Does anyone know where to get a pet mouse?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I had adopted a pet mouse earlier this year called Gary Oldman, and sadly he died a couple of weeks ago. I want to get another one for Christmas, although no mouse will ever sufficiently replace the love and affection that Gary gave me, I can try. I spoke to Pets at Home and the man had no idea where to get one? Does anyone know where I'd be able to find one (younger the better so that I have a year or two until I experience another harrowing mouse death)? Please help mend my broken, mouse-less heart. Any pet shops that sell mice or local mouse owners with babies?

PS: Please no comments about "there's one under my dishwasher you can have", have heard it a thousand times.

The average lifespan of a mouse kept in captivity is 2 years.

Pet mice have one of the shortest lifespan of all pet rodents.

Good luck with your search.

No Idea where you might be able to buy one.

Don't seem to see many Pet Shops these days. Used to loads in the 50's - 60's

Selling Budgies.. Hamsters... Fish.. everything

    • I hope you never run into the last character eating chicken on my bus-he was an older guy, and when he'd finished his food, removed his dentures and picked them clean 😗 I'm still getting over it!
    • We once chose a decorator based on a long history of good reviews on here. It didn’t occur to us that he would ‘outsource’ the work to someone else who did a pretty poor job. Lesson learned. Always check that the person with the good reviews will be actually doing the work.
    • Openreach is a wholly owned subsidiary of BT Group but is obliged under regulation to act even-handedly with BT UK and all other of its wholesale customers - that is that all companies supplying services through the Openreach local Network must be treated similarly - so BT Retail has no better, or hopefully worse, access to Openreach as does any other competing company. Openreach has 'passed' much of East Dulwich with fibre to the premises (FTTP) capability.  BT is rebranding all its Retail services to 'EE' (that is, services to private/ residential customers) and I believe to SMEs as well. It is keeping the BT brand as a marketing name for its Major Business business. The maximum speed for FTTC (fibre to the cabinet) services is about 60-70MG to the household router - which is described I believe by some estate agents as superfast, curiously. The real FTTP services in ED are at the moment 500 or 1000MG to the router, and broadly achieve quite close to that, although speeds to the apparatus via WiFi are much less. To get actual benefit of the fibre speed you will need an ethernet network internally.
