      I like my mice a lot. I am responsible for their welfare, so I care about their health and happiness. Mice are actually stressed by being handled by humans, so I make sure I am calm and confident when handling them to minimise their stress.

      Mice respond in a positive way to good handling and by having a top notch environment free from stress. I like my mice, some have tuffs of sticky up hair on their heads so its pretty hard not to like these! It is easy to tell when a mouse is not happy, so by keeping them happy we can assume that they don’t mind tolerating us…
