sweet little man is the first and only mouse I ever had that will eat
while sitting in my hand. He is also one of the most licky mice I ever had,
and is starting to want to be held, he came to me willingly today xD such a
precious treasure. He gives kisses on the lips. He is the son of Frankie and
Brightback, and a keeper for life.
I know many mice can be taught to eat in your hand, but this boy was just
over a month old when he first did it! He seemed to have an inborn sweetness
few of my others ever had. His two brothers who I am also keeping, Zazu and
Taka, are sweet and will walk into my hand willingly too. He is also a crowd
pleaser, at work he attracted about ten people all wanting to look at him. He
is a tuxedo, but also a belted. The marking on his neck and shoulder is known
as a belt. His brother Zazu has one too, though not as striking. His brother
Taka is almost all black except his tummy. He also has a white brother, who
is less friendly. I'm giving the white brother, Buddy to a friend who wants
him as a pet. This litter was unplanned, I never meant for Brightback to be
pregnant. But I used to be a breeder so I know how to raise mice to be sweet and tame.
Mufasa also has some lovely sisters. I marked his tail with a non toxic
highlighter as until recently I had a lot of trouble telling him and his
furball brother Taka apart. In the twin picture, Mufasa is on the left. He is
a friendly wee squish,and is living with his brothers until they get old
enough to start bickering. Boys will be boys. Mufasa also loves to climb my
face, but he tickles. I love him very much!
