last night. Poor little Maggie played dead for almost 30min. Smokey jumped at her cage and tried to topple it. Maggie has now been moved to the safe room away from Smokey.


  1. Awww they are so cute!
    Continue to show their growth?

  2. They're little cuties! I had a pet mouse when I was little so I like mice too :)

  3. Cute little Earthlings :) Yes, I concur - please continue to show theit growth! Fascinating.

  4. OMG, I thought I would be squeamish looking at these pics, but they are SO cute! My boys had fun looking at them too...thanks for sharing!

  5. I'm so glad people enjoyed seeing our babies. I've been taking pictures of them every day for my class...who can't wait to meet them.

    I'll post another set of pictures next week.
