Mice are great pets for several reasons. They are small, inexpensive, and very easy to care for. They are very clean animals that continually groom themselves by licking and combing their fur. Female mice are odorless. If they are well taken care of and handled often they can become very tame and enjoyable. They are a great first pet for children.

  Mice are the smallest mammals to ever be domesticated, and mouse breeding is an ancient hobby. The common mouse is a curious little creature that makes a very interesting companion. (They are also very cute!). They have a life span of 1 to 3 years.

  The Mongolian Gerbil is a small furry animal with sparkling dark eyes and a cute tufted tail. They are fastidiously clean; eating in one area of the cage, nesting in another area, and making their bathroom in still another. This makes their daily care easy and undemanding. They are also hardy and much less prone to respiratory illnesses than other small rodent pets.

   Their small size means Gerbils can be housed in a relatively small cage though they are quite active and will need room to play. They have a natural curiosity and need to explore, but they are also very quiet. They are gentle, attractive, and amusing to watch. Gerbils are great pets for anybody but especially for people living in apartments or houses where space is at a premium.

   Gerbils should be kept as a pair or in small groups as they are very social and need the grooming and attention of their own kind. They do not do well with strangers though so It is best to get gerbils from the same colony or when they are young. Keep same sex gerbils together if you don’t want to have babies!

Hamsters are small animals which makes them easy to care for and inexpensive to keep. Their small size means they can be housed in relatively small cages, even an old birdcage or an aquarium can be used.

All this aspects make them great pets for anybody but especially for apartments or houses where space is at a premium. They are nocturnal, so 90% of their waking hours are at night when the cage is dark. They can also be a bit nervous when moved to a new home, so they may take a bit of time, along with patience and love, to become settled.

Finches are one of the more popular pet birds.

Exotic Zebra Finches, Poephila guttata, are small birds (averaging 9cm) and are native to the the Australian grasslands.

Another major attraction of the zebra finch is the soft chirping sound it makes. Many individuals find the sweet sound of the zebra finch to be soothing and pleasant, in stark contrast to many other varieties of loud squawking birds. The male is also generally the more vocal of the sexes.

Zebra finches are extremely social birds; however, only social with other birds. Typically, zebra finches are shy around people and do not like to be petted or held.

The Zebra Finch’s primary food is seed. Millet is the principal seed in any finch formula. Properly balanced seed formulas are readily available at pet shops. Zebra finches love millet sprays. Zebra finches also need a diet supplemented with certain greens, vegetables and fruits.

Finches eat high seed diet that is high in fat and not as nutritious as other diets. They are harder to increase protein levels than some other species. A vitamin supplement in the water is recommended. The brand name Vivi 13 doesn’t change the taste. having plenty of food available at all times is crucial as well.

A bird with musical charm is the Peking Nightingale or Japanese Robin (Leiothrix lutea). His song is the richest and warmest full-throated warble of any of the commonly imported softbills. It has much of the quality with which an American robin greets the sun on an April morning after an all-night rain. The Pekings must come from a long line of sun worshippers, because as soon as the first streak of dawn appears, they begin their serenades.

The Peking is a lovely bird to see, as well as hear. Although the basic color is olive, one is so impressed with the face and the breast that he is inclined to describe the bird as yellow or orange. The wings have red, yellow, and orange feathers, also. The beak is peculiarly shaped; it is long and narrow and cherry red.

Pekings are a fast bird. They seem to change positions without moving. His speed is fantastic.

The Peking mixes welll with other birds. Feeding is simple. They consume a lot of fruit and mealworms, plus and insectivorous mixture. They live long and well on such a diet. They are about seven inches long.
