They're a bit dumb, but loving, and they like to be picked up so they can check out what I'm doing. A couple of them nap on my shoulder sometimes. They share this huge terrarium that I found with a mesh lid. It's got a two-story house, a wheel (sometimes two), a straw hut, a straw rolling ball, a seed log, a tower, and a ladder to climb. I'd share a picture, but they don't like to stay put and I need to clean their wheel off. Why they eat halfway up their wheel and seem content to run with the crumbs I will NEVER KNOW.
Anyways, since nobody ever really wants to hear about them in person, a general description of my little lovelies:
~ Neo: feeder mouse. 1 year old. Sick right now but super sweet and friendly. She favors the first floor of the house.
~ Tracer: the biggest, fattest mouse. Orange-gold. Eight months old. A little skittish, but cuddly. She likes the toilet paper rolls I put in there occasionally. So named because she was smaller than my thumb and quicksilver fast when we first took her home. She has a gimp leg now, poor thing, but still gets around pretty quick.
~ Midna: the baby. Brindle with a white stripe. 6 months. She's smaller than the others but doesn't give them the chance to push her around. She was a surprise adoption from a coworker who didn't want her anymore because his girlfriend doesn't like mice. Has a habit of reaching for me and clinging to my finger when pulling her out of the terrarium.
~ Abbadon: solid black fancy mouse. Another surprise adoption from the vet we go to. She's over a year old, but we're not sure exactly how much older. A couple months, maybe. Abby is standoffish and skitters away from human hands, but curls up at the bottom of the mouse pile when they sleep.
~ Triss: Actually TRSS. Midna's sister. We had Midna's name pegged pretty much straight away when we first got them, but the little silver-grey mouse was a harder pick. Later my SO suggested "Triss" as a name, as per his friend. Three months later he told me it means "the real Slim Shady". Thanks for that, N. Triss likes to burrow under the wheel.
~ Toasted Marshmallow Snowflake: Because I can never decide between Toast, Marshmallow, or Snowflake. Eight months. She was a pale grey with a darker nose and ears when she was young. Toast's fur has darkened considerably since, but she still has that dark strip of fur around her neck that looks like a scarf. She likes to chill near the top of the ladder.
~ Bea: Previously Beatrice before Triss came. Eight months old. Chincilla grey, y'know, like two-toned? She's pretty sizable and quick, but not quite as big as Tracer. When Tracer was injured, she brought our goldie food. Still sort of standoffish, but once we've got her she's happy to play. She naps on my shoulder sometimes. Her favourite spot is on the second floor of the house, but she usually sleeps in the hut with her best friend (guess who).
...I've talked too much already. It's just nice to ramble about them somewhere, y'know?

Both are such sweethearts... sometimes Ves can have a snappy attitude tho, I'm thinking it's cuz her rats were too small for her, and I recently upped her rat size, so she should be a lil better. They're so cute.
