Description - Harvest mice are easy to care for and make excellent pets for children and adults. Best kept in groups. Males should be kept singularly as they can fight. Mice love climbing so it would be good to add some climbing apparatus e.g rope or branches in their enclosure. They also enjoy going through tunnels and tubes. Mice are usually friendly and rarely bite however some can be more timid than others. Harvest mice can be quick when they are young but will tame down and become very tame.
Cleaning - Clean out enclosure at least once a week and disinfect.
