Dear pet fanciers:

Mitten mice really do appear to have forepaw mittens.
They look like natural hybrids between native white-footed mice (which "wear" FOUR "mittens" each); and native deer mice...which wear NO "mittens."

Since just one release of my wildest mice freed sufficient space to breed animals that are less wild I believe that a few more generations could produce "pettable" pets.

The problem is that "Look but don't touch" mice are (still) too "difficult" for most children...AND may NOT be quite "wild" enough to survive release in an environment where mice HAVE to hide effectively.

I pray that somebody will come for some...They don't ship MICE at a post office...and I can neither drive a car nor find anyone willing to take them to a distant showground where serious animal fanciers could get to see them.

They are too beautiful to lose.

Yours very truly,

Louise Esther Rothstein

Sounds like your doing a cool breeding project, hope you can find them a good home.
