Have you ever had a mouse in the house?
Although a pet mouse might make an adorable addition to the family, some mice may be more like uninvited houseguests. Before you decide to adopt a pet mouse, or run and hide when you find one running around your home, find out more about the life cycle stages of a mouse.
Mouse life cycle
Baby mice: Mice pups are small, roughly the size of a quarter, and only weigh about as much as a sheet of paper. They are blind and sometimes referred to as ‘pinkies’ due to the pink color of their hairless bodies. Unless you find a mouse’s nest, you are unlikely to encounter baby mice.
