It's hard to keep track of these little ones, as they're almost constantly in motion. They are only slightly less active than adult savis mice, and more sporadic in their sleeping patterns. They don't build any nests, or sleep in piles, but rather wander at will. It's just as likely that they fall asleep by the fire as it is they are found dozing in a cake. When asleep, nothing will awaken a savis mouse hatchling, and most people just pop them in a pocket and go about their day.

These creatures are regarded as pests by some, mostly during special times of the year. Savis mice will devour anything sweet, and tunnel through walls in their quests to find food. Any sort of pastry or treat is in great danger if left unattended for even a few moments, and though small, these companions can demolish any amount of food. They desire gingerbread items above all else, and will do anything to get them. Most people make an extra batch and leave them out for the mice, rather than have their food stolen away. Perhaps because of their predilection for sweets, these creatures are amazingly active. They remain still only when asleep, and even then only rest for a few hours. This slumber is usually only achieved when the savis mouse in question has consumed a great deal of food, and enters a state that some have dubbed a 'sugar coma'. As soon as they awaken, these mice become more energetic than ever, and dart away at once. Despite running around all day, savis mice are not very difficult to find. They emit a strong odor that smells exactly like a fresh batch of cookies taken from an oven, and are almost always near a kitchen. Somewhat surprisingly, these little ones are not preyed on very heavily. Perhaps it is due to their taste, which is probably much like sugar and not very tasty to most predators.
